FIFA has confirmed that the city of Kangar, in northern Malaysia, will replace Ipoh as one of the six venues for the World Youth Championship for the Coca-Cola Cup.

The change of venue became necessary because of difficulties with the quality of the pitch in Ipoh.

Kangar will host the matches of Group E (including Hungary, Cup-holders Argentina, Australia and Canada), as well as a second round match on Thursday 26 June.

In another change due to international television requirements, the second round match in Johor Bahru on Thursday 26 June will now kick-off at 17.15 local time, and not 20.30.
