WOMEN

After several unofficial tournaments, such as Coppa del Mondo 1970 (Italy); Mundial 1971 (Mexico); series of Women's Mundialito's 1982-1988 (Italy); Women's World Invitation Tournament 1987 (Taiwan); and finally FIFA's Women's Invitation Tournament 1988 (China), FIFA started a World Cup tournament for women in 1991. The 4th edition, to be played in China, had to change its site due to the SARS.
