Hi everyone,

Are Indians at all interested in football/soccer? Do they show matches on TV/sports bars?
I might be attending a wedding in July (the final week of the World Cup) and while it's secondary, it would be great to catch a couple of live matches! :)

thanks

Soccer (what the ycall football) is the second most popular sport in India after cricket.
