The International Football Federation (FIFA) has canceled Peru’s hosting rights for the 2023 FIFA U-17 World Cup. FIFA, which recently stripped Indonesia of its U-20 World Cup hosting rights, is now forced to decide on new venues for its two World Cups scheduled for this year.
FIFA officially announced on its website on the 4th (Korean time) that it would revoke the 2023 FIFA U-17 World Cup hosting rights held by Peru after lengthy discussions with the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF). The tournament schedule was not changed from November 10th to December 2nd this year, and FIFA was put in a situation where it had to select a new venue. 메이저사이트
The decision was reportedly made because Peru’s infrastructure for the Games did not meet the rules. In the meantime, FIFA and FPF have prepared for the tournament in a friendly relationship, but both sides made this decision because they judged that they would not be able to fully prepare the facilities for the remaining time.
FIFA recently revoked Indonesia’s right to host the U-20 World Cup. When Indonesia decided to advance to the World Cup, FIFA withdrew Indonesia’s right to host the World Cup when risks were detected, such as threats from Islamic forces to the Israeli players.
However, the cancellation of the U-17 World Cup venue was decided due to the host country’s lack of preparation, and the background is different from that of Indonesia.
