England were the only country to submit a bid to host the tournament before the deadline and the formalities were finalised today.
They had to meet strict guidelines from European football's governing body but have done just that.
The final is expected to be held at Wembley with Brighton's Amex Stadium and Manchester City's Academy Stadium among the proposed venues.
Speaking before the bid, FA chief executive Martin Glenn said: "Our bid to host Uefa Women's Euro 2021 reflects our strong commitment to supporting and growing women's and girl's football in England.

"And the opportunity to bring the tournament to England would represent a landmark moment for women's football in this country."
It will be the 13th edition of the Women's Euros and the second time England are the host nation.
Netherlands are the defending champions after they won the Euros for the first time in their own back yard last year, beating Denmark 4-2 in the final.
