The Black Maidens will face Japan in the opening Group D match at the Prince Mohammed International Stadium in Al Zarqa on October 1 before taking on USA and Paraguay in subsequent group matches in Amman and Irbid respectively.

The national U-17 female team qualified to their 5th straight World Cup appearance after a 10-0 aggregate win over Morocco in the final qualifying match.

The Black Maidens who were quarterfinalists at the last edition of the competition, are the only African side to have reached the semi-finals of the World Cup after winning bronze in 2013.
