Thailand is preparing to bid for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup as the country is highly capable and equipped with proper facilities, says the President of the Football Association of Thailand.

Worawi Makudi, president of the Football Association of Thailand has revealed that it is time for Thailand to place its bid to host the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup competition.

Thailand is highly capable, and possesses many stadiums in Bangkok and other provinces that are ready to serve the international competition, Worawi said.

This initiative will have to be further discussed with Tourism Minister Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, and with the government prior to placing the bid, in compliance with designated regulations.
