The 2008 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup was the 4th edition of the tournament. It 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]

Background[edit]

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 Football Championship and the first edition for Under 17s in January 2008.

Venues[edit]

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 were:
