The FIFA U-17 World Cup will be India's first ever FIFA tournament organised in a country, where football is gradually taking center stage. In a cricket-crazy nation like ours, the beautiful game may have taken time to come alive but all signs point to a jubilant beginning as one of the most important global events in international football makes its debut in the sub-continent.

India's addition to the list of 24 pedigreed countries in the sport comes as a massive boost to the country's growing football reputation and following the success of competitions like the Indian Super League, this is certainly the next step in making the country qualify for the senior World Cup.

India won the bid to host the 2017 tournament ahead of countries such as Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Ireland, thus securing the rights to the prestigious tournament over some able competitors. Among the venues ready to host matches at the event are Kolkata's famous Salt Lake Stadium which packs in a maximum of 85,000 people at a go and is scheduled to host the final of the World Cup.

The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi is also set to welcome the World's top teenagers and goes by a capacity in excess of 58,000 people at a time. In addition to these two major cities, Kochi, Navi Mumbai, Guwahati, and Madgaon are also ready to play host later this year.

The stadiums are expected to be jam-packed when the tournament gets underway and while it remains to be seen how the Indian side will fare in their games, we are sure to be in for some exciting footballing action in our own backyard.
