FIFA Adjourns Women’s Under-17 World Cup To 2021
The women’s Under-17 World Cup, which is due to be taken place in India in November, has been adjourned for three month, FIFA said Tuesday, adding to a growing list of sporting events hit by the Corona Virus escalation.
*The tournament, to be played in five cities across the country, will now start February 17, football’s governing body said.*
India is looking to uplifet its international status as a host of top sporting events after holding the men’s Under-17 World Cup in 2017.
“All the host cities have put in a lot of effort and commitment so far, and we are happy that the new dates will allow them to make up for the lost time and provide momentum going forward,” the local organising committee said after the FIFA declaration.
FIFA also disclosed new dates for this year’s U-20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica and Panama. It will now take place from January 20 to February 6, 2021.
