Following successful trials at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup and 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup, FIFA approved the vanishing spray to be used by the tournament referees to mark the ten-yard line for the defending team during a free kick.
Each team named a 23-man squad (three of whom must be goalkeepers) by the FIFA deadline of 29 November 2013. Injury replacements were allowed until 24 hours before the team's first match.
A total of 31 nationalities were represented in the squads of the seven teams.
The draw was held on 9 October 2013 at 19:00 WEST (UTC+1), at the La Mamounia Hotel in Marrakesh, to decide the "positions" in the bracket for the three teams which entered the quarter-finals (champions of AFC, CAF, and CONCACAF).
If a match was tied after normal playing time:
- For elimination matches, extra time was played. If still tied after extra time, a penalty shoot-out was held to determine the winner.
- For the matches for fifth place and third place, no extra time was played, and a penalty shoot-out was held to determine the winner.
