Two months ago, Manipur’s women’s soccer team won the national football championship for the fourth time. Meanwhile, Manipur’s men’s football team, which won the Santosh Trophy once in 2002-03, is one of the best in the championship. “Almost all our locality clubs in the Singjamei area have put up television sets or projectors for group watching where we enjoy the game some of us draped in blankets while sipping tea to keep our senses alert,” Sanasam Bamdev, a football fan, stated to PTI.
Sanasam said about the upcoming showpiece event in Qatar. On December 18, Argentina and the defending champions France will meet in the World Cup final. Even N Biren Singh, the state’s chief minister, and a former national team player braved the cold to watch on a public screen as the men in blue. White defeated the World Cup runners-up to set up a matchup with France on Sunday.
On his official Facebook page, Biren Singh wrote, “Friends, my team ARGENTINA will win today’s match against the Netherlands, Pls support.” This was the earlier indication of his decision. Like some other spots. Fans in the northeastern state have forever been gigantic allies of Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Portugal, and Spain. “We have live telecast the matches from the quarter-finals,” said Wangkheimayum Kennison, executive member of Lizard Library. One of the largest local clubs in Wangkhei, Imphal East district.
For the finals, we will broadcast it with the assistance of a projector and a white screen. Over 200 football fans are anticipated to attend the premier football event. In the areas of Bamon Leikai and Sagolband Bijoy Govinda, similar arrangements are also being made. Since the league round, all games have been televised at the Thoubal Mela Ground in the Thoubal district. There are high hopes for the Sunday finals. One of the organizers of the matches, football fanatic Soibam Boinao, stated, “We are expecting more than 200 plus crowd for the finals.”
