Zurich-Switzerland, June 01, 2012: Statistical, The first confederation to stage an age-group tournament for women was UEFA in 1997 with the European Women’s U-19 Championship. In a move to further promote the women’s game, FIFA followed suit with its own competition for young women. As was FIFA’s intention, the event has encouraged member associations to develop women’s football at youth level and to set up teams in younger age groups, including the U-13 and U-15 brackets. Moreover, the championship has also prompted the confederations to organise continental qualifying competitions.
