Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday urged the nation to support the efforts to host a successful U-17 football World Cup later this year. In a statement, the PM spoke about how the competition can spark a monumental change in the country. 

“India is going to host the U-17 World Cup in 2017, but successful hosting of the event alone cannot be our final objective. U-17 World Cup India 2017 must be a catalyst for change, the tipping point for football in the country, which can only be done by creating a mass movement around it. The objective is to give an opportunity to every child in the country to play football,” Modi said.
