South Africa have pulled out of the contest to host the 2027 Women’s World Cup sitting fears fears they would have to deliver a “rush presentation” to FIFA during December.

The deadline for submitting comprehensive plan for the tournament is December 8 and South African officials believe it would be wiser to try and host the following edition in 2031.

“We felt it was better to present a well-prepared bid for 2031 rather than producing a rushed presentation”, said South African Football Association chief executive Lydia Monyepao.

The withdrawal of South Africa reduces the 2027 contest to Three bids -joint one by Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany and Mexico and the United States and one from Brazil.

A FIFA congress on May 17, 2024 will decide which bid succeeds and follows the co- hosts Australia and New Zealand in staging the increasingly popular four -yearly tournament.

Spain are the current champions having defeated England 1-0 in a final watched by a crowd of 75,784 in Sydney last August.
