Eight countries, including Argentina, have stayed in the bidding contest to host the 2023 Women's World Cup, which will include 32 teams for the first time, FIFA said Tuesday.
FIFA says it has sent "the updated bidding and hosting documents" to the eight member federations. They must file detailed bid plans for the first 32-team tournament by Dec. 13.
The eight are Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa and South Korea. Belgium and Bolivia have withdrawn from the original list of 10 nations ahead of the September 2 deadline for candidate submissions.
South Korea have indicated they will seek to co-host the event with North Korea.
