The 2018 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup was the ninth time they held this international football championship for young women's teams. The tournament happens every two years, and it involves teams of players under the age of 20 from different countries who are part of FIFA. The event took place in Brittany, France, from 5th to 24th August 2018.[2] This was the same place where they would later host the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup. Haiti and the Netherlands participated in the U-20 Women's World Cup for the first time. North Korea was the previous champion, but they were knocked out by France in the quarter-finals. In the final match, which was played at Stade de la Rabine in Vannes, Spain and Japan faced each other again after already playing in the group stage. Japan won the game 3–1 and became the champions for the first time.
