Why India?
The establishment of professional leagues in India over the past ten years makes it one of the most exciting and lucrative sports markets in the world.  Leagues and franchise owners are taking steps to facilitate extensive grassroots participation across multiple sports and are creating pathways for young talent to consider sports as a career. Furthermore, the burgeoning fitness industry is widening community participation by way of marathons, running & cycling groups, private gyms, in-house fitness centres within office premises & residences, artificial sports turfs on rooftops, etc.

This continuing trend of private sector getting involved in driving the sector growth creates a direct and relatively easy market access channel for Victorian sports technology companies to offer their products and services without going through the bureaucratic  hurdles of the government, which was the case during the pre-IPL period.
