The 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup will kick off in New Zealand on May 30th and conclude on June 20th. This is the first time New Zealand has hosted the event. There will be 52 matches played across Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Hamilton, New Plymouth, Wellington, and Whangarei. France won the last U-20 World Cup but they failed to reach the finals of the UEFA qualifying tournament so they won’t be able to defend their title. Find out who will win the title this time around.

The origins of the FIFA U-20 World Cup date back to 1977. Since then, the tournament is held every two years. Requirements for the tournament state that a player may be no more than 20 years old. Though the tournament covers many teams from around the world, only 36 teams have made it to the finals since the start. Of those teams, only 9 teams have won the tournament.
If you guessed that one of the dominant FIFA U-20 World Cup teams was Brazil, you would be correct. Brazil has been in every tournament except for 1979 and 2013. Though they may not have as many wins as Argentina, Brazil has played in the final game 9 times. Between the two countries, they have won the tournament a combined total of 11 times. Other teams that have won the tournament are Portugal, Serbia (once as Yugoslavia), Ghana, Spain, Russia (as the USSR), Germany (as West Germany), and France. As you can see, the list of teams that have won is not long.
A total of 24 teams qualified for the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup. They will all have a chance to play in the group stage beginning on May 30th. The winners and runners-up inside of each group along with the best four third-placed teams will make it through to the round of 16. From that point on the teams will be in the knockout stage. You can expect the action to really heat up from the round of 16 on June 11th to the final match on June 20th.
