"Once into the app, the person needs to search for the FIFA U-17 World Cup tab and provide the ticket number and gate number. The app will automatically locate the nearest parking spot for the ticket holder's vehicle and guide it from the destination to the parking area as per the route designated by Bidhannagar Traffic Police," a police officer said.

Once the car is at the parking area near the stadium, an attendant will swipe the code provided on the ticket and help the car driver in getting a space for parking, he added. "So, people need not worry about parking...they just need to come and enjoy the match," he said.

Around 2,600 vehicles can be parked in the designated area at the Salt Lake Stadium. The Bidhanngar Police has also arranged for parking within two kilometres of the seven gates of the ground, the officer said.
