The women’s Under-17 World Cup, due to be held in India in November, has been postponed by three month, FIFA said Tuesday.
The tournament, to be played in five cities across the country, will now start February 17, 2021.
“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 announcement.
FIFA also unveiled new dates for this year’s U-20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica and Panama. It will now be played from January 20 to February 6, 2021.
The 2020 FIFA Futsal World Cup in Lithuania has been pushed forward to September 12 next year.
