The play-off draw for the FIFA Women’s World Cup™, which took place in Nyon, Switzerland, is as follows:
- 1. Netherlands v Denmark
- 2. Belgium v Switzerland
- Final: Netherlands/Denmark v Belgium/Switzerland
The two-legged semi-finals will be played between 1 and 9 October, while the final, which will also be decided over two legs, will take place between 5 and 13 November. The draw also decided the order in which the games will be played.
The aforementioned quartet were the four best second-placed teams from the seven groups in the qualifying phase (Wales just missed out), which afforded direct finals’ berths to England, Germany, Italy, Norway, Scotland, Sweden and Spain. France qualified as hosts.
