The first two events were 12-nation tournaments, and in 1999 the event became a 16-nation competition, and expanded to 24 teams for the 2015 event in Canada.

United States hosted both the 1999 and 2003 events, won by USA and Germany respectively. The 2007 event was held in China, and was won by Germany. The United States have won the competition four times (1991, 1999, 2015, 2019).

The next World Cup for Women will be held in Australia & New Zealand in 2023.
