Rooter, a digital platform that connects, engages, and helps sports audience interact with each other on a real-time basis has added another feather to its crown of accomplishments. By including Kabaddi and F1 In its basket of offerings, Rooter has achieved the unique and standalone distinction of being the first platform to host 7 types sports in one application.
Having already achieved an overwhelming response from its users with quarter of a million downloads and an average of 13-15 minutes of time spent by users on the app every day, Rooter has further endeared itself to its users by including sports such as Kabaddi and F1. Both these sports are enjoying a steady growth in their popularity across the country, especially with the Pro Kabaddi League and increased Indian participation in F1.
Commenting on the achievement, Piyush, Founder and CEO, Rooter, said, “ It is a moment of great pride to know that Rooter has become the first platform to offer such an array of diverse kinds of sports on a single platform. From its very beginning, we envisioned Rooter to be a complete sports destination for all our users who could find each and every sporting info they needed on our app. With the inclusion of Kabaddi and F1, we have broadened our user base and we welcome the fans of these extremely exciting sports to become ardent Rooters and make their sports experience richer.”
Rooter has been hailed as one of the few unique concepts to have come out of the Indian start-up ecosphere without any prior model existing elsewhere globally. An innovative concept that combines sports and social interaction-two of India’s biggest passions, it has found some iconic ambassadors such as Boman Irani and Intex technologies, who through their investments and constant encouragement have put their weight behind this one-of-a-kind platform.
