Indian cricket’s biggest fan and Global Sports Fan Awardee, Shri Sudhir Kumar Gautam will endorse the National Fantasy Cricket Championship (NFCC). The association between NFCC and Shri Sudhir Gautam will play an important role in keeping the fan-first model of the company.
Indian cricket team and Sachin Tendulkar’s biggest fan Sudhir Kumar Gautam is the representation for fans and their love towards cricket and the legend Master Blaster. Though people may not know him by name, he is unquestionably one of the most renowned faces seen in the stands in every important match now and back in the day every match which Sachin used to play. With the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Sudhir is a true symbol of “Dil Se Indian” who brings together the soul of fandom and cricket mania for the ongoing NFCC.
“Main Bihar ke ek chhote se shehar Muzaffarpur se hoon aur 6 saal ke umar se hi Cricket ka deewana hoon. Aaj meri phechan ka poora shrey Indian Cricket team aur Sachin ji ko jaata hai. Maine kayi baari matches dekhne ke liye kayi kathinaion ka saamna kia hai, cycle chala kar door-door tak match dekhne jata tha. Bina train ticket ke safar kiya hai, par stadium pahunch kar mujhe jo khushi milti thi uske samne ye saare pareshani kam lagti thi. Shayad mera janm hi ek cricket fan banne k liye hua tha.”
“Aaj ke fans ke paas apne favorite game se judey rehne ke zariye kaafi aasaan ho gaye hain. Fantasy sports unme se ek hai. NFCC ek bilkul naye tarike ka format hai jo ki aapko mauka deta hai ye batane ka, ke aap game ko kitne accche se samjhte ho aur game ke kitne bade fan ho. Mujhe NFCC ke sath apni pehchan jod kar bohot khushi ho rahi hai.” said Mr. Sudhir Kumar Gautam, stating on the association.
The journeys of hard work and sweat to watch each match is truly an inspiration for the generations to come for all sports fans. The love and passion which Mr. Sudhir Kumar Gautam brings truly define the statement “Cricket is a Religion in our country”.
A well-known figure in the stadiums and to the media, since 2002 Gautam has been seen with paint all over his body with the Indian flag in his hand, and also sometimes with a conch that he blows at all joyous times.
Mr. Saurabh Chopra, CEO of BalleBaazi.com, said on the association, “NFCC’s whole and sole objective is “for the fans and by the fans”. Even after the commencement of the championship, we felt that there needs to be a true fan to represent the spirit of the championship and who can epitomize that better than Sudhir. We have been witnessing significant participation in the championship from all parts of the country and with Sudhir ji on board, we only intend to take it a level further.”
