MPL Sports Foundation, the community arm of Mobile Premier
League (MPL), is the Principal Partner of the Indian OIympic Association (IOA).
As MPL Sports Foundation began a nationwide movement to
mobilise a billion plus Indian to become fans for the Indian Olympic team, MPL
decided to use this moment to let its people soak in the Olympic spirit.
A virtual Olympics is being held by MPL for its 800 strong
workforce, ending on 8th August, the last day of the Olympics.
In a true democratic spirit, a voting exercise was conducted
to vote in the favourite events. Expectedly, an esports tournament was the
overwhelming crowd favourite as the top choice. The events that will be part of
the internal Olympics include 5K virtual run and a 20K virtual cycling. The
very active group of runners and cyclists at MPL ensured that these two events
remained centre stage.
Looks like exciting times at MPL even as the team remains mostly virtual owing to covid restrictions.
