Argentina to host 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup19 April 2023
Argentina will host the Under-20 Football World Cup, world governing body FIFA said on Monday following the decision to strip Indonesia of the right to stage the tournament.
FIFA announced the decision to remove Indonesia as host on March 29 after the country's FA canceled the draw to be held in Bali as its governor refused to host Israel's team.
The Argentine Football Association (AFA) formally submitted its bid to host the May 20-June 11 tournament one day later at the South American Football Confederation Congress.
"I would like to thank the AFA, its President Claudio Tapia, as well as the governmental authorities, for their commitment to hosting this magnificent event at such short notice," FIFA President Gianni Infantino said.
