It is the dream of most sports fanatics to hit the major leagues in the world one day or to hear their name called at the IPL auction or football transfer. For most of the people, however, this is only a dream.
Luckily, love for sports does not fade away if you realise just how narrow the playing field is for those who make their careers as professional athletes. Today there are more ways than ever before to incorporate your love for sports into your day-to-day job. Fans can now aspire for so many sports jobs in India itself.
