India was originally handed the hosting rights for the 2020 edition. But the COVID-19 pandemic first forced its postponement to 2021 and then its cancellation. Last November, as a compensatory gesture, FIFA announced India as the host for the 2022 edition.

FIFA also announced that the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand will be played between July 20- August 20. The new play-off tournament for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 will be held from 17 to 23 February 2023.

The FIFA Council also stated that the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Costa Rica 2022 will be held between 10-28 August 2022, while a 14-team play-off for the FIFA Arab Cup 2021 will take place between 19 and 25 June this year.
