Football why its not popular in india

Football is a wonderful team game. still its not popular in india.
Cricket is the only game dominating all the sports in india.its not good for india and cricket too.the sport ministry should do an alternative way to encourage the youth and sports board to give equal importance to all games.

You are partially correct. But, football too enjoyed in our country. Particularly in West Bengal, you can find more clubs and fans for Football than to cricket.

The media in India is supporting more cricket, and that is the major reason.

If there comes a franchise based football event in India like the EPL, with lots of reward for the players, then surely football will develop.

This is such an obvious factor. MONEY. Here, cricketers are pampered with lots and lots of money. THe other sports are neglected when compared to cricket. If there is no money in the sport, how can an individual play in it as well as support his family in a good way? A cricketer in India can support his family well or even in luxury.

But can a footballer in India do the same? No. If this scenario changes, then surely football in India will develop.
