The Fifth season of Football For Friendship 2017 Programme implemented by Gazprom, the Official partner of FIFA and the 2018 FIFA World Cup™, concluded successfully in St. Petersburg.
India joined the programme for the first time and was represented by Ananya Kamboj and Sujal Kahar who were selected as the young journalist and young footballer respectively.
About her experience in Russia, Ananya said “I am glad to have got the opportunity to be a part of the programme and experience firsthand how a media centre works. It was a new and different experience for me. I made a lot of new friends from so many different countries. I also had a great time anchoring the Football for Friendship Digest, as it gave me the confidence to report on a global stage”
