Panaji (Goa) [India], February 8 (ANI/NewsVoir): Fuelling the passion for sports in the country, Indian Super League (ISL) has been a hit this season amongst the football enthusiasts.
The Indian audience is showing keen interest in football as it invests time in keeping up with high-intensity matches and commendable performances by its favourite football players. INDINEWS.COM, a new online sports portal and the sponsor of FC Goa in Indian Super League 2020, has observed an emerging demographic, growing site visits and increased user-engagement from the country.
The site saw a substantial rise in engagement and growth on its platform during the tournament. With the increased usage of the internet and people embracing technology, especially now more than ever, INDINEWS has gained more traction. People are switching to the portal for exclusive ISL updates and other interesting football content.
ISL is known to be one of the most popular football leagues in the world, driving a more profound engagement amongst the sports fanatics. However, during these unprecedented times, people weren't able to attend matches in-person at the stadium as the league decided games to be staged behind closed doors to prevent the spread of COVID. INDINEWS.COM has helped fill in that gap for sports enthusiasts. This has also positively impacted the brand rapport in the market and further resulted in a substantial uptick in adoption and traction on its website.
INDINEWS spokesperson said, "ISL is a fascinating tournament and has been intriguing its audience intensely. It is enjoying a huge fan following among football enthusiasts and the series of matches which were formerly enjoyed in the stadiums earlier are now being viewed on their own devices. With that, people can get exclusive updates and sports news from the comfort of their homes. This has further resulted in a great surge of engagement on INDINEWS.COM and is inspiring us to continue to elevate the level of sports news in the country and beyond."
INDINEWS.COM is India's Super News Sports Site delivering regular updates of the latest tournaments, matches and events for sports-enthusiasts. By fueling fans' passion for the game and encouraging people to indulge intensely in the spirit of sports, the news portal is steering the future of the country in a bright direction while keeping them informed of the latest sporting events and talking points.
