“Yesterday we received information from FIFA, in the notification it stated that the draw in Bali had been canceled by FIFA. So this is the information we got from FIFA. Indeed we have not received an official letter from FIFA, but the message is clear because of the rejection from the governor of Bali. who rejected the Israeli team so that the draw itself could not be held without all the participants,” said Arya.
In the drawing, a total of 24 countries from the six confederations will be drawn in the group stage. The U-20 Indonesian National Team is in Pot 1 because it is the host.
The U-20 World Cup itself is planned to be held in Indonesia from 20 May to 11 June 2023.
