With 504 of the world’s best young players set to grace the FIFA U-20 World Cup Korea Republic 2017, the tournament presents a stunning opportunity to see stars of the future.
While fans will be flocking to the stadiums across the host nation between 20 May and 11 June, there is also the chance for scouts to take advantage of the abundance of talent on show.
Those representing a FIFA Member Associations or affiliated club are eligible for tickets to take in the action on offer, with each able to register up to two representatives for the tournament. Tickets are provided on a first-come, first-served basis and available to registered individuals up to 48 hours prior to kick off.
Interested parties looking to be included in the scout ticketing programme should contact FIFAScouts@fifa.org with a formal request on official club or association letter-headed stationary included in the form of a scanned letter.
Approved candidates will then be given access to register on to the programme. Scouts registered in the programme will receive match tickets only, not official tournament accreditation, and individuals not representing a member association or affiliated club are unfortunately not eligible for tickets.
