How does the draw for the Women’s World Cup work?

A total of 32 teams will be drawn into eight groups of four after the draw.

Prior to the draw, teams will be allocated to pots based on their October 13 FIFA rankings.

Pot 1 is reserved for hosts Australia and New Zealand and the top six nations.

Each pot is then filled based on descending rankings, with three wildcard spots being seeded into Pot 4 to represent teams hoping to qualify via the playoffs.

A team from each pot then forms each of the eight groups.

However, each group can only have one team from each confederation, with the exception of Europe, which can have two teams in a group.
