North East United FC unifies North East in the first ISL match in Guwahati

"Watching North East United FC vs Kerala Blasters Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium at Sarusajai Guwahati" would be the most happening status update of today. Given the fact that tickets were all sold out much before for the second ISL match between Kerala Blasters and NEUted FC I'm sure many would be returning home heartbroken. But it is really heartwarming to see football fans across the North Eastern States are thronging at Sarusajai Stadium in Assam. City-dwellers of all caste and creed are taking pride in the fact that stars of the most coveted dream world like Sachin Tendulkar, John Abraham, Nita Ambani etc are hobnobbing in our humble land!

United North East

Football fans are basking in the glory of 'United' North East. So what if we are warring with each other over border issues all through the year?  Now is the time to unite. We have the stars at our support. Many fans are underling this over and over that football will unite the states of North East. Owner of North East United Football Club John Abraham's name was dragged into controversy for the choice of the title of his team. But now everybody seems to be happy only.

Youngest Football team of ISL

 NEUted FC is the youngest Football team of the ISL. John Abraham is heard  expressing his desire to have his boys groomed further for National Level by the exposure of young Footballers from North East to the world football talents. It is surely a great hope if he really thinks like that. And we are hopeful that talents of North East will continue to have place in the Team.

Sarusojai stadium finds new lease of life

As we know how things happen in our state. After the National Games Sarusajai Stadium remained in a forlorn state in all these years. But looking at the stadium in pictures today no one dares say that. Must admit the the jugad was awesome!

Consumerism cannot be resisted
If commercialization of Football can revive Football in India that why not? Otherwise how players will survive. The cost of living, training and maintenance of athletics are huge and ISL, Indian Hockey League, Indian Kabadi League after IPL are all definitely playing huge role in professionalization of of sports in India. To bring Professionalism into sports commercialization of stuff is a must. But while we are glued to the screen to watch the tidbits of ISL and our favourite stars news of several rapes in different parts of the state of Assam really heart-wrenching! We strongly condemn such activities.
