Fifa has received three bids to host the 2027 Women's World Cup.
The bids include a joint one from Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, who first announced their interest in hosting in October 2020.
The other two bids are from Brazil and a joint submission from Mexico and the United States.
South Africa had previously been named by Fifa among the prospective hosts but withdrew their bid
in November to focus on the 2031 tournament.
The winning bid will be decided by a vote at the Fifa congress in Bangkok on 17 May 2024.
Spain beat England in the final of the 2023 World Cup, held in Australia and New Zealand.
A statement from world football's governing body said: "As part of the most robust and comprehensive bidding process in the history of the Fifa Women's World Cup, Fifa will now conduct a thorough evaluation process, including on-site inspection visits."
Those visits are due to get under way in February, after which Fifa will publish its findings in a bid evaluation report in May.
The United States hosted the tournament in 1999 and 2003, but not as a joint bid, while Germany hosted it in 2011.
The US, Mexico and Canada will co-host the men's World Cup in 2026.
