    Costa Rica to host Women's U-17 World Cup

    ZURICH, Switzerland - Costa Rica will host the 2014 Women's U-17 World Cup, winning out over Ghana, Macedonia, Russia, United Arab Emirates and Uzbekistan.

    The FIFA Executive Committee announced its decision Thursday following its two-day meeting that also allocated berths for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

    "We are excited to host the FIFA Women's U-17 World Cup in 2014," Costa Rican Football Federation President Eduardo Li said. "It's an important project that will allow us, I'm convinced, to develop women's football in Costa Rica and also in Central America. "

    It is the second time the tournament will be played in the CONCACAF region, following Trinidad & Tobago staging the second edition of the quadrennial championship in 2010.
