The 2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup to return to U.S. soil!

This Monday, May 26, FIFA President Sepp Blatter announced that the United States will host the 2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup after FIFA chose to move the tournament out of China due to the threat of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The United States was chosen over Sweden, the only other country besides the USA to make a formal bid to host the tournament. RFK Stadium could serve as a possible venue for some of the cup matches.

“This is an historic day for soccer in the United States,” said U.S. Soccer President Dr. S. Robert Contiguglia. “We now have approximately 120 days to do something that no one has ever attempted. Staging an event of this stature and size in this short amount of time will be a great challenge, but we will succeed because of the support and organizational abilities of the entire U.S. Soccer family.”

Interested in volunteering with the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup? Volunteers will be coordinated through the U.S. Soccer Human Resources Department. To let U.S. Soccer know you're interested, please send a message to including your name, mailing address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, any previous event history and your resume.
