AIFF working with FIFA to finalise new dates for Women’s U-17 WC

April 11, 2020



All India Football Federation is in discussion with the world body (FIFA) to retain the original age criteria of the participating players and finalise new dates for the U-17 Women’s World Cup, AIFF president Praful Patel said today. The Under-17 Women’s World Cup, which was scheduled to be held in India in November, was postponed by FIFA last week due to the Covid-19 pandemic. “We are also in discussions with FIFA to keep the age criteria of U-17 Women’s World Cup the same as originally planned, so that all the players who have been working very hard to prepare for the tournament do not miss an opportunity to play due to the postponement,” Patel wrote on his Twitter handle.
