FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup

The FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup is a world championship football tournament, organized by FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association), for national teams of women under age 20. The tournament is held in even-numbered years. It was first conducted in 2002 as the FIFA U-19 Women's World Championship with an upper age limit of 19. In 2006, the age limit was raised to the current 20. The event was renamed as a World Cup effective with the upcoming 2008 competition, making its name consistent with FIFA's other worldwide competitions for national teams.

The next tournament will be the 2008 edition, to be held in Chile from November 20 to December 7 2008. [cite web|url= http://www.fifa.com/u20womenworldcup/index.html |title=FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup Chile 2008 |publisher=FIFA |accessdate=2007-11-26]
