FIFA has canceled the Under-17 and Under-20 World Cups scheduled for next year due to the pandemic.
The next editions are now due to be staged in 2023, with Indonesia still hosting the U20s and Peru the U17s.
“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to present challenges for the hosting of international sporting events and to have a restrictive effect on international travel,” FIFA said in a statement.
“FIFA would like to express its gratitude to the host member associations, as well as the authorities in Indonesia and Peru, for their commitment and the tournament preparations made so far.”
