The popularity of women’s football has been increasing in recent years, and it continues to gain support throughout the world. FIFA has been promoting this season with this in mind and, as a result, viewing figures and interest in the 2011 Women’s World Cup may exceed that seen for previous events.

The event will take place in the new Rudolf Harbig Stadium in Dresden, which was subject to a complete rebuild in 2009. It had previously stood for over a century, and the renovation and redevelopment has brought it up to standard using modern building techniques. The home club, Dynamo Dresden, will see hundreds of the world’s best athletes and players use their facilities during the tournament. The stadium has a capacity of over 25,000 people meaning that a massive number of fans will have the opportunity to witness the event first hand.

The FIFA Women's World Cup 2011 Organising Committee chose the site whilst it was still in the process of being rebuilt. Dresden has built a reputation for hosting football, and the FIFA Under-Twenties Women’s World Cup was recently held there successfully.

There are a wide range of Dresden hotels that are suitable for individuals coming to town for the event, many of which are centrally located and which feature prices that will fit all budgets.
