India’s U-17 World Cup games may shift to Delhi

FIFA is set to shift India’s Under-17 World Cup matches from Mumbai to New Delhi as the apex soccer body has taken the host government’s request “very seriously”.

The All India Football Federation (AIFF) initially wanted Mumbai to host India’s home matches but later asked FIFA to shift them to Delhi due to pressure from the sports ministry as it felt the national capital should host the home team’s games.
