Kolkata: Watching a match during the Under-17 FIFA World Cup, first ever in India, would cost the fans less than Rs 100, Tournament Director Javier Ceppi said yesterday.
"It would be economical and definitely less than going to a movie, definitely less than watching other leagues. The idea is, you can watch a World Cup match in less than Rs 100," Ceppi revealed yesterday.
However, he did not reveal the exact price of the tickets which would be launched mid-May.
"We need to treat this as our first World Cup. It's is our first time to prove ourselves and push ourselves. We cannot use the past benchmarks or in other tournaments. Different countries have different realities," Ceppi added.
