May 15 – FIFA has turned up the promotion for the hastily re-organised U-20 World Cup whose hosting was moved at the last minute from Indonesia to Argentina.
The 24-team event kicks off May 20 with the final on June 11.
The tournament will open on 20 May with four matches on the opening day in San Juan and Santiago del Estero, including hosts Argentina taking on Uzbekistan in Santiago del Estero Stadium.
The 52 matches will be played across four host cities: La Plata, Mendoza, San Juan, and Santiago del Estero. It will be the first time this tournament will be held in South America since Colombia 2011.
Category 1 tickets are now on sale.
FIFA has also launched the Official Song of the tournament. Titled ‘Glorious’, it was written by Indonesian electronic trio Weird Genius, and performed together with young Indonesian superstars Lyodra, Tiara Andini, and Ziva Magnolya. The song will serve as the anthemic backdrop to the tournament.
