The 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup will be the 18th edition of the FIFA U-17 World Cup, the biennial international men's youth football championship contested by the under-17 national teams of the member associations of FIFA, to be hosted in Brazil.

Originally, it was determined that Peru would have hosted it between 5 and 27 October 2019,[1] however, in was announced in February 2019 that they would no longer host the tournament, following inspection of the facilities and concern over organisational challenges.[2] A formal announcement on 15 March 2019 ratified the recommendation to move the tournament to Brazil.[3]

England are the defending champions.

Host selection[edit]

The bidding process to host the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup and the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup was launched by FIFA in June 2017.[4] A member association may bid for both tournaments, but they would be awarded to different hosts.[5]

Original round of bidding[edit]

Two countries publicly declared their formal bids to host the tournament.

  •  Peru[6]
  •  Rwanda[7] (withdrawn)

On 8 March 2018, Rwanda withdrew its bid to host the tournament due to time and logistic aspects.[8] FIFA then unanimously announced Peru as the host country after the FIFA Council meeting on 16 March 2018 in Bogotá, Colombia.[1]

Second round of bidding[edit]

On 22 February 2019, FIFA announced that the tournament would be moved to a yet-to-be-determined host after inspection visits found issues with the prepared infrastructure and organisation in Peru.[2][9] On the same day, FIFA Secretary-General Fatma Samoura sent a letter to the Brazilian Football Confederation to determine if the tournament could be held on that country, and the answer was positive. CONMEBOL reinforced the idea by claiming that, because of the preparation for the 2019 Copa América, which is scheduled to start in less than four months, Brazil would be the only one able to make the commitment in such a short time. With the change of venue, the tournament may be delayed by one month. Brazil was confirmed as the new host by the FIFA Council on 15 March 2019.[10][3]

Qualified teams[edit]

Currently a total of 24 teams qualify for the final tournament. Brazil as host team along with 23 other teams qualify from six separate continental competitions. The slot allocation was approved by the FIFA Council on 10 June 2018.[11]

Notes
  1. ^ The Solomon Islands, which originally finished second in the 2018 OFC U-16 Championship, were found by the OFC to have deliberately fielded overage player Chris Satu during the tournament. As a result, they had forfeited all results and their place in the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup. The OFC Executive Committee will meet to decide on their replacement.[12]
