Edelman India wins integrated mandate for fantasy sports firm BalleBaazi

Edelman India has won the integrated mandate for BalleBaazi, India’s fastest growing fantasy sports platform, for the upcoming T20 cricket league. Edelman India will manage the integrated mandate across brand, corporate and digital including creative duties for social and outdoor as well as paid media.

Established in 2018  to create the best fantasy sports experience in the field of cricket, the platform has since grown into a 3 million-strong player base and has expanded into other sports such as football and kabaddi.

Commenting on the appointment, Deepanshi Tomar, general manager - marketing, BalleBaazi, said,  It is our aim to provide the audience with the best fantasy sports experience. For us, the next few months are critical; we aim to expand our user-base by more than three-fold by the end of the upcoming T20 cricket league. Bringing Edelman India on board is one of our steps in this direction; their expertise in integrated communications will definitely help take our start-up to the next level.”

“While cricket remains a passion in India, fantasy gaming is new and start-ups like BalleBaazi have the potential to make a strong impact as the Indian gaming industry gains momentum”, said Rakesh Thukral, managing director of Edelman India.
