SPAG Asia has baged a key mandate from the Local Organising Committee (LOC), an organisation within the All India Football Federation (AIFF) to manage the announcement of India taking over as the official host for FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017.

Commenting on this development, Joy Bhattacharjya, Project Director at LOC FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 said, “This landmark tournament is set to ring in a Football Revolution in the country. It becomes imperative for us to reach out to every fan, aspiring player, marketer and enthusiast and keep them informed about this amazing opportunity. SPAG Asia’s new-age creative approach and enterprising team offered the best fit to amplify the communication requirements of this project.”
Aman Gupta, Managing Partner, SPAG Asia, elated at this client acquisition, said, “We are brimming with excitement with this new win and look forward to deliver a top-notch communication campaign around the tournament announcement.
