Football Fever

  • Sunday, 13th Nov
  • 10:30 am - 11:30 am IST
  • St Pauls Institute, Title Waves

Football in India generates the same kind of fever and fervour as it does all over the world.   It also has tremendous potential as an agent of change – fighting poverty by offering real opportunities for economic inclusion.  How then can we leverage this passion and potential, bring together institutional partners, and public and private stakeholders, to position India to take its rightful place in the world football order?  This session gives us an insight into India’s football ecosystem and presents a roadmap to bring about a much desired paradigm shift for the game in India.
