The session will involve discussions over the Under-17 World Cup to India seeing the benefits that a country gets when it hosts a FIFA World Cup, which is the premier football property in the world. It serves as the perfect platform for countries to come together to celebrate the beautiful game and for the host nation to leverage the power of football to build its own economy and football landscape.
