India and Football

When will India reach the FIFA world cup finals???

An often repeated question in most of the Indian minds for a few decades now. Once in four years, we Indians invariably end up supporting Brazil, though there are a lot of fan following here in India for nations like Argentina, Germany, England, Netherlands, Portugal, France, Italy, Spain etc...

Anyway one Indian team is actively participating in the FIFA 2010 world cup in South Africa !!! Any guess???

Indian Software Giant Mahindra Satyam is the Official IT Services Provider for FIFA 2010 world cup.

And there was a time when bare footed Indian football team ruled the Asian sub-continent and reached the semi-final in 1956 Melbourne Olympics; the first nation from Asia to reach semis in Olympics .......to read more interesting facts you can click here

Recycled jersey by NIKE

Kudos Nike!

Nike has come up with a novel idea of making jersey from recycled plastic bottle and close to ten Nike sponsored teams i.e. Australia, New Zealand, Serbia Netherlands, Portugal, United States, South Korea and Slovenia, will don this jersey for the world cup matches starting tonight. This is a timely and clever move by Nike, to make world cup a platform to display their environmental and social obligations.

Anyway! Information from net says that, this move by Nike will help stopping 250000 kgs of polyster waste being dumped on land.

Once again Great Job Nike for adopting Go Green policies!
