CLICK TO KNOW WHAT TWO INDIANS DID FOR FIFA

FIFA fever is back with a bang and this time it has some new teams too. India too has some crazy football fans which can do anything for the game called love. One guy from a south Indian state Kerala decided to pedal all the way to Russia to witness match live in action. Clifin Francis, a 28 years old mathematician from Kerela left on 23rd Feb and his first stop was Dubai. On March 13 this year he started his voyage from Iran and reached Russia on June 5 and now he's on his way to the Moscow city to witness the match. In a telephonic Interview with an English daily he said; “I love cycling and football. I used to pedal to the coaching center and once cycled from Kochi to Kanyakumari. I decided to cycle to Russia to join the biggest soccer party. So far it has been a great journey, enjoying the places, cuisine, cultures, and making friends with people,” In another part of India, a man did something really unexpected. He built a screening hall for live streaming of all the FIFA matches. Putul Borah, a resident of Diphu town in Assam spent about 15 lacks to construct this auditorium. To construct this auditorium he took the loan from a local bank. The huge 1,800 ft auditorium is located in the front yard of his home to host football fans in his village. This 53 years old man is a die-hard fan of the German team and he approached the bank to fulfill his dream. The auditorium has the seating capacity of 500. The auditorium hopes to recreate a stadium atmosphere. After all, there is no fun in enjoying a thrilling match alone, right? In an interview with The Telegraph he said; “I took a bank loan of Rs 15 lakh for construction of the ‘symbolic stadium’. A 56-inch LCD monitor has been installed where all football fans can witness the highs and lows of the World Cup together,” In a tribute to his favorite team, the auditorium was named as ‘German Stadium’ and has been adorned with flags of all the 32 teams participating teams.
