Korea is hoping to do well in the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup set to take place in Canada this June, but it is also hoping for something else. FIFA will reveal the host nation for the 2019 Women's World Cup next month in Lausanne, Switzerland. Korea and France are the final contenders.
If Korea wins the hosting rights to the 2019 Women's World cup, the rights to host the 2018 U-20 Women's World Cup will automatically be given. Having already been selected as the host of the 2017 U-20 World Cup, Korea will then host three straight years of World Cup events.
