An eight-member FIFA inspection team on Wednesday expressed happiness at the state of infrastructure at the Salt Lake Stadium, one of the venues for the 2020 U-17 Women’s World Cup.

“The stadium has already hosted a FIFA World Cup (U-17) so the core infrastructure is in place. It is great to see that the legacy from 2017 — the infrastructure is in good shape, and that the same operational plan is being used,” the Local Organising Committee (LOC) of U-17 Women’s World Cup said in a statement.

“With new technology and new innovation in sport, it is also important to keep improving. We want to ensure that we provide the best possible facilities and environment for the 2020 U-17 Women's World Cup.”

The FIFA and LOC delegation, led by project head Oliver Vogt, will next inspect the venue in Guwahati on Thursday.

The FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup India 2020 will be held in India from November 2 to 21.
