India hosted the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in 2017 and was all set to host the FIFA U-17 Girl’s World Cup as well in November 2020, but unfortunately, was postponed due to the ongoing Coronavirus threat. India was also awarded the hosting rights of the AFC Women’s Asian Cup in 2022.

India had entered the race for hosting the Asian Cup 2023 but backed off later on. India has never hosted the Asian Cup and would be hoping to do so in 2027.
