2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup

Last updated on 20 October 2017

The 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup is the 17th FIFA U-17 World Cup, a biennial international football tournament contested by men's under-17 national teams. Organized by FIFA, the tournament is taking place in India between 6 and 28 October 2017, after the country was awarded the hosting rights on 5 December 2013. The tournament marks the first time India have hosted a FIFA tournament and the first Asian hosted U-17 World Cup since 2013.

The matches are being played in 6 stadiums in six host cities around the country, with the final taking place at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata, West Bengal. Twenty-three teams, besides the host India, managed to qualify for the tournament via participating in their various continental under-17 tournaments. In the first round of the tournament finals, the teams will compete in round-robin groups of four teams for points, with the top two teams in each group proceeding while the top four third placed teams will also advance. These 16 teams will advance to the knockout stage, where three rounds of play will decide which teams would participate in the final.

The reigning FIFA U-17 World Cup champions, Nigeria, will not have the opportunity to defend their title after failing to qualify for this edition. In failing to qualify, Nigeria became the first incumbent title holder since Switzerland in 2009 to fail to qualify for the subsequent edition.

Host selection

The bids for the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup had to be submitted by 15 November 2013.[1] On 28 May 2013 it was announced by FIFA that Azerbaijan, India, Republic of Ireland, and Uzbekistan would bid for the hosting rights.[2]

Finally, on 5 December 2013, FIFA announced that India had won the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup hosting rights.[3]

Qualified teams

As host, India made their first ever appearence at the FIFA U-17 World Cup and their first appearence in the World Cup at any age level.[4] As well as India, New Caledonia and Niger will also be making their first appearances in the FIFA U-17 World Cup.[5]

The previous U-17 World Cup title holders, Nigeria, failed to qualify for this edition. In failing to qualify, Nigeria became the first nation since Switzerland in 2009 to fail to qualify for the next edition of the FIFA U-17 World Cup after winning the previous edition.[6]

A total of 24 teams qualified for the final tournament. In addition to India, the other 23 teams qualified from six separate continental competitions. Starting from 2017, the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) will receive an additional spot (in total two spots), while UEFA will have five instead of six spots.[7]

Organization

Preparation

The six venues selected for the tournament were given major renovations prior to the FIFA U-17 World Cup.[8] All the stadiums were given new bucket seats, new dressing rooms, new evacuation exits for fans, and new training grounds.[8] Javier Ceppi, the Local Organising Committee director, stated that despite work starting slowly, things eventually became quicker. "It has been a long process in the last two and half years. In India, it takes time to start things but once things start it kind of picks its own pace and in terms of implementation I always say that India is a very good country when it comes to implementation."[9]

Emblem

The official emblem for the tournament was launched on 27 September 2016 at a hotel in Goa during the 2016 AFC U-16 Championship.[10] According to the press release from FIFA the emblem was designed "as a celebration of the country’s richness and diversity of cultures, with the main elements of the Indian Ocean, the banyan tree, the kite and the starburst, which is an interpretation of the Ashoka Chakra, an integral part of the national identity."[10]

Tickets

Sales of tickets for the FIFA U-17 World Cup began on 16 May 2017 during a function in Delhi. Carles Puyol was present during the ticket sales launch as special guest.[11] General ticket sales officially began on 17 May 2017 at 19:11. The time was selected as a tribute to when Mohun Bagan defeated East Yorkshire Regiment in the IFA Shield in 1911, marking the first time an Indian football club defeated a British side in British India.[11] Tickets for the tournament were sold in four phases: Phase one only sold tickets for categories 1 to 3 at each venue with a 60% discount while phase two allowed people to buy tickets for all categories, but only if you are a Visa card holder, at a 50% discount. Phase three allowed anyone to buy tickets with a 25% discount while phase four had tickets at full price.[12] The attendance for matches breached the million mark in the final match of the Round of 16 of 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup, which made India has become only the third nation after China and Mexico to register an attendance of over a million for the event.[13] India could beat the existing record of 1,230,976 set in the very first 1985 FIFA U-16 World Championship edition in China.

Venues

After being awarded the hosting rights for the FIFA U-17 World Cup, eight locations were shortlisted: Bengaluru, Delhi, Goa, Guwahati, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Pune.[14] On 29 May 2015, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Goa, and Pune were provisionally selected as host locations.[15] On 27 October 2016, FIFA officially announced Delhi, Goa, Guwahati, Kochi, Kolkata, and Navi Mumbai as the official host cities for the FIFA U-17 World Cup.[16]

Draw

The draw for the FIFA U-17 World Cup was held on 7 July 2017 in Mumbai.[19] The draw was attended by former U-17 World Cup champions Nwankwo Kanu (Nigeria) and Esteban Cambiasso (Argentina), as well as India senior international Sunil Chhetri and badminton player P. V. Sindhu.[19]

The 24 teams were drawn into six groups of four teams, with hosts India being allocated to position A1.[20] The rest of the teams were allocated into their respective pots based on a ranking which was built according to past performances during the last five FIFA U-17 World Cups.[20] Importance was given to the most recent U-17 World Cups.[20]
