The Kickoff starts tomorrow.. and we do have some football fans here amongst us but don’t know how many..

For those loyal fans, our fellow Dimers, with a sportsman spirit we would like to reward you guys simple for your love for the game smile

It’s going to be a fierce 1 month, and we have just 2 question for you..
As the players dribble the ball closer to the opposing team’s goal, are you ready to feel your heart race faster as the players running like the wind.. witness some rough running, terrific tackling, deadly defenses and glorious goals!?

And also.. how do you think this will end.. we are looking to understand your predictions..

Q) Tell us which teams will make it to the final 4 teams, the last ones standing for the semis! And who do you feel will be the most deserving player, the player to win the Golden Boot this time!?

Just to keep this fair and exciting, we are accepting any and all predictions till the end of this month, i.e. 30th June and will ofcourse reward you the Dimer who get’s it right first

Some fun FIFA 2018 of 2018:

  • FIFA financial documents reviewed by The New York Times states that the 2018 World Cup that kicks off Thursday in Moscow is set to make a cool $6.1 billion in revenue, 10 percent more than FIFA had estimated for the tournament, $1.3 billion more than the last World Cup produced in 2014 in Brazil.
  • Television rights sales are up by 2 percent more than FIFA’s $3 billion target
  • FIFA’s sponsorship deals generated $200 million more than the $1.45 billion it had projected, majorly due to more Chinese Companies involved this time.
  • 7 of the 20 companies sponsoring the tournament are Chinese, more than the last World Cup.
  • EA Sports got 233% more annual royalties compared to last year. EA Sports were paid FIFA $160 million in 2017.

Flashback: When India Chose Not to Play the 1950 FIFA World CuP

The 21st FIFA World Cup is set to begin on 14 June in Russia. Once again, there will be no team from India at the quadrennial competition. The Blue Tigers have not featured in a single senior FIFA World Cup tournament till date – having only participated in their first-ever FIFA World Cup during the U-17 competition in 2017.
India have struggled to book a spot in the World Cup for many years. In 1950, India had a chance to play in the big event. But they did not. You may have heard the oft-repeated story that the team was not allowed to play because they wanted to play the tournament barefoot.
Is that story true, you ask. No, the truth is that the host nation, Brazil, asked the Indian team to travel for the 1950 World Cup, but the All India Football Federation (AIFF) decided not to participate, as Sports Illustrated records.
Turkey too decided not to participate, since it couldn’t travel too far; European sides like Scotland, Ireland, Portugal and France also gave the tournament a miss. The AIFF were wary about the Indian team’s fitness as well, since they played 70-minute games while the teams played for 90 minutes in the World Cup.
The bottom line is that the AIFF thought it made no sense to send a team to a “small” tournament, especially since it would probably be humiliated in front of other teams. India were invited for the World Cup only because all their regional competitors pulled out of the tournament, Sports Illustrated reports.
For what it’s worth, the myth of not being allowed to play the World Cup because the team wanted to play without boots stems from the fact that the Indian team did play football barefoot at the time.
Impressed with India’s performance, King George VI invited the team, coached by Syed Abdul Rahim, to the Buckingham Palace. At the time, the British media called forward Ahmed Khan a “snake charmer” for his excellent ball control, according to Sports Illustrated.
However, in the next Olympics, the Indians found it difficult to play barefoot on the cold turf in Helsinki, Finland, and succumbed to a 1-10 loss to Yugoslavia.
Following the disastrous loss, the AIFF made it mandatory for the players to wear boots.
