South Korea has submitted a lone bid to host the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup without North Korea.
The [South] Korea Football Association said on Wednesday that it submitted the bid as a sole host to meet the bidding deadline on Tuesday.
"We initially considered making a joint bid with North Korea, but we were not able to properly discuss it with the North," a KFA official said Wednesday. "But we will continue to work to engage the North for the event."
The host of the event will be announced in March next year.
