Dear players and parents,
We know there is nothing more important than your health and that of our families. As the world faces a pandemic that affects us all, the Danone Nations Cup's top priority is to protect the health and safety of all participants: players, parents, supporters, employees, volunteers and partners.
In coordination with the relevant local and global authorities, and in accordance with the recommendations and regulations of the World Health Organization, we regret having to cancel - for the first time in 20 years - the planned Danone Nations Cup world final in Jakarta, Indonesia in October 2020, which also includes, at the local level, the selection process and the Canadian final.
The event will return in legendary fashion in 2021, which will be attended by even more young players from around the world, and we hope to see you participate. We share your disappointment and thank you for your patience and your collaboration.
