AIFF & LOC Statement on the postponement of 2020 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup – India!

FIFA yesterday, April 3 announced that it has decided to postpone the 2020 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

The All India Football Federation and Local Organising Committee are supportive of the decision by FIFA to postpone the 2020 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup. We agree that this has been made with the highest regard for public health, and the participating teams, host cities, staff and visiting fans, and keeps the best interests of everyone in mind. We were, of course, looking forward to hosting the Tournament in November this year, but at the same time, we are mindful of all those around the world and in our country potentially impacted by our decisions. For us at the moment, the primary concern is the health and wellbeing of every stakeholder involved in the Tournament. We don’t want to take any risk that is detrimental to our community before it is clear that there is no threat to people’s health due to this pandemic.

The LOC and AIFF will work with FIFA to determine the most suitable dates for the Tournament. We look forward to hosting a successful Tournament in the near future.
