Gianni Infantino, who is the current FIFA president said “The bidding process was highly competitive. We would like to thank both of the bidders for their remarkable work. It was really, really well prepared.” The New Zealand and Australia bid was higher, they received 22 out of 35 votes cast by the FIFA council. Colombia got 13 votes from chairman Greg Clarke and the eight other UEFA members. No need to mention that Infantino was surprised by the UEFA members voting for Colombia even with the low FIFA’s technical evaluation. In the technical evaluation, Colombia received a score of 2.8 out of 5.0 while Australia and New Zealand received 4.1. However, UEFA replied to this action and said “represented a strategic opportunity for the development of women’s football in South America”.
