Durand Cup may shift

New Delhi: The oldest football tournament in India, Durand Cup, is likely to be shifted out of Delhi and could be held in Goa this year from October 29 to November 9.

The secretary of the tournament committee, Lieutenant Colonel PD Kherwal, told The Telegraph on Wednesday that there was a proposal to shift the tournament out of Delhi.

“The issue had been discussed in the general house of the Durand Cup Society. There is no particular reason behind the plan to shift the tournament. We want to give the Durand Cup a pan-Indian character.”

Started in 1988 in Shimla, Durand Cup is the third oldest football tournament in the world.
