Background

On September 15 2006 FIFA officially announced Chile as the host country. It will be the third time Chile organizes a football world cup, after the 1962 FIFA World Cup and the 1987 FIFA World Youth Championship, but the first in the women's competition. The decision came as a surprise to Chile, as it had bid in August 2006 to host the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, which was finally granted to New Zealand (Ecuador was unsuccessful in both bids). Chile previously hosted the 2006 FIFA U-20 Women's South American Cup and the first U-17 Women's South American Cup in January 2008.

Venues

Four different cities were selected as venues in an open bidding process. Changes to the stadiums to comply with FIFA standards will be carried out from December 2007 to September 2008.
