The 2021 Women's Baseball World Cup would have been the ninth edition of the WBSC Women's Baseball World Cup, the biennial international women's baseball world championship tournament. The competition was planned to be held in Tijuana, Mexico in late 2021, with dates to be announced.[1] The competition was originally to be held in Monterrey, Mexico[2] from 11 to 20 September 2020, and was initially rescheduled to be held in Tijuana from 1 to 9 March 2021, but was postponed both times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3][4] The tournament was cancelled altogether in October 2021.[5]

Three national teams, hosts Mexico, France and the Philippines were supposed to make their debut in the tournament.[6]
