India to host FIFA Under-17 Women's World Cup in 2020

International Football Federation (FIFA) President Gianni Infantino announced that India will host the U-17 Women’s World Cup in 2020.

The tournament in India will be the seventh edition.

By virtue of being the host country, India will take part in the tournament for the first time in its history.

This will be the second FIFA tournament India will be hosting, after the U-17 Men’s World Cup in 2017.

The U-17 women’s tournament began in 2008, when New Zealand hosted it. Spain are the current champions.
