FIFA U17 World Cup Success
A total of 1.347 million people attended the games, making it the biggest Under-17 World Cup tournament in history, overtaking the first-ever youth competition in China in 1985. India is now lobbying FIFA to let it host the 2019 Under-20 World Cup.
FIFA lauded India for delivering a hugely successful Under-17 World Cup, both in terms of quality of football as well as organisation, and said that the country seems capable of hosting bigger global tournaments in the future.
