The 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup will be the 22nd edition of the FIFA U-20 World Cup, the biennial international men's youth football championship contested by the under-20 national teams of the member associations of FIFA, since its inception in 1977 as the FIFA World Youth Championship. The tournament will be hosted by Poland between 23 May and 15 June 2019.[2][1] It will mark the first time Poland have hosted a FIFA tournament and the first in Europe since 2013 in Turkey. Poland hosted the UEFA football events in the past including the UEFA Euro 2012 which co-hosted with Ukraine and the 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship.

England won the previous tournament but will not defend their title after losing 3–0 to Norway in a play-off for the final qualifying place at the 2018 UEFA European Under-19 Championship in Finland. England are the sixth consecutive champions to have failed to qualify for the subsequent U-20 World Cup.

The opening and final will take place at the Stadion Widzewa in Łódź.

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.[3] A member association may bid for both tournaments, but they would be awarded to different hosts. [4]

Candidate countries[edit]

Two countries submitted formal bids to host the tournament.

FIFA announced Poland as the successful hosts after the FIFA Council meeting on 16 March 2018 in Bogotá, Colombia.[2] Poland won the bid over India a 9–5 voting result by 4 votes.

Qualified teams[edit]

Currently a total of 24 teams qualify for the final tournament, In addition to Poland who qualifies automatically as hosts, 23 other teams qualify from six separate continental competitions. The slot allocation was approved by the FIFA Council on 10 June 2018.[7]
