Croatia to Host UEFA European U17 Championship in 2017

BallotaThe UEFA Executive Committee have announced today that the 2017 UEFA European U17 Championship will be staged in Croatia…

The tournament will be the first men’s UEFA youth tournament to be held in Croatia. The last UEFA tournament played in Croatia was the 2008/09 finals of Europe’s top amateur competition, the UEFA Regions’ Cup. Croatia last figured in the U17 finals in 2013, while their most successful campaign to date took them to the semi-finals in 2005 where they lost to Turkey. That side featured future senior internationals Ivan Kelava, Milan Badelj, Dejan Lovren and Nikola Kalinić. (photo / “Poljud panorama 2” by Ballota – Wikimedia Commons)
