India hosted the men's edition in Bhubaneswar last year, but have never hosted an women's World Cup.

While India and Germany have bid for both men's and women's World Cups, Malaysia and Spain have bid for the men's tournament.

  • "FIH is glad to have received such strong bids. This confirms how appealing our events are. We're looking forward to two great FIH World Cups, both men's and women's, and a lot of excitement for players and fans," International Hockey Federation (FIH) chief executive officer (CEO) Thierry Weil said in a statement.

The FIH will examine the bids before the Executive Board takes a decision in June 2019 on hosts of both the events.
