KOCHI: Come tomorrow, football frenzy will peak in the city. Cashing in on the fervour, many local clubs have decided to live screen the matches. Sajil, who leads the Brazil fans group in Kalamassery, said they are all set to celebrate the World Cup. “In our locality, both Brazil and Argentina fans will be screening World Cup matches in big screens.
There will also be a poster exhibition and mascots will be put up at screening spots,” he said.
Clubs in Karukappilly, Elamakkara, Mattancherry, Maradu, Thopumpady, Aluva and Tripunithara have also jumped on the bandwagon. Besides, restaurants and malls in the city will also screen matches.
The trend has ensured a brisk business for agencies renting out projectors. Soman, who rents out projectors, said he has been receiving queries about the rate of the projectors for some time.
“We have seven projectors and all of them have been booked by now. The booking is mostly to screen matches of Argentina and Brazil,” he said.
