Fantasy Sports

Creating a virtuous cycle of sports development

Federation of Indian Fantasy Sports (FIFS) and Deloitte

The Indian Fantasy Sports (FS) Industry has experienced significant growth over the past few years. With a market size of over INR 34,000 crore, buoyed by strategic investments, the industry now caters to over 13 crore registered users. Over a span of five years, the industry footprint has grown to become the largest in the world and customer acquisition is only ramping up in our sports obsessed nation.

As the industry matures, FS operators are actively seeking out opportunities to enhance this symbiotic relationship and contribute to the sporting industry. While their digital footprint is helping create future-ready jobs in AI, ML, and analytics, contribution to the overall expansion of both, Indian sports and the digital ecosystem is a testament to the Atmanirbhar Bharat and Digital India philosophy.

The FS industry is also embracing order and structure to ensure that the rapid industry growth is tempered with a mature approach to governance. Through self-regulation, FS operators have built frameworks to ensure that the growth in the industry is sustained by ethical and transparent practices enforced across all its members.
