Soccer in India

Interesting piece on Indian soccer. Thanks to soccer-source.blogspot.com for this.

We're seeing more and more pro teams stake their claims in far away places now. For example, the Red Sox and Yankees have a presence in Asia now. It remains to be seen whether English teams decide to go into India.

Former title holders of the Asian Cup in 1951 and 1962, Indian soccer is nowhere near cricket or field hockey in terms of popularity. I guess it's akin to soccer here in North America. However, given its massive population, one would figure that a decent soccer team can be carved out.

FIFA clearly has some interest as the following link to Forbes shows.
