10 Clubs With the Most Players Going to the 2019 Womens World Cup in France

Atletico Madrid, Juventus, LSK Kvinner, Orlando Pride, Portland Thorns, Reign FC and Wolfsburg have eight players going to the World Cup, but the following all have nine or more...


*Clubs are determined by where a player is under contract at the time the World Cup begins and therefore transfers for the 2019/20 season that have been announced early are not counted.


Paris Saint-Germain - 9 players

Although still registered as ​Arsenal players for a few more weeks, the Gunners will actually lose Dutch pair Sari van Veenendaal and Dominique Bloodworth this summer. However, the club has also already struck a deal to sign fellow Netherlands star Jill Roord for next season.


NTV Beleza - 10 players

Yui Hasegawa

Jill Roord has already agreed to leave ​Bayern before the start of next season to join Arsenal, while Sara Dabritz has a deal in place to move to France and join Paris Saint-Germain.

There will be 11 players from the city of Incheon's Hyundai Steel Red Angels at the World Cup this summer, with only one of them not from South Korea - Brazilian forward Beatriz.


Manchester City - 12 players

Steph Houghton

Janine Beckie (Canada), Karen Bardsley (England), Keira Walsh (England), Steph Houghton (England) pictured, Nikita Parris (England), Jill Scott (England), Demi Stokes (England), Abbie McManus (England), Georgia Stanway (England), Jennifer Beattie (Scotland), Caroline Weir (Scotland), Claire Emslie (Scotland)

​Manchester City have already confirmed the arrival of England's Ellen White from Birmingham ahead of next season, although they will be losing fellow Lionesses players Nikita Parris, who will be joining Lyon, and Abbie McManus who is moving to Manchester United.


Chelsea - 12 players

Erin Cuthbert

Millie Bright (England), Fran Kirby (England), Carly Telford (England), Karen Carney (England), Ji So-yun (South Korea), Ali Riley (New Zealand), Maria Thorisdottir (Norway), Maren Mjelde (Norway), Erin Cuthbert (Scotland) pictured, Hedvig Lindahl (Sweden), Jonna Andersson (Sweden), Magdalena Eriksson (Sweden)

Goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl has just finished her final season with ​Chelsea and won't return to the club after the World Cup. Karen Carney is going to her fourth finals with England, while Scotland's Erin Cuthbert has all the potential to be a tournament breakout star.


Lyon - 14 players

FBL-EUR-C1-WOMEN-LYON-BARCELONA

Sole Jaimes (Argentina), Kadeisha Buchanan (Canada), Lucy Bronze (England), Wendie Renard (France), Amandine Henry (France), Eugenie Le Sommer (France), Amel Majri (France), Sarah Bouhaddi (France), Griedge Mbock Bathy (France), Delphine Cascarino (France), Carolin Simon (Germany), Dzsenifer Marozsan (Germany) pictured, Saki Kumagai (Japan), Shanice van de Sanden (Netherlands)

It is perhaps little surprise that Lyon, a club that has won six ​Champions League titles in the last nine seasons should be sending more than a full XI to the World Cup. But their most famous name, Ada Hegerberg, won't be there as a result of international retirement due to ongoing protest.


Barcelona - 15 players

​Barcelona are becoming a growing force in European club football and no other team on the planet is sending more players to this summer's Women's World Cup than the Spanish giants. Those players are not just Spanish, but from a mixture of nations across multiple continents.
