COSTA DO SAUIPE, Brazil, Dec. 5 (Yonhap) – South Korea was selected as the host of the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup here on Thursday.

In a vote held during FIFA’s Executive Committee meeting in Brazil, South Korea edged out Azerbaijan for the right to host the world’s premier youth football tournament.

Koreans have yet to decide on a city to hold the event, but they did narrow it down to ten cities – including Seoul, Busan, Ulsan, Jeju, and Suwon.
