Most of the seventy teams from various European countries which had started from Cochin, Kerela on March 28 are expected to reach the finishing line at Gangtok by tomorrow.

The PCS has invited all the football lovers and its well-wishers to come to Paljor Stadium to witness a unique match and cheer for both the host and tourists’ teams. 
Vikash Pradhan, the Chief of Field Operations for South Asia of The Adventurists has thanked the Sikkimese people and State government for providing a warm reception to the international teams when they entered Sikkim. “We look forward for a great match and we request the people of Gangtok to see the media persons of the State of Bhaichung Bhutia play against us. 
Some of our team members have learnt great maneuvers while tackling the traffic on the Indian roads which will come handy in tomorrow’s match”, said Pradhan. The PCS is also looking forward towards the friendly match and its members today completed a four day practice session at Tadong government college ground.
