Coppa del Mondo (Women) 1970

The tournament was held in Italy, known as the "Coppa del Mondo femminile Trofeo Martini & Rossi" (after the trophy supplied by the main sponsors). Matches were played over 2x35 minutes.
Organized by FIEFF (Federazione Internazionale Europea di Football Femminile), not affiliated to FIFA.

An initial announcement (reported 28-2-70) listed the eight participating teams as Argentina, Denmark, France, and Italy (Group A), Brazil, Czechoslovakia, England, and USSR (Group B).
By 12-5-70 these had been revised to include Austria, Mexico, and Switzerland instead of Argentina, Brazil, and USSR, with West Germany and Sweden listed as reserves in case of withdrawals. France later withdrew and were replaced by West Germany.
