The 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup is the first ever women's football U-17 World Cup in FIFA history. It was held in New Zealand from 28 October to 16 November 2008. It is the officially recognized world championship for women's under-17 national football teams. This was the first women's world youth championship organized by FIFA with the age limit of 17.

Host cities[edit]

Matches were played in four New Zealand cities:

  • The Auckland conurbation, New Zealand's largest metropolitan area, hosted the final and 3rd place playoff. The designated host stadium is located in North Shore City.
  • Hamilton hosted two of the quarter-finals.
  • Wellington, New Zealand's capital city, hosted two of the quarter-finals.
  • Christchurch, the only host city in the South Island, hosted the semi-finals.

Pool matches were spread evenly among these cities. The host nation, New Zealand, was based mostly in Auckland but played one pool match in Wellington.
