Sports Connect Programme
Objective/Description The Sports Connect program aims to set a long-term path for generating interest in the Indian Sports sector using technology as a key driver to broad base interest and identify talent that can be honed towards elite sports. Although some of the key features of ICT initiatives undertaken in the sector and the relevant data collected can be accessed through Sports Connect, unlike these initiatives, the program needs a continuous data-monitoring mechanism. Data will have to be updated regularly to make it a portal that is dynamic enough to generate an on-going interest in the sports fraternity. There are seven key ICT-enabled initiatives that have been identified under the Sports Connect program.
