In 2023, the world tournament was expanded to 20 teams for the first time, with Japan becoming the champion, a nation that beat Mexico in the Semifinal and then dispatched the United States in the defining match.

Mexico, like 15 other nations, has already secured its place for the sixth edition of the contest thanks to finishing first in its group in the last edition.

In 2025, the qualifying stages will be played, in which countries such as Germany, Argentina, Brazil, China, Chinese Taipei, Colombia, Spain, France, Nicaragua, New Zealand, Pakistan and South Africa will seek the four available tickets.
