Chief Minister Eknath Shinde launches FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup India 2022™ Host City Logo of Maharashtra

The Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Eknath Shinde, on Wednesday, 21st September, launched the official Host City Logo of the state for the upcoming FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup India 2022™ in the presence of the Minister of Sports and Youth Welfare, Shri Girish Mahajan, LOC Project Director Nandini Arora and other respected dignitaries.  

The FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup India 2022™, scheduled to be held between 11th October and 30th October across Odisha, Goa and Maharashtra, will be the first FIFA women’s competition to be held in India and the state’s DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai will host the third-place and the Final match of the biennial youth competition.

Expressing his delight at the launch event, Shri Eknath Shinde said, “I am really excited to launch official the Host City Logo of Navi Mumbai for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup India 2022™. It will be fantastic to watch the matches at the DY Patil Stadium. The prestigious tournament will see the best players from 16 countries and this is an important tournament. I would like to wish the best of luck to the participating teams, players and staff.”  

Maharashtra has been home to multiple big-ticket events over the years including the first-ever FIFA competition hosted by India, the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2017. Thus, alongside Goa, Maharashtra is set to become one among only two states in India to host two FIFA tournaments. DY Patil Stadium also hosted the AFC Women’s Asian Cup earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Shri Girish Mahajan said, “Maharashtra has always rolled out the red carpet for major sporting events and the state is readying itself once again to host an international tournament. October 2022 promises to be an exciting month as youth players from the best 16 nations will be visiting India in a bid to be crowned champions.

“Navi Mumbai has some really exciting games, including two quarterfinal matches and, of course, the final. This is a great opportunity for football fans to come witness a historic moment as a FIFA winners’ trophy will be lifted for the first time on Maharashtra’s soil.”  

 Project Director of the Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the tournament Nandini Arora also conveyed her sentiments of gratitude, while encouraging the people to visit the DY Patil Stadium to watch the games live.
