The tournament will be played at Villa Maria del Triunfo Softball Stadium, a site of the Lima 2019 Pan American Games.
 
The inaugural WBSC U-18 Women’s Softball World Cup had been originally set to take place in 2020. As a result of the one-year delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all players who would have been eligible to participate in the 2020 edition will still be able to play in December.
 
The new WBSC U-18 Women's Softball World Cup will replace the U-19 Softball World Cup. The United States are the three-time defending U-19 Women's Softball World Champions.
