Federation Cup 2017: Presented by Federation de Sports Association.
Federation Cup 2017 is round the corner as heavy weight teams from Kolkata gear up to have the mega faceoff. It will be some clash to cherish.
The tournament is scheduled over 2 days- 15th and 16th April. The weekend will be not so leisurely for the 288 players taking part as they have a job in hand. The venue for the tournament is NKDA stadium, Salt Lake (near Newtown Busstand).
The tournament consists of 16 teams. The teams are divided into groups of 4. Then the top 2 teams from each of the four groups qualify for the quarter finals. From then on, it is straight forward knock out. Quarter Finals, then Semis and Finals at last. This Round Robin format tests the strength, agility, consistency and dedication of each of the teams.
The entry fee for each team is Rs 2600. Having said that, it must be added that the prizes on stake are high enough. The Runners-Up of Federation Cup gets Rs 5,000 and the Champions get Rs 10,000 along with stunning trophies. This is too much to aim for.
Here is wishing a great luck to Federation Cup 2017. Good luck to the organizing team and of course the playing teams.
