FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017: Carles Puyol to visit India for ticketing launch

The main activity in which the illustrious defender will be involved is the launch of ticket sales. The first set of tickets for the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 will go live on May 16th at exactly 19:11 hours paying tribute to the year in which Indian football made history. It was the first time that an Indian football team, Mohun Bagan AC, won the IFA shield by defeating an English team, East Yorkshire Regiment.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup and the 2008 and 2012 European Championship winner will grace multiple events between 15 and 17 May to promote the Tournament both in New Delhi and Mumbai.
Welcoming Puyol, FIFA and the LOC said, “It is very exciting to have a champion like Carles Puyol in India. He is an extremely well known player in the country and his presence will excite all football lovers to get involved with the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017. We hope that it can give a massive boost to the promotion of the Tournament and that fans can relate very positively with him.”
Anticipating what will be his first visit to India, Carles Puyol added, “I’m very excited and curious to discover the country and its people. I’m really drawn to the culture of India, its traditional medicine, its food and, of course, the way football is developing there, which is one of the main reasons behind my visit.”
Talking about the ticket launch, he said, “I would tell them that the experience of seeing a match live is completely different from watching it on television. You can feel the intensity and energy when you’re there in person. And at this tournament, you can see the stars of the future. I’m sure that those who attend will remember it and get hooked by the sport.”
The tickets for the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 will go live on FIFA.com on 16th May and the start of the sales will be done in conjunction with the live programming of the official broadcasters – SONY Networks.
