Costa Rica to host U-20 FIFA World Cup in 2022

May 20, 2021

Costa Rica will host the U-20 Women’s World Cup in August 2022, FIFA announced Thursday.

The 16-team soccer tournament will be held across the Central American country from August 10-28, 2022, the dates approved by the FIFA Council.

At the time, Costa Rica expressed its willingness to “host the entire tournament,” as indicated by the Costa Rican Organizing Committee.

“Costa Rica has the organization, human resources, sports infrastructure, logistics, technology and accommodation to serve with excellence all the delegations and other activities that the World Cup demands,” the Costa Rican Soccer Federation said.

While most details about the 2022 World Cup remain to-be-determined, Costa Rica had planned to use the National Stadium and Alejandro Morera Soto Stadium in Alajuela as the primary venues in 2020.

As hosts, Costa Rica will also earn an automatic classification to the tournament.
