Shrinivas Dempo has been nominated as the Goa Venue Director for the Local Organising Committee (LOC) of the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017.

FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 Tournament Director Javier Ceppi informed Dempo on his nomination yesterday. „It has been a very long journey since India was allotted the rights to host the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017 back in December 2013 and you have been an instrumental part throughout the complete process. You were the one that pushed things forward for the first FIFA Inspection Visit conducted by Mr. Iňaki Alvarez back in February 2014 and your faith and support in Goa was one of the biggest reasons as to why it was selected as a venue not only for the World Cup, but also for the AFC U-16 Championship 2016,“ Ceppi stated in an official letter to Shrinivas Dempo.

„As such, we could not think of a more perfect fit to become the Goa Venue Director for the Local Organising Committee of the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017. The Venue Director is the highest position at each venue level and it is responsible to ensure that everything goes on as per the plans and requirements and its venue is able to deliver a fantastic show for the tournament.“

„We are very sure that with your continuous support and attention, Goa will strive as a venue for the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 and we are delighted to have you on board to see the complete journey of delivering the first football World Cup in our country,“ Ceppi added.
