FIFA U20 WORLD CUP FIFA Confirms Colombia Host Cities For 2024 U20 WWC

The Colombian cities of Cali, Medellín, and the capital Bogotá will be the focus of the football world later this year when they host the newly expanded FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup™ between 31 August and 22 September 2024.

In line with FIFA’s strategic objective to give the national teams of FIFA’s 211 Member Associations more opportunities to compete on the global stage, the 2024 tournament will be the first to feature 24 teams, a significant increase on the 16 nations that contested previous editions.

The qualified teams will play in four stadiums – Metropolitano de Techo Stadium and Nemesio Camacho El Campín Stadium, both in Bogotá, Medellín’s Atanasio Girardot Stadium, and the Pascual Guerrero Stadium in Cali – across the three host cities as Colombia welcomes a FIFA tournament for the third time.

They will become only the second CONMEBOL host nation of the women’s U-20 global competition after Chile in 2008.

All three cities were previously involved when Colombia staged its first FIFA tournament, the men’s version of the U-20 competition, in 2011, with three of the four stadiums (excluding Metropolitano de Techo Stadium) staging games.

Cali and Medellín were also hosts when the FIFA Futsal World Cup™ came to the South American country in 2016.

Hosting the tournament, which launched the international careers of the likes of Marta, Alex Morgan, Asisat Oshoala, Alex Popp, Megan Rapinoe, and Christine Sinclair, will give further impetus to the vibrant growth of women’s football in Colombia.
