    The draw for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Dominican Republic 2024™ took place in Santo Domingo, the country’s capital, on Saturday 22 June. During the event, held at the Fray Anton de Montesinos Monument, the 16 competing teams learned the identity of their group-stage opponents and their potential route to the final.

The eighth edition of the tournament will comprise 32 matches in total, which will be played from 16 October to 3 November in two host cities, Santo Domingo itself and Santiago de los Caballeros.

The draw for the four groups was overseen by FIFA Director of Tournaments Jaime Yarza, accompanied by two elite athletes; Dominican athlete and mountaineer Thais Herrera and the Canada-born Mexico youth international Tatiana Flores.

The hosts will make their debut in the competition on 16 October against Ecuador in Santiago de los Caballeros, with New Zealand and Nigeria completing Group A.

Herrera, the first Dominican woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest, had a special message for her compatriots taking part in the World Cup. She said: “I am the living example that you can achieve your dreams. So, keep up the good work. I am looking forward to seeing those amazing games.”

Reigning champions Spain, meanwhile, will kick off their campaign in Group B, in which they will face USA, Korea Republic and Colombia, runners-up last time around.

“The advice to all the players that will participate here is to be confident and go live your dream. ¡Y Buena suerte!” said Flores, who took part in this tournament two years ago in India.

The match schedule for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup will be communicated in due course.
