The Draw for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Colombia 2024™ will take place in Bogotá on Wednesday, 5 June and can be followed live on FIFA+. The event will take place at Hall 74 Centro de Eventos in the Colombian capital and start at 10:00 local time. The draw will define the group-stage matchups and subsequent pathways at the tournament’s 11th edition, the first to feature 24 teams, up from the 16 at previous tournaments.

The presenters will be Andrea Guerrero of RCN and Marina Granziera from the Caracol network, while the host of the draw will be Jaime Yarza, FIFA Director of Tournaments.

Yarza will be assisted by two greats of women’s football, former USA international Lindsay Tarpley and Colombia’s Natalia Gaitán. Tarpley captained and scored the trophy-winning goal for the USA at the FIFA U-19 Women’s World Championship in 2002, the first women’s youth tournament organised by FIFA, which is now considered the inaugural edition of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup™.

Gaitán, who is still playing, is an icon of the women’s game in Colombia. As well as representing her country at the 2010 edition of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Germany, she played in two instalments of the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ and two Women’s Olympic Football Tournaments, serving as team captain on each occasion.
