The 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup (Spanish: Copa Mundial Sub-20 de la FIFA Colombia 2011) is the eighteenth edition of the U-20 World Cup since its inception in 1977 as the FIFA World Youth Championship. Games will be played between 29 July and 20 August 2011.

At the executive committee meeting held in Sydney, Colombia beat the only other candidate Venezuela when it was announced on the 26th of May 2008.[1] It was suggested by the then Vice President, Francisco Santos Calderón, that it was needed to withdraw from the race with Brazil to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup so they could concentrate on hosting the best possible games.[2]

In an inspection tour of development works in March 2010, Jack Warner, (then vice president of FIFA), said that the completion of this tournament could provide Colombia with a launch pad to become a possible host for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.[3]

Organization

In late 2009 the Colombian Football Federation unveiled the budget for conducting the event, to be COP 150 billion.[4] (USD 75 million aprox.) On 30 September 2009, the presidents of both FIFA and Colombia announced that the logo would show a steaming cup of coffee with the colors of the Colombian tricolor.[5]

The tickets have been sold very well. One month before the tournament is starting, 600.000 tickets have been already sold.[6].All the matches that are going to be played in Bogota, including the final and semi final are already soldout. [7][8] [9]
