FIFA has received a record nine expressions of interest in hosting the Women’s World Cup in 2023 with a joint effort from North and South Korea among them.
Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Japan, New Zealand and South Africa have also formally declared their interest.
Those member associations have been sent overview and bidding registration documents and will have until April 16 to submit their bidding registration to FIFA.
Bid books are due to be submitted by October 4.
The expression of interest from North and South Korea marks the latest show of sporting diplomacy and cooperation between the two countries, which are still technically at war after conflict ended in armistice rather than a peace treaty.
They are set to jointly bid for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games and officials from the nations presented their idea to the International Olympic Committee at a meeting last month.
It follows softening of tensions after last year's Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, where North and South Korean athletes took part in a joint march at the Opening Ceremony.
They also competed in a combined women's ice hockey team.
Further demonstrations of cooperation have occurred at events such as last year's Asian Games, while talk of joint teams in several sports at Tokyo 2020 Olympics remain ongoing.
FIFA has agreed to make public its vote on the host for the 2023 Women's World Cup.
The world governing body said following a meeting in Miami that after its 37-person Council makes a decision in March 2020, the "result of each ballot and related votes of each member" will be "open and made public".
When United States, Canada and Mexico were last year chosen to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup for men, the votes by the FIFA Congress of all member associations were published.
Before that, decisions were taken in secret by the FIFA Executive Committee, renamed the FIFA Council in 2016.
Concerns had been raised last month that this would apply to the 2023 Women’s World Cup, but that has not turned out to be the case.
"In line with the principles outlined in the overview document available on FIFA.com and with the bidding for the FIFA World Cup 2026, FIFA will implement a fair and transparent process, which will include a clear evaluation model as well as a concrete commitment to sustainability and human rights," a FIFA statement read.
"All bid books will be published in full on FIFA.com in October 2019.
"Based on the FIFA Statutes, the FIFA Council will appoint the host of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023.
"As communicated in the overview document and confirmed by the FIFA Council at its recent meeting in Miami, the result of each ballot and the related votes by the members of the FIFA Council will be open and made public."
The first edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup was held in China in 1991.
This year’s event is due to take place in France from June 7 to July 7.
United States will be hoping to defend their title having beaten Japan 5-2 in the 2015 final, held in Canada.
