Kolkata: More than 3,000 school kids, including those differently abled, are all set to celebrate Children's Day today by watching ISL match between Atletico de Kolkata and Chennaiyin FC.

"We have given them free tickets and they will come in their school uniforms. The government is providing buses for them. Besides that we have also invited 250 differently abled children," a ATK team official said.
