The most prominent competition in women's football is the FIFA Women's World Cup. The FIFA senior women's national teams, the sport's international governing organization, compete in it. Since its first iteration in China in 1991, the event has been staged every four years. The United States won the most recent World Cup, which was held in France in 2019. The Americans defeated the Netherlands 2-0 to earn their second straight and fourth overall championship.

The World Cup trophy represents success and triumph for the athletes who hoist it. It is a 47 cm tall, 4.6-kilogram sterling silver trophy with gold plating. Two people are shown supporting the Earth in the image. In 1998, William Sawaya and Milanese artisans Sawaya & Moroni created the trophy by hand. It took the place of the first trophy, which was given to the United States permanently following their third victory in 2015.

Only four nations—the United States (four times), Germany (twice), Japan, and Norway (one each)—have so far taken home the World Cup. Therefore, the trophy has only ever been held by athletes from these nations. The five athletes with the most World Cup championships are as follows:
