World football governing body, FIFA has postponed the women's Under-17 World Cup, which was scheduled to hold in India in November. 







It's now happening in February 2021, adding to a growing list of sporting events hit by the Coronavirus pandemic.

The tournament, to be played in five cities across the country, will now start February 17, football's governing body said.

"All the host cities have put in a lot of effort and commitment so far, and we are happy that the new dates will allow them to make up for the lost time and provide momentum going forward," the local organising committee said after the FIFA announcement.

FIFA also unveiled new dates for this year's U-20 Women's World Cup in Costa Rica and Panama. It will now be played from January 20 to February 6, 2021.
