The FICCI was the first national chamber of commerce to establish a dedicated sports division under the aegis of sports committee. It was instrumental in bringing the focus of India Inc. to the erstwhile unexplored territory of sports.

The FICCI was the first national chamber of commerce to establish a dedicated sports division under the aegis of sports committee. It was instrumental in bringing the focus of India Inc. to the erstwhile unexplored territory of sports.

FICCI believes that sports development can take an accelerated growth path with more stakes of India Inc in the sector. However, it is important to have an industry friendly policy for the sports sector and develop sports infrastructure in the country to enable India to compete internationally and achieve greater success and performance in sports.
