While watching the Men's World Cup this year, you may wonder when the better U.S. National Team is set to play. Yes, the Women's World Cup is coming soon, just not until next summer.

When does the women’s World Cup start?

The 2023 Women's World Cup will be held between June 20 and August 20 in, you guessed it, 2023.

It's an exciting time for fans of women's soccer as FIFA is even considering upping the prize money for the 2023 World Cup. The word 'considering' is doing a lot of work in that tweet, but we'll hear them out.

Which country will host the women’s World Cup?

We're heading down under! New Zealand and Australia are the hosts for this World Cup go around!

Did the USWNT qualify for the World Cup?

Duh! The US Women's national team qualified for the World Cup and they are seeking their third straight world cup victory. The pressure is on for the three-peat as past U.S. champions have begun to question the resolve of this USWNT roster. And by past champions, we really just mean Carli Lloyd.

Which other teams have qualified for the women’s World Cup?

The field is almost complete for the 2023 Women's World Cup. Most of the teams have qualified with a select few remaining in a final chance playoff pool. The groups, along with the playoff pools, are as follows.

GROUP A: New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, Phillipines

GROUP B: Australia, Republic of Ireland, Canada, Nigeria

GROUP C: Spain, Costa Rica, Zambia, Japan

GROUP D: England, Denmark, China, Playoff Group B Winners

GROUP E: USA, Vietnam, Netherlands, Playoff Group A Winners

GROUP F: France, Jamaica, Brazil, Playoff Group C Winners

GROUP G: Sweden, South Africa, Italy, Argentina

PLAYOFF GROUP A: Cameroon, Thailand, Portugal

PLAYOFF GROUP B: Senegal, Haiti, Chili

PLAYOFF GROUP C: Chinese Taipei, Paraguay, Panama, Papua New Guinea

Who will play for the USWNT at the World Cup?

The final team has yet to be selected but here was the latest roster for the recent USWNT friendlies.

Can you bet on the Women's World Cup?

Not yet.

Sportsbooks tend to stay away from women's sports for reasons that remain unclear, though lines for women's college basketball and EuroLeague have been more visible this year than in year's past.

Maybe by 2023 there will be enough of an uproar for the Women's World Cup to be available to bet on in greater depth — and with much more of a runway.
