XtraTime We Desk: After successfully hosting the U-17 Men’s World Cup in 2017 another feather on India’s cap as it will host the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in 2020.

“We are delighted to announce that India has been confirmed as the host of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in 2020,” posted All India Football Federation on their official twitter handle.

By virtue of being the hosts, India’s U-17 women’s football team will be part of the World Cup. This will be only the second time that India will play in a FIFA World Cup.

The last time India played in a World Cup was the U-17 Men’s World Cup, where also India qualified by virtue of being the hosts.

India had hosted the U-17 World Cup in 2017 successfully and all of the national team’s games were held in New Delhi at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, where they had an average attendance of 50,000.

The final of that tournament was held at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata, where England defeated Spain to lift the U-17 Men’s World Cup.
