The 1983 FIFA World Youth Championship, the fourth edition of the FIFA World Youth Championship, was held in Mexico from June 2 to June 19, 1983. The tournament took place in seven venues — Guadalajara, Irapuato, León, Mexico City, Monterrey, Puebla and Toluca — where a total of 32 matches were played. The winner was Brazil, who beat Argentina by 1–0, in a final held at Mexico City's Azteca Stadium.

This edition still holds the record for average (36,099) attendances of the tournament's history. For many this edition was a kind of proof to Mexico to test the capacity to hold a FIFA competition after the designation from FIFA in May for holding the 1986 FIFA World Cup.

Notes

  1. ^ The FIFA states "Russia" here, which is an anachronism.
  2. ^ RSSSF indicates the goal as a penalty, and scored at 31' instead of 39'. See http://www.rsssf.com/tablesw/wyc83.html.
