Blatter Says Japan Could Host 2019 Women's World Cup

Blatter says Japan could host 2019 Women's World CupFIFA president Sepp Blatter said on Friday that Japan could host the 2019 Women's World Cup even though the country will stage the Rugby World Cup the same year.

The 2019 Rugby World Cup will be played in Japan from Sept. 6 to Oct. 20 and Blatter said the country could hold the women's tournament beforehand.

Blatter said "Japan would be a good candidate or contender. They are a little bit afraid because they have the Rugby World Cup in the same year but the sports are totally different."
