Australia out of Women’s World Cup 2011 bid race

FIFA received a formal letter from FFA CEO Ben Buckley confirming Australia’s withdrawal which narrows the field of potential hosts to three: Canada, Germany and Peru.

The candidate associations will have the opportunity to present their bids to FIFA on October 29.

The following day 30 the FIFA Executive Committee will take the decision of where the next edition of the world’s premier women’s football competition will take place.
