History of FIFA Women’s World Cup

The first Women’s World Cup dates back to 1970 in Italy, where the first Women’s World Cup was held in July 1970. Another unofficial World Cup followed in Mexico in 1971, and Denmark took the title, beating Mexico 3-0 in the final at the Aztec Stadium. Mundialito was held four times in Italy in the 1980s, with two championships won by Italy and England.

The lifting of the ban on women’s football in many countries in the 1970s led to the establishment of new teams in many countries. After the official Continental Women’s Championship was held in Asia in 1975 and Europe in 1984, Ellen Weir announced that she wanted the FIFA Congress to do more to support women’s sports.

The 1988 FIFA Women’s Tournament in China was held to test the possibility of hosting the International Women’s World Cup. Twelve national teams, four from UEFA, three from AFC, two from CONCACAF, and one each from CONMEBOL, CAF, and AFC, participated in the competition. The opening match between China and Canada drew 45,000 spectators and was considered a success, with an average of 20,000 spectators. European champions Norway beat Sweden 1-0 in the final, while Brazil won on penalties and placed third. The tournament was considered a success, and FIFA approved the establishment of the 1991 World Cup, to be held again in China, on 30 June. There were 12 more teams and the USA beat Norway 2-1 in the final and Michelle Akers scored two goals. The

1995 Swedish version experimented with the idea of ​​suspending during the race, then tightening in the middle of the race, and only taking part in the game after a break. The time occurs only in the summoned game. In the 1995 final, the Norwegian team scored 17 goals in the group stage and beat the German team 2-0, and won their only match. One of the most famous moments of the 1999 World Cup was when US defender Brandy Chastain celebrated after scoring a goal against China.
