Starting in Berlin's Olympic Stadium and ending in Frankfurt's FIFA Women's World Cup Stadium, the event will feature events in Augsburg, Berlin, Bochum and Dresden, in addition to Leverkusen, Mönchengladbach, Sinsehim and Wolfsburg.

Other qualifying teams hail from Africa's Guinea, Nigeria, Japan and Korea, Europe's England, Germany, Sweden, France and Norway; North America, including Canada and Mexico; and South America's Brazil and Colombia.
