Host selectionedit

Six original candidates

Six nations, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Peru and Switzerland, initially declared their interest in hosting the 2011 Women's World Cup The German Football Association announced its hopes to host the tournament on 26 January 2006, following a pledge from German Chancellor Angela Merkel to fully support a potential bid2 All six nations officially announced their interest by a 1 March 2007 deadline and acknowledged their intention of bidding by 3 May 2007 to FIFA

The final bidding dossiers had to be handed over before 1 August 2007 Switzerland withdrew on 29 May 2007, stating that Europe is heavily focused on France and Germany, and a third European bid appeared futile On 27 August 2007, France also withdrew, reportedly in exchange for Germany's support for their bid to host the men's UEFA Euro 20163 Later Australia 12 October 2007 and Peru 17 October 2007 voluntarily dropped out of the race as well, leaving only Canada and Germany as the remaining candidates On 30 October 2007, the FIFA Executive Committee voted to assign the tournament to Germany4 Canada was eventually awarded the 2015 Women's World Cup four years later5

Venuesedit

After the German Football Association DFB expressed its intention to bid for the Women's World Cup, 23 German cities applied to host World Cup games Twelve cities were chosen for the official bidding dossier handed over to FIFA in August 20076 On 30 September 2008, the DFB executive committee decided to use nine stadiums for the tournament; the original candidates Essen, Magdeburg and Bielefeld were not chosen as World Cup venues7

The official opening game was held between Germany and Canada at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, the venue of the 2006 men's World Cup Final; it was the only match played in Berlin However, it was not the first match of the tournament—it was preceded by a match at Rhein-Neckar-Arena in Sinsheim pitting France and Nigeria The final of the tournament took place at the Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt, the venue of the 2005 men's Confederations Cup final Borussia-Park in Mönchengladbach and Frankfurt's Commerzbank-Arena hosted the semi-finals The third place play-off was held at Rhein-Neckar-Arena7

Since 2007, five of the stadiums were either newly built Augsburg, Dresden and Sinsheim or remodeled Bochum and Leverkusen89101112 Six stadiums will be home grounds for German First Bundesliga clubs in the upcoming 2011–12 season, while the other three will be home to Second Bundesliga clubs in the same season Compared to the 2006 men's World Cup, several smaller venues were chosen; six stadiums have a capacity of 20,000 to 30,000 seats All cities will stage a total of four matches, with the exceptions of Berlin and Mönchengladbach; the latter will host three games13 The total capacity of the nine venues is roughly 330,000 Overall, approximately one million tickets will be available14

Several of the stadiums are officially referred to simply as "FIFA World Cup Stadium", because FIFA prohibits sponsorship of stadiums unless the stadium sponsors are also official tournament sponsors With no standing-room terraces allowed, all stadiums have a lower total capacity compared to German Bundesliga games Capacity data is given according to FIFA:15

Teams and qualificationedit

Main article: 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup qualification

Number of participating teamsedit

FIFA had considered the prospect of increasing the number of teams from 16 to 24, to reflect the growing global popularity of women's football and the Women's World Cup However, on 14 March 2008, the FIFA Executive Committee decided to keep the number of participants at 16, concerned that more teams would dilute the quality of play16 The idea of having 20 teams taking part, which had been discussed briefly, was ruled impossible to implement in terms of fixture planning and logistics17 During the 2007 Women's World Cup, FIFA president Sepp Blatter had campaigned for the idea to increase the number of teams, although this proposal was not unquestioned In particular the 11–0 victory of Germany over Argentina in the opening game of the 2007 tournament had caused a debate over whether there were 24 national teams on a comparable level18

Confederation allocationedit

In October 2008, the FIFA Executive Committee announced a change to the allocation of the qualifying berths for its continental confederations Asia was granted 3 automatic berths instead of 25 for the finals although in 2007 the host nation was an additional qualifier from Asia Europe’s allocation was reduced from 5 to 45 although it effectively increased to 55 because of the automatic qualification of the host nation The North/Central American and Caribbean confederation CONCACAF retained their 25 qualifiers, Africa and South America 2 each, and Oceania 1 The 16th qualifying spot was determined through a play-off between the third-placed team in CONCACAF and the winner of repechage play-offs in Europe19

