The draw for the FIFA U20 World Cup, happening in Argentina, is scheduled to take place on Friday, April 21 at the FIFA headquarters in Zurich.
Initially, Indonesia was chosen as the host nation for the U20 World Cup, but FIFA stopped Indonesia from hosting the event after the country’s football federation (PSSI) said it had cancelled the draw because the governor of the island of Bali refused to host the Israel team.
The FIFA U-20 World Cup will take place from May 20 to June 11, 2023.
