The 2008 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup was held in Chile between November 19 and December 7, 2008.[1] Sixteen teams, comprising representatives from all six confederations, took part in the final competition, in which Chile had a guaranteed place as the host nation.[2]

Contents

Background

On September 15, 2006 FIFA officially announced Chile as the host country. It was the third time Chile organized a football world cup, after the 1962 FIFA World Cup and the 1987 FIFA World Youth Championship, but the first in the women's competition. The decision came as a surprise to Chile, as it had bid in August 2006 to host the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, which was finally granted to New Zealand (Ecuador was unsuccessful in both bids). Chile previously hosted the South American Under 20 Women's Championship and the first edition for Under 17s in January 2008.

Venues

Four different cities were selected as venues in an open bidding process. Changes to the stadiums to comply with FIFA standards were carried out between December 2007 and September 2008.[3][4] The selected venues are:
