JAKARTA:The world's football governing body, FIFA, will select four of the ten Indonesian sports stadiums prepared for the 2021 U-20 World Cup in the country, an Indonesian minister said (Jan 18).

Indonesia has been granted the right to host the 2021 FIFA U-20 World Cup and has prepared the ten sports stadiums in the country's capital of Jakarta and the provinces of West Java, South Sumatra, Yogyakarta and Bali, according to the Youth and Sports Ministry.

Indonesian Youth and Sports Minister Zainuddin Amali said that the decision would be made next Saturday.

"On Jan 25, FIFA will determine four stadiums and their locations," he said.

Should FIFA need improvement on the stadiums after the selection, Minister Zainuddin stated that the government was ready for that.

On the number of the stadiums to be chosen, he added, the government would negotiate with FIFA on the possibility of additional venues.

The government actually prefers six stadiums to facilitate the world-class championship on the reason that more provinces or areas in the vast-archipelagic country will be able to enjoy the event.

President Joko Widodo has ordered authorities to well prepare the international championship next year, which is expected to help promote Indonesia to the world, local media reported on Saturday.

In last September, a FIFA delegation made surveys on five out of the ten stadiums, according to the ministry. - Xinhua
