Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's coverage of the FIFA Council Meeting to be held at the conference in Bogota, Colombia as the world football governing body decides the hosts for the FIFA U-20 World Cup scheduled in 2019.
...
After hosting the FIFA U17 World Cup last year, India may be all set to host yet another major FIFA tournament – the U20 World Cup in 2019. 
 
FIFA is set to hold a conference in Bogota, Colombia in the wee hours of Saturday morning (IST). In the conference, the world’s apex football governing body is set to decide which country will host the mega event in 2019. 
 
Currently, India and Poland are the two frontrunners to host 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup. Also on FIFA’s agenda in the conference are the plans for the 2026 World Cup. 
 
Incidentally, although India is one of the two frontrunners to land the U20 World Cup, rumours have been doing the rounds that India may not land the tournament. 
 
The main reason for that is that FIFA wants to hold the tournament in June, when the temperatures are sky-high, making it difficult for the players.
