About FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023
The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup will be the ninth edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, contested by the national teams of FIFA member states. This edition will be the first in the history of the Women’s World Cup to feature 32 national teams (FIFA increased the number of teams from 24 to 32). The United States won in 2015 and 2019, so will enter as two-time defending champions.
Following the success of the 2015 and 2019 editions, FIFA decided to expand the upcoming 2023 edition to 32 teams. It is noteworthy that in 2015 and 2019 also there was an increase in the number of teams (from 16 to 24). The massive turnout of spectators at the stadiums in the last two World Cups has been a big boost for FIFA.
On 31 July 2019, the FIFA Council unanimously decided to increase the number of teams from 24 to 32.  It was also decided to double the cool prize money of the Women’s World Cup as compared to the 2019 edition.
In the group stage, 32 teams will be divided into groups of 8 (4 teams in 1 group) and will play one match against each team in their group. The top two teams from each group will advance to the knockout stage. The knockout stage will consist of last-16, quarter-finals, semi-finals, and finals.
