It is indeed a noteworthy achievement for India that the Under-17 World Cup is being held in our country for the first time ever.

A historic moment for Football fans, as well, all over India. Our honourable Prime Minister too attended the historic opening match between India and USA.

But, we are after all a Cricket-crazy country and tend to ignore other sports. This habit, it seems, has taken a toll on the underway U-17 World Cup.

In the opening games, India gave away 27,000 free tickets for the opening games held at New Delhi. The event was to be attended by Narendra Modi. This move was taken in order to avoid embarrassment of vacant stands.

The event was attended by thousands of school children and is India’s first major sporting event post-the widely criticized Commonwealth games.

Officials state that the sale of tickets so far has been disappointing in spite of the presence of huge-draws such as Brazil, Germany & Spain.

Moreover, FIFA Officials have already expressed their fears of exposing foreign players to toxic levels of pollution in India. In order to guarantee a pollution-free environment, the Supreme court has ordered to take up all the necessary steps to curb pollution levels in the cities where the tournament is being held, namely Delhi, Goa, Mumbai, Guwahati, Kochi and Kolkata.

It is to be seen if the rest of the tournament proceeds smoothly without any major hiccups, but with overwhelming crowd-support.
