    Hyderabad the worst city for sports,before we atleast used to do well in cricket now we are all rounders(ZERO in everything) =D>

    No Football Association which means no clubs can register under AIFF tournament nor can any player represent India and sign club and play in AIFF registered tournament.

    Hockey too is a game of beggars,no facilities no tournaments so nothing for it in Hyderabad.

    For cricket there is everything but still they are shittest of lot in India.

    Like @Shankar said. You guys got Hyderabad Globe FC. If they make a good success then I am sure things will get better.

    Good news for Hockey,hope they do well in Olympics and continue growing.

    As for Football I'm not satisfied with AIFF-IMG Reliance also few clubs have really disappointed me.

    Somehow I am having a gut feeling it is around the corner. 2012 is going to change the face of Indian football.

    I am not talking about initiative from IMG - RIL, but the way clubs have stand up from themselves I think they are going to make or break it. Secondly, if supposed bid for 2017 u-17 world cup is successful, it might gather some media attention and more fans. Thirdly, the fifa-aiff academies, NPL, Maha league, etc. though they are small steps, but will materialize by end of 2012.
    That's the reason I am having the feeling.

    ya there had been many initiatives from different state associations and clubs even corporates like g-group coming with their academies are some of the few steps good eough to keep our hope and dream alive to expect a better coming years for indian football
  • The league will never get better. It will be 16 teams with promotion relegation and we will see the AMAZING teams in the league like ONGC and Bank of Hyderabad all because for some reason PERFORMANCE COUNTS MORE THAN STABILITY!!!!!
  • Hyundai Sonata tie-up with Indian Polo Association


    Commenting on the polo tournament, Mr. Arvind Saxena, Director, Marketing and Sales, HMIL said, “We are delighted to associate with the Indian Polo Association for the Hyundai Sonata Ambassadors Cup 2012. The Sonata is a premium offering from Hyundai, tie-up with the Indian Polo Association that promotes a fine sport like polo provides a great match for both the Sonata and polo.”

    Giving company to the impressive Sonata at the venue was the luxury SUV Santa Fe and segment leader Verna. Also present were the international three-door Veloster and the yet-to-be-launched Elantra in the executive segment.

    Besides the Hyundai Sonata team the five other teams that competed in the tournament were Jindal Steel and Power, Vayamtech, Hyatt Regency, Black Dog and Sahgal Stud/APRC. The final match on a Sunday afternoon drew a large number of polo enthusiasts to the venue. The impressive tunes from the army band stationed at the grounds lent an air of grandeur to the event.

    Like HMIL’s recent cars the Sonata too is crafted on the principles of ‘Fluidic Sculpture’, where contrasting surfaces create a sense of constant motion. This sixth generation Sonata has interesting features like front and rear seat ventilation, front seat warmers, high intensity Xenon head lamps, cruise control, paddle shift, 10-way adjustable power seat with lumbar support and a 4-way power adjustable front co-driver seat.

    The Sonata is equipped with 6 airbags, anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (EBD), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), rear view camera and smart key with push button start apart from a host of features that enhances the driving experience like the VFD (Vacuum Fluorescent Display) cluster and a X-shaped centre fascia. The super-efficient 2.4 liter GDi petrol engine is mated to 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions. GDi technology results in enhanced performance and fuel efficiency as the high pressure fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber. The engineering excellence is extended to the suspensions by way of having hi-tech ASD (Amplitude Selective Damper) resulting into improved driving comfort.
