The U-17 Women’s World Cup will be held in India from October 11 to 30 next year, the FIFA Council announced on Thursday.
India was previously scheduled to host the U-17 FIFA World Cup in 2020, but was postponed to 2021 before being canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The governing body then handed over the hosting rights to the 2022 edition to India last November.
On the eve of the 71st FIFA Congress, the FIFA Council approved key dates for international match calendars, including the dates of the 2022 World Cup in India.
“The Council also approved dates for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup India 2022 (11-30 October 2022), the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Costa Rica 2022 (10-28 August 2022), as well as 14 playoff teams for The FIFA Arab Cup 2021, which takes place between June 19 and 25 this year, “the governing body said in a statement.
The FIFA Council also approved the dates of the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand from 20 July to 20 August 2023.
“The new playoff tournament for the Women’s World Cup 2023 will be held from 17 to 23 February 2023.”
