The FIFA team inspects the DY Patil stadium, expresses satisfaction with the progress of the preparations
Mumbai, December 1 () A team of officials from the governing body of FIFA world football inspected Sunday DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, one of the proposed places to host the U-17 Women's World Cup next year, and expressed their satisfaction for the progress of preparations.
The FIFA project leader for the tournament, Oliver Vogt, said he was satisfied with the state of the facilities at the stadium.
The existing infrastructure is good. What is also very important for us is that we have a very experienced and operationally strong team here that has already hosted a FIFA World Cup. It is natural to want to do better every time, and that is what we would like to do to make sure we can offer the best experience for all teams, he said.
The director of the LOC tournament, Roma Khanna, was happy with the preparations and said: After a stellar launch of the emblem in the state, we are happy to be at Navi Mumbai and the DY Patil stadium. The place is already well versed with the requirements to organize a FIFA tournament and we only need some minor adjustments to improve from 2017.
Women's football is already popular in Maharashtra, so it is very important to see it promoted even more, especially in Navi Mumbai and Mumbai.
Navi Mumbai was the final place to be inspected by the FIFA-LOC delegation. The next official FIFA inspection is scheduled for next year to determine the progress of pending work and the operational planning of the tournament. The FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup will take place from November 2 to 21 next year. PDS PDS PDS
