It will be the first time the biannual football championship for players aged under 20 takes place in Poland.
“We’re happy about the FIFA decision,” Zbigniew Boniek, head of the Polish Football Association (PZPN), told the Łączy Nas Piłka website.
“It’s a token of great trust, vested in us by the largest football organisation in the world,” Boniek said.
“Following the UEFA Euro 2012 championships, the UEFA European U-21 in 2017, and the UEFA Europa League Final in 2015 it’s time for another test that we -- the federation and Poland in general -- will pass,” he added.
The Polish Football Association said that more details about the organisation of the tournament would be provided at a press conference on Monday. (aba/pk)
