FIFA representatives inspected the proposed facilities in the country last year amidst strong criticism from a section

of the country’s socio-political commentators and analysts. The matches would have been staged in Lagos, Benin

City, Asaba and Uyo.


“We would like to thank the Costa Rican and Panamanian football associations for their commitment

towards women’s football and the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in particular. We are looking forward

to a fantastic competition in August,” Fifa’s Chief Tournaments and Events Officer Colin Smith


“After the highly successful FIFA Women’s World Cup in France this year, it is important that we build on

the momentum at all levels of the game. The U20WWC in Costa Rica and Panama next year is a perfect

opportunity for us to continue driving the popularity of the game and with it being the first jointly hosted

tournament – we can make the impact even greater,” Sarai Bareman, Fifa’s Chief Women’s Football

Officer added.
