We all have grown up playing sports and games during our childhood. At a time like this, especially when social distancing norms don’t allow us to physically relish those times, it’s really exciting how Faboom’s disruptive platform provides us with the exact same feeling of enjoying our favorite sport. I’m eagerly looking forward to being a part of this passionate group.”

We have always admired Bhuvan Bam for doing things differently and disrupting the content space in a huge way. Similarly, Faboom is innovating in the fantasy sports industry by increasing the skill levels in the sport with its Rank and Boost fantasy formats and that is the spirit of our new IPL campaign with BB – No captain/Vice-captain, use all your 11 players and play the real fantasy on Faboom.”
