FIFA has decided to move the venue of the semi-final between Brazil and England, due to be played on 25 October 2017 to Kolkata’s Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan Stadium, where the match will kick off at 17:00 local time.

Despite the great efforts by all involved parties, including the authorities of State Government of Assam, to preserve the pitch, FIFA has taken this decision following consultations with both teams in order to safeguard the player’s health and to ensure the best playing conditions.

The second semi-final on that day, between Mali and Spain, will still kick off as planned at 20:00 local time at the Dr. DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. Fans with a valid ticket for the semi-final originally planned to take place in Guwahati will be able to request a refund for the purchase value of their tickets, and will also have priority access to purchase tickets for the semi-final in Kolkata.
