    Ladies sports will rise slowly. Im surprised no money is put into Women's Football. Indian WFT would eaisly qualify for the Womens FIFA World Cup.
  • WSH ratings equals EPL

    The viewership ratings in the very first week of the inaugural Bridgestone World Series Hockey is on par with the world’s most followed sports league, EPL. In fact the ratings are 33 per cent higher than F1. The average rating for the 9 PM game is 25 per cent higher than EPL.

    “We have been successful in creating a strong sporting property that is in India and for India. The very first week ratings have been encouraging and is a clear testimony that hockey is the only sport after cricket that can deliver pan national viewership,” said Yannick Colaco, COO, Nimbus Sport.

    “The awareness and buzz around WSH is unprecedented across all touch points including social media. The response from the commercial eco-system has been overwhelming with brands such as Bridgestone, Vodafone, Seagram’s Imperial Blue, Coke, etc. on board,” added Colaco.

    The viewership data also proves that hockey is the only sport after cricket that has pan national following and best services the need gap of a strong second sport in India. The ratings of WSH are a whopping 400 per cent more than I League, the domestic football league in India.

    ya franchise league is better for the clubs and fans as it would mean club can invest off-field as well as they have the assurance of staying in the league until they are financially stable and also fans could be assured of a club in their city for time till they are there to support

    true words there. I am telling you. There is a reason for all this. AIFF started the first national sports league in 1996 (tournaments dont count like Ranji Trophy etc) and 16 years later, nothing has changed but IPL starts in 2007 and WSH in 2012 and major success. And those are franchise leagues!

    Hyderabad the worst city for sports,before we atleast used to do well in cricket now we are all rounders(ZERO in everything) =D>

    No Football Association which means no clubs can register under AIFF tournament nor can any player represent India and sign club and play in AIFF registered tournament.

    Hockey too is a game of beggars,no facilities no tournaments so nothing for it in Hyderabad.

    For cricket there is everything but still they are shittest of lot in India.
