Football Fifa U17 World Cup


India's first association with a FIFA event will not only be by making their debut but also by hosting a big event. The "sleeping giant" of football will finally try to come good on the promise by hosting the U17 World Cup and hoping the fans cheer the team to a strong finish. The 17th edition of the tournament will be played across six venues - Kochi, Goa, Navi Mumbai, New Delhi, Guwahati, and Kolkata. The tournament is scheduled to begin on October 6 with the final on October 28 to be held at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata. Defending champions Nigeria won't be able to fight for the crown after failing to qualify for the tournament. Draw to categorise the 24 qualifying teams will be held on July 7 in Mumbai.
