UEFA cancels U-17 qualifiers; England, Germany & Spain to play at 2021 U-17 Women’s World Cup – India!

England, Germany and Spain without having to play the UEFA Women’s U-17 Championship will represent Europe at the 2021 U-17 Women’s World Cup in India next year.

UEFA has been forced to cancel the elite round and the final tournament of the UEFA Women’s U-17 Championship in Sweden due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic after consultation with its 55 member associations besides also cancelling all other youth competitions for 2020.

UEFA has decided that the three European nations with the highest coefficient ranking in England, Germany and Spain (in alphabetical order) will qualify for the 2021 U-17 Women’s World Cup in India which is scheduled to be held from February 17 to March 7, 2021.

But given the pandemic situation it is not clear if the 2021 U-17 Women’s World Cup will be played early next year.
