Kerala is ready to be one of the hosts of the 2017 U-17 World Cup if it is allocated to India by football world body FIFA, Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said Wednesday.

"We are agreeable to hosting the event in Kerala. We will soon ink a MoU with the (union) sports ministry," Chandy told reporters here Wednesday.

The union Government last month gave the go-ahead to India's ambitious bid to host the U-17 Football World Cup in 2017, that is already being backed by FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke.

The AIFF has proposed five states as the venues - Delhi, West Bengal, Maharashtra, Karnataka and one among Assam, Goa and Kerala.
