The bid­ding doc­u­ments to host the world's biggest women's sport­ing event were developed under the motto 'Break­ing New Ground' reflect­ing the ini­tial let­ters of the three coun­tries.

In addi­tion to the joint BNG2027 bid, Brazil, South Africa (with­drew) and the USA together with Mexico (with­drew) also sub­mit­ted bids. On 17 May 2024, the FIFA Con­gress in Bangkok voted 119 to 78 in favour of Brazil to host the tour­na­ment.

With this bid, the three asso­ci­ations wanted to extend the exist­ing suc­cess of the FIFA Women's World Cup™ and strengthen women's foot­ball world­wide. In addi­tion to a com­pact concept with 13 sta­di­ums – 4 in Bel­gium, 5 in the Neth­er­lands and 4 in Ger­many (North Rhine-West­phalia) – the main focus laid on fan exper­i­ence and sus­tain­ab­il­ity.

After PRO­PRO­JEKT already sup­por­ted the DFB with the selec­tion of the German Can­did­ate Cities, the cooper­a­tion with the three asso­ci­ations was con­tin­ued in 2023. PRO­PRO­JEKT was respons­ible for the coordin­a­tion of the bid book devel­op­ment pro­cess and, together with AS+P, provided the bid team with tech­nical and coordin­a­tion sup­port in the pre­par­a­tion of the bid­ding doc­u­ments.

The biding doc­u­ments, which were sub­mit­ted to FIFA on 8 Decem­ber, include the 17-chapter bid book, an exec­ut­ive sum­mary in Eng­lish, Span­ish and French as well as addi­tional tech­nical doc­u­ments.
