FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in 2020 after missing

Updated: few hours ago

Despite having their bid for the men’s FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2019 rejected by FIFA, the All India Football Federation (AIFF) is keen on hosting another World Cup in the near future after last year’s successful FIFA U-17 World Cup.

 

This is why AIFF, the governing body for football in India, has indicated to FIFA that they would like to host the next edition of the U-20 Women’s World Cup in 2020, according to a report in The Times of India.

 

“We are examining the possibility of bidding for the U-20 Women’s World Cup in 2020. If you look at the FIFA U-17 World Cup, it gave such a fillip for the game in the country, and we expect the (U-20) Women’s World Cup to do the same for women’s football,” AIFF General Secretary Kushal Das told The Times.
