FIFA Women's World Cup

From Academic Kids

The FIFA Women's World Cup is the most important competition in international football (soccer) for women. Organised by FIFA, the sport's governing body, the World Cup tournament was first held in 1991.

The tournament reunites 16 female national football teams each four years, to compete for that sport's women's world championship. The FIFA Women's World Cup came as an idea of a FIFA official during the 1986 Men's World Cup in Mexico. One of the most famous moments in the tournament, and perhaps in the history of sports overall, is when Brandi Chastain took off her jersey and slid to her knees, showing her sports bra as she celebrated scoring the Cup-winning penalty against China in 1999.

The 1999 and 2003 Women's World Cup were both celebrated in the United States; in 2003 China was supposed to host it but it was moved because of SARS. As compensation, China retained its automatic qualification to the 2003 tournament as host nation, and received the 2007 tournament.

The next host country to be decided by vote will be that of the 2011 Women's World Cup.
