Goafirst BRICS U17 live telecast on DD Sports today

NEW DELHI: The first-ever BRICS U-17 Football Tournament, being held in Goa this month, will be telecast live by DD Sports.

The tournament kick-starts in Goa on 5 October and will see Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa in the challenge for the trophy. India will play Russia in the opener at the GMC Stadium, Bambolim, today.

The tournament will witness two matches every alternate day which will be telecast live on DD Sports Channel.

Doordarshan has made elaborate arrangements to telecast the tournament for its viewers on DD Sports. Around 60 officials have been drafted for a seamless broadcast. Doordarshan has deployed its high-tech OB vans to ensure crystal clear quality for its viewers.

For the first time, Doordarshan has tied up with the local Kendras to broadcast the event in four languages (English, Hindi, Malayalam and Bangla).

Apart from this, an added feature would be that viewers can watch free mobile TV using DVB-T2 dongles in OTG-enabled smart phones and tablets, Wi-Fi dongles for moving vehicles, besides the TV sets having built-in DVB-T2 tuner which are called Integrated Digital TV (iDTV).

Earlier last week, the prime minister Narendra Modi had unveiled the trophy for BRICS U-17 football tournament. Modi reiterated the nation’s commitment to ‘Sports for All’ and ‘Khelo India’ and taking football to every corner of the country.

The prime minister also wished the tournament a grand success, and said he was confident that it will meet its objective of facilitating greater understanding and friendship amongst all participants.

The tournament aims at taking the ongoing interaction and cohesion among the BRICS nations to a new level of exchange between the youth of these countries in the field of sports.
