Baichung Stadium - Namchi

Baichung Stadium is a very famous football stadium in Namchi. The stadium was framed in honor of Baichung Bhutia, India's most famous contemporary footballer. He is an Indian footballer of Sikkimese-Bhutia descent who plays as a striker. Bhutia is thought to be the torchbearer of Indian football in the global coliseum. Bhutia is usually nicknamed as the Sikkimese Sniper on account of his shooting abilities in football. The state intends to effectively advance the game made prominent after Bhutia turned into being the first Indian to play in an European League and guide the national team as a captain. This spot is under development and soon it will turn into a center of game exercises in Sikkim. This stadium is situated at a decent tallness above ocean level and it sees that the administration is empowering football. The Baichung Stadium is the best place to visit for the people who love football or any sort of sports.
