While FIFA fever has gripped the entire nation, our B-Town celebrities have been not spared as well. Be it micro blogging websites or playing friendly football matches, everyone is enjoying every bit of it. And here’s someone who is well known for his love for football and has been a special invitee from FIFA for the current world cup in Brazil. Yes, it’s none other than John Abraham.
Buzz is that the actor has been approached for a unique concept of football in India which is called FUTTA. For the records, FUTTA is a modern and interesting version of football where grounds will be smaller than the regular ones and teams will play the game without any goalkeeper. Also the duration of the game is just 30 mins.
This unique tournament is going to be held in Udaipur, starting from today, 4thJuly and go on till 6th July 2014. Interestingly the Prince Of Udaipur, Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar, an avid lover of the sport, is supporting and promoting this tournament for a noble cause where the funds raised from it will go to feed the underprivileged children.
So impressed with such a cause, John said to have taken some time from his busy professional schedules to be part of this event. 16 teams from across the nation are expected to participate in this event.
