Fueled by their passion for
sports, Raghav Gupta and Anant Roongta, Founders of Fanatic, noted: “2016 promises to be a great year for sport and we are excited to be a part of it. It has been an absolute honour to have such a coveted title bestowed upon us. We thank the IOA for their support and trust.
