Emblem and slogan

The emblem and slogan ("Una fiesta en nuestra cancha", a party on our pitch) of the tournament was unveiled on 7 October 2014.[13]

Each team named a squad of 21 players (three of whom must be goalkeepers) by the FIFA deadline.[14] The squads were announced on 8 October 2015.[15][16]

All players of its representative team must have been born on or after 1 January 1998.

Group stage

The winners and runners-up of each group and the best four third-placed teams advance to the round of 16.[14] The rankings of teams in each group are determined as follows:

  1. points obtained in all group matches;
  2. goal difference in all group matches;
  3. number of goals scored in all group matches;

If two or more teams are equal on the basis of the above three criteria, their rankings are determined as follows:

  1. points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned;
  2. goal difference in the group matches between the teams concerned;
  3. number of goals scored in the group matches between the teams concerned;
  4. fair play points (first yellow card: minus 1 point; second yellow/indirect red card: minus 3 points; direct red card: minus 3 points; yellow card & direct red card: minus 4 points);
  5. drawing of lots by the FIFA Organising Committee.

FIFA Fair Play Award
 Ecuador

In December 2015, Nigerian Samuel Chukwueze was retroactively awarded the Bronze boot award. Kelechi Nwakali had erroneously been awarded the award immediately following the tournament but as he had played more minutes (630) than Chukwueze (535) in the tournament the award was re-allocated.[19]
