Rio de Janeiro - In the midst of preparing for next year's World Cup and the 2016
Olympics, Brazil could also be in line to hold the women's World Cup as
early as 2019, Supersport.com reports.
Brazilian Sports Minister Aldo Rebelo told reporters he's already talked with Fifa President Sepp Blatter about the idea.
"I proposed the idea," Rebelo said at the launch of a new Brazilian
women's league on Monday. "I think other countries are interested in
holding the event. We'll have to look at the calendar. If we don't get
it for 2019, then we'll have to look at another year (2023)."
