Tickets for historic FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Colombia 2024™ matches on sale

The draw for the 11th edition of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup™ was made in Bogotá on Wednesday, with Hall 74 Centro de Eventos in the Colombian capital providing a fitting stage as the participating nations discovered the group-stage matchups and subsequent pathways at the tournament.

For the first time, 24 nations will compete in the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, with the tournament’s 52 matches to be played across four stadiums in three Host Cities – Bogotá, Cali and Medellín – from 31 August to 22 September.

The draw, which was hosted by FIFA’s Director of Tournaments, Jaime Yarza, with the assistance of two greats of women’s football, former USA international Lindsay Tarpley and Colombia’s Natalia Gaitán, served up six exciting groups.

Among the highlights, host nation Colombia were drawn in Group A alongside Australia, Cameroon and Mexico.

Gaitán said Group A would intrigue fans across Colombia: “I think it’s a good group and I hope professor Paniagua [Colombia coach Carlos Paniagua] thinks the same. It will be a great opening game against Australia, we have a debutant in the group [Cameroon] and Mexico has done very well in recent years, so it’s very interesting.”

Meanwhile, Spain will commence their title defence in Group C. The European nation – who won the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ in Australia and New Zealand just a year after their nation triumphed at the last edition of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, staged in Costa Rica in 2022 – will feature in a group containing USA, Paraguay and Morocco.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino delivered a video message to the guests and media representatives present at the draw.

“I cannot think of a more appropriate host than Colombia for this competition, a country that will host a FIFA women’s tournament for the very first time and will provide a perfect setting for this very exciting event.

“I witnessed the colour and passion of the Colombian fans many times, not least during the FIFA Women’s World Cup just last year, especially during the quarter-final in Sydney, when it felt as if Colombia were playing at home. I can only imagine what the atmosphere is going to be [like] in the Host Cities of Bogotá, Cali and Medellín, as well as all around the country,” said Infantino.
