FICCI are conducting an International Convention on Football Business on 13 & 14 February in New Delhi and here's what will be discussed in the third session..
The third session will be a panel discussion on the topic - "How India prepares for the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup."
On December 5, 2017, FIFA awarded India the opportunity to host the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup. This was an exciting day for anyone associated with the industry as hosting any age category FIFA World Cup is one of the most prestigious privileges a country could strive for. One of the major benefits of India hosting this tournament will be a direct entry for its U-17 team to compete in the competition – the first time any India team will participate in a FIFA World Cup.
During this session, key technical staff representing the Indian football industry will share their plans on how India can best prepare its youth to ensure a strong showing during the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup.
