The Fanatic Community – Building a Sports Enthralled Journey
With a 25+ member team, the company follows a work culture that liberates their employees to provide one of the best services in the industry. Over the years, Fanatic has grown exponentially well. Enthusiastically, Raghav says, “In a short span of time we’ve achieved a lot. Achieving what we did at Rio was a proud moment for us. The sole agent for Commonwealth games, getting a license for rugby sitting in India, trying to expand into Singapore and Dubai, take a 1000 people to the Champion’s Trophy – all this was very challenging, but we took up the challenge and we did it. Having said that, in a country this big, what we have achieved is minuscule. We hope to achieve much more”

Further enumerating he asserts “Our agenda is to tap into the massive fan base that India enjoys. Tap into people’s passion. Create an experience at every level for every stage of clientele, for every scale of clientele. Most important of all, Fanatic Sports is for everybody, we are here to convert India into a multi-sports country. The fandom that we are trying to create will be one that will be infectious. By the next ten years, we will have a fanatic community which will create its own roadmap. Fanatic will be a force of its own.”
