The 1989 FIFA U-16 World Championship, the third edition of the tournament, was held in the Scottish cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Motherwell, Aberdeen, and Dundee between 10 June and 24 June 1989. Players born after 1 August 1972 could participate in this tournament. Saudi Arabia won the tournament and became the first Asian team to win a FIFA tournament. As of November 2019, they also became the only Asian men's team to win any FIFA tournament.

The winning team was later accused of fielding several over-age players, but no formal investigation was conducted.[1][2]
