Sports is inspiring, engaging, immersive, emotion evoking, and a rapidly
growing industry worldwide. While sports in India has usually been a
government-led initiative, the private sector has historically participated
through corporate social responsibility channels, PPP in sports infrastructure
development and for profit sports academies. Now, sports leagues have emerged as a primary vehicle for the private sector.