FIFA also ruled that each confederation has to ensure that at least one third of its member associations enter their women's national teams for World Cup qualification, otherwise FIFA would re-examine the current slot allocation In Africa and the Middle East a considerable percentage of teams had withdrawn from World Cup qualification in the past19

For European teams, the 2011 Women's World Cup was also used as a qualification tournament for the 2012 Summer Olympics Besides Team Great Britain, Europe had two additional qualifiers for the Summer Olympics With Germany losing their quarter-final, France, which had already reached the semi-finals, secured qualification to the Olympics Sweden followed as UEFA's second team with its win against Australia2021

Qualified teamsedit

Qualification for the tournament took place between April 2009 and November 2010 As the host nation, Germany were granted automatic qualification, while the remaining national teams qualified through their continental confederations Most confederations used their continental championship tournaments – the AFC Women's Asian Cup, CAF Women's Championship, OFC Women's Championship, Sudamericano Femenino and CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup – to determine qualification The exception to this was UEFA, which used its own qualifying tournament22 One qualification spot was determined by a play-off between a UEFA and CONCACAF team

† – qualified via a play-off against Italy

Colombia and Equatorial Guinea made their debuts in the FIFA Women's World Cup Brazil, Germany, Japan, Nigeria, Norway, Sweden and the United States maintained their streak of qualifying for all six tournaments so far, while China PR failed to qualify for the first time ever This is Mexico's first appearance since 1999 and France's first appearance since 2003

Organizationedit

Local organizing committeeedit

Emblem and mascotedit

Mascot "Karla Kick"

The official World Cup emblem, called Arena Deutschland, was presented by Steffi Jones and Franz Beckenbauer in the break between the women's and the men's game of the German Cup final on 19 April 2008 It shows a stylized stadium with stripes in the national colours of Germany, black, red and gold, and a pictogram of the Women's World Cup trophy in the upper right corner It was designed by the Stuttgart advertising agency WVP29

Ticketsedit

Approximately one million tickets were available in total, with 900,000 on general sale31 350,000 tickets were offered at discount prices, mainly intended for families, clubs and schools, one of the key target groups of the Organising Committee As of 22 June 2011, 700,000 tickets have been sold32

The World Cup tickets were offered in several sales phases During the first sales period from 29 October 2009 to 31 August 2010, only so-called city series tickets were offered Each city series includes tickets for all games of that particular host city The prices ranged from €30 to €415 In the second sales period from 17 February to 31 August 2010, so-called 20Eleven tickets were sold to groups of at least 11 people, offered at a 20 percent discount and directed primarily at schools and clubs Single tickets for all matches were first sold starting 15 September 2010 The prices of individual tickets range from €10 to €200 On 18 March 2011, 100 days before the opening game, the last sales phase started, with all remaining tickets being sold in the order in which orders are received33

Budget and sponsorsedit

The tournament's budget has been set at €51 million34 The German Football Association plans to cover these costs in almost equal parts from ticket sales and from sponsors, primarily from six so-called National Supporters35 In order for the tournament to break even, the DFB has said about 80% of the tickets need to be sold, which would translate to an average attendance of 25,000 The DFB estimates to earn roughly €27 million through the general ticket sale34

From 2008 to 2010, the six National Supporters were presented: the tele-communications company Deutsche Telekom, the bank Commerzbank, the insurer Allianz, the retailer Rewe, the national mail company Deutsche Post and the national railway company Deutsche Bahn Aside from Deutsche Bahn, the sponsors are identical with those of the 2010 U-20 Women's World Cup36

Media coverageedit

The television coverage of the tournament was unprecedented For the first time, all matches were produced in high definition, with in-goal cameras and two steadicams being used for all matches For selected matches, the broadcast production comprised up to 18 cameras, including a spidercam and a helicopter camera37

In Germany the public broadcasters ARD and ZDF showed all 32 tournament games live Across Europe, all games were available on Eurosport in 34 countries and territories In the United States, ESPN and ESPN2 served as the official English-language broadcaster,38 while Univision carried coverage in Spanish In Canada, CBC Television and Sportsnet broadcast the tournament; the event was the first in a sub-licensing partnership for FIFA tournaments between the two networks39 In the United Kingdom, the games of the English national team were shown live by BBC Red Button and the BBC Sport website40 The final was shown live on BBC Three SBS held the broadcasting rights for Australia, while Al Jazeera broadcast matches in the Middle East and North Africa37
