Descendent of Shibdas Bhaduri, captain of the 1911 Mohun Bagan team to be handed over the first ticket of the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 

FIFA Legend and World Cup Winner with Spain, Carles Puyol will be in India to promote the ticket sales for the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017.

The tickets will go live at exactly 19:11 hrs on 16th May paying tribute to the year in which Indian football made history. It was the first time that an Indian football team, Mohun Bagan AC, defeated an English team, East Yorkshire Regiment, and won the IFA Shield.

It is apt therefore, that the Local Organising Committee of the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 decide to have someone with connection to the path-breaking team receive the first ticket of the first FIFA event India will host. A day before, on 15th May, Gouri Bhaduri, grand daughter-in-law of Shibdas Bhaduri, captain of the historic 1911 team will be handed over the first ticket by Carles Puyol and Hon’ble Minister of State (I/C) for Youth Affairs and Sports, Shri Vijay Goel. The ceremonial ticket would allow her family to attend any of the matches that take place across the six host cities.

Project Director of the Local Organising Committee for the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017, Joy Bhattacharjya said, “On the most significant moment in Indian football, it is amazing to remember where the journey started – with Mohun Bagan’s historic win in 1911. This is the start of what we would like to believe – the second revolution in Indian Football”.

The FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 will kick off on October 6th.
