Sarai Bareman, Fifa Chief Women’s Football Officer, said: “As we look to build on the incredible success of last year’s Fifa Women’s World Cup in France, as well as the legacy left by the Fifa U-17 World Cup in 2017, the Fifa U-17 Women’s World Cup in India provides an exciting opportunity, not just for the development of women’s football, but for fans across India and worldwide to watch the next superstars of the women’s game."
