At 10am, the balaks had all arrived and were seated for the opening ceremony. The expressions of joy on everyone’s faces told the story. All the balaks were dressed in special designed t-shirts. Amrutvihari Swami performed the deep pragatya in the presence of Harikrishna Maharaj after which coordinators spoke about how the game should be played with the right team spirit and with unity.
The tournament began with great enthusiasm and pomp. With 115 matches being played, the ground was full of fun, laughter and delight. Many parents had also come along to support their children. Apart from the continuous enjoyment of football, there were refreshments served throughout the day to all parents and children.
