Sub-17 World Cup trophy handed to Chile

The trophy of the Sub-17 World Cup was officially handed to Chile on August 18 in Santiago, before the event is held later this year in the South American country.

The cup was presented by President of the National Association of Professional Football (ANFP) Sergio Jadue to President of Chile Michelle Bachelet.

The trophy will be displayed in a tour of eight host cities during the next 40 days, including Santiago.

Chile is one of the few countries in the world that has been privileged to hold the competition.

It just hosted the Copa America in June 2015, demonstrating its supreme organizational capacity of football tournaments.
