The iconic Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata has been chosen as the venue for the final of the FIFA U-17 World Cup, which will be held in India from October 6-28.
The decision was taken on Monday after a FIFA delegation completed a week-long inspection of the six venues.
While ‘the city of joy’ gets rights to host the final showdown, Navi Mumbai and Guwahati earn semi-finals. Quarter-finals will be held in Goa, Guwahati, Kochi and Kolkata. Opening matches will be played in Navi Mumbai and New Delhi.
The draw for the main tournament will be held in Navi Mumbai on July 7.
