Stadium named after Bhaichung Bhutia set to inaugurate post pandemic

Bhutia, the first Indian footballer to play 100 International matches said he is “honoured”.

A 15,000-capacity stadium in Sikkim, to be named after Indian football great Bhaichung Bhutia, is scheduled to be inaugurated after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides.

The stadium is in Namchi, which is 25 kilometres away from the maestro’s birthplace in Tinkitam.

“It’s our tribute to one of the best Indian footballers. Even after hanging his boots, Bhaichung Bhutia has been a role model to many and will continue to inspire footballers of India, let alone Sikkim,” Sikkim Football Association president Menla Ethenpa was quoted as saying by the All India Football Federation (AIFF).

“We can’t repay for what he has done for Indian football. But a stadium named after him might be a small homage towards the great footballer,” he added.

This is going to be the first-ever stadium in the country to be named after any footballer.

Bhutia, the first Indian footballer to play 100 International matches said he is “honoured”.

“I’m very much honoured and excited. If you look at the larger picture I’m happier because the budding footballers will get another top-class facility and infrastructure to play football.

“This stadium has produced many footballers including me. I have so many memories of playing there,” Bhutia said.
