Kochi in hot water with Federation Internationale de Football Association over shops in stadium complex

15 Septembre 2017

Greater Cochin Development Authority (GCDA), the body which owns the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium in Kochi which is one of the venues scheduled to host the upcoming Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup from October 6 to 28, has landed in hot water with Federation Internationale de Football Association over non-adherence to the guidelines regarding shops inside stadium complex.

A directive was sent by the city authority for the temporary closure of these shops but a petition was filed against it in court by the shop owners.

According to this, GCDA gave notice to shop owners but the latter approached the high court against this. The court has asked the GCDA to provide a detailed explanation in this regard on Saturday.

When it was pointed out that West Bengal government had made arrangements for 5,000 students to watch each match Kolkata was hosting, Moideen said the state government would try to do "something" to accommodate students at concessional rates. "Since the matter is now the subject of a litigation under review by the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala, we believe it is not prudent to make any particular comments about these proceedings".

"We are aware that now there are legal proceedings ongoing in the High Court of Kerala between the Greater Cochin Development Authority (GCDA) and various individuals engaged in running commercial activities in the premises of the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium (JNI Stadium) in Kochi".

And on Friday, the State Government and the GCDA filed an affidavit in the court that they were legally bound to hand over the stadium to Federation Internationale de Football Association for the World Cup and not honouring the agreement would force the world body to remove Kochi as a championship venue.

"This is a matter between the GCDA and the individuals concerned, and we hope that a suitable resolution for both parties can be arrived at", said the statement from the LOC. The last match will be a semi-final fixture on October 22.
