India to host 2020 Under-17 Women's World Cup

Fifa President Gianni Infantino at the council meeting in Miami that approved working with Qatar to explore expanding the 2022 World Cup

UEFA, European football's governing body, is unlikely to fight Infantino's plans at Friday's council, with the proposal expected to be passed on to a further meeting ahead of June's congress.

Infantino said five members of the Council did not attend the meeting, the first for FIFA's leadership in the US since American law enforcement arrested numerous sport's top officials in 2015 on corruption charges.

India will host the U-17 Women's World Cup in 2020, FIFA President Gianni Infantino announced on Friday.

The World Cup will, in any case, grow to 48 teams for the 2026 edition which will be held jointly in the United States, Mexico and Canada.

The new tournament would be projected to include three teams from Concacaf, although available information does not indicate how teams would qualify.

The Club World Cup fills the slot previously reserved for the Confederations Cup, which had served as a test event in a host nation a year before the World Cup.

Federation Internationale de Football Association is on a major collision course with European governing bodies after pressing ahead with money-spinning plots to increase the size of the Qatar World Cup and introduce a revamped global club tournament.

The changes to the Club World Cup will see the introduction of a 24-team competition, rather than the existing seven, which would be likely to feature eight clubs from Europe.

An ECA spokesman told AFP: "ECA clubs will not participate in the Club World Cup in 2021 and will assess participation in the Club World Cup in 2024".

But he has been forced to drop the Nations League plan before Friday's meeting of the FIFA Council in Miami, after his own task force said there is no space for such a tournament in the worldwide calendar.

The ECA executive board letter said it was "against any potential approval of a revised CWC at this point in time and confirm that no ECA Clubs would take part to such competition". "If it doesn't happen - fantastic also".

The revamped FIFA Club World Cup will be played during the worldwide match calendar slot that corresponded to the FIFA Confederations Cup.

"But it was our responsibility to take a decision because we have to deal with the organisational matters - it is only two years away". The ECA had no immediate comment after the decision.

The women's under-17 World Cup has 16 nations and Das had said that they can host matches at "just four cities".

Infantino also provided an update on organization of the upcoming Women's World Cup, saying that the preparations were going well.
