The Mexico women's national football team represents Mexico in international women's football competition and is controlled by the Mexican Football Federation. In the 1970s, the team gained popularity, with Mexico finishing 3rd in a unofficial Women's World Cup held in Italy. Also, in 1971, the team hosted a unofficial women's World Cup reaching the final, only to lose to Denmark 3-0. A estimated 110,000 people attended the final at Estadio Azteca that day.[1] The team again is re-gaining popularity, as the U-20 team finished in the quarter-finals in the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup and a notable 1-0 win over England in which the game was broadcasted live in the country. The team was the host for the 2010 CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup, finishing in Second Place after a shock 2-1 victory over The United States. The team has a professional league, the Super Liga Femenil de Futbol, which was established partially to raise the popularity of women's football in Mexico.
