The Indian Federation of Sports Gaming (IFSG), India’s first sports gaming industry body committed to protect consumer interests through self-regulation, today launched its athlete support programme ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ (SOT). The programme has been created with an aim to identify and support India’s future sporting talent in diverse set non-mainstream sports such as Sailing, Squash, Tennis, Swimming and Golf to name a few. Athletes selected under the programme will be offered critical support towards the fulfilment of their sporting goals. 168 entries were received from across the country, and after a rigorous selection process led by GoSports, who are the ‘Implementation Partner’ of this initiative, 13 talented athletes have been selected to be a part of IFSG’s Stars of Tomorrow programme. Dream11 Foundation, the primary contributor to this programme, has pledged Rs.3 crores to support IFSG’s cause.
