  • The FIFA Women's World Cup is an international association football competition contested by the senior women's national teams of the members of Fédération Internationale de Football Association, the sport's global governing body. The championship has been awarded every four years since the 1991 inaugural tournament held in China, after the first men's tournament was held 61 years prior. The United States beat Norway 2-1 in the final, to become winners of the first ever FIFA Women's World Cup. The current title holder is Japan. The current format of the tournament involves 24 teams competing for the title at venues within the host nation over a period of about three weeks;– this phase is often called the World Cup Finals. A qualification phase, which currently takes place over the preceding three years, is used to determine which teams qualify for the tournament together with the host nation. The FIFA Women's World Cup is recognized as the most important international competition in women's football and is played amongst women's national football teams of the member states of FIFA, the sport's global governing body.
