Less than a month after the final whistle is blown in Moscow at Russia 2018, focus shifts to the women's game. With the picturesque region of Brittany set to host this year's FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, the tournament will begin in Vannes on Sunday 5 August, with the final to be played at the same venue on Friday 24 August.
Fans keen to learn the fate of the qualified teams will also need to note down Thursday 8 March, the date on which the draw will be held to split the 16 teams into four groups.
South America has not hosted a global women's youth finals for a decade, since Chile played host to the U-20 Women's World Cup in 2008, and so fans of women's football across the world will be turning a keen eye to Uruguay later in the year. The tournament will begin on Tuesday 13 November, and conclude on Saturday 1 December.
When all the teams are known, the draw will take place in Zurich on Wednesday 30 May.
