We have had over 200,000 people in Delhi who have had the opportunity to see the FIFA U-17 World Cup. This is a massive promotional push and we’ve done it in a space that is extremely significant.

“India Gate is a landmark that resonates well because it honors heroes of India and we feel that people have responded quite nicely to it. They are very excited to see the Trophy. They’re also very excited that the tournament is coming, and now, with the ticket sales going well, they need to pick up tickets or else they might miss the chance to see India play.” New Delhi will host India’s group stage matches.
