New Delhi: The All India Football Federation submitted an expression of interest to host the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2019.
India will be hosting the FIFA U-17 World Cup from October 6-28 at six different venues.
“With India hosting the U-17 tournament, we feel hosting the U-20 event would be the best way to sustain the footballing momentum in the country. We would be happy to discuss with FIFA about the possibility of hosting it in 2019,” AIFF said on their website.
England won their first FIFA U-20 title, beating Venezuela 1-0 in the final in South Korea early this year.
