The FIFA Women's World Cup is recognized as the most important international competition in women's football and is played among women's national football teams of the member states of FIFA, the sport's global governing body. The first Women's World Cup tournament was held in 1991. The tournament will have 24 teams competing for the title at venues within the host nation (Canada) over a period of about three weeks. A qualification phase, which took place over the preceding three years, was used to determine which teams qualify for the tournament together with the host nation. Of the six women's world cups played since 1991, the US Women's National team has won the tournament two times, finished second one time and finished in third place three times.
