India International cricketer Deepak Chahar is entering the gaming space with fantasy game platform TFG (Trade Fantasy Game). The venture marks his debut in the entrepreneurial space as the Co-founder along with wife Jaya Chahar who will serve as the CEO of JCDC Sports Pvt Ltd. Deepak Chahar, who will also play the role of the brand ambassador, will look to connect and engage with his fan base of over 5 million users across platforms.

JCDC Sports Pvt. Ltd. is a sports technology company established in March 2022 and is headquartered in Delhi. The company aims to reach 1 million users by FY24 and introduce 2 new features in the next 2 quarters to increase reach and engagement leading to larger user acquisitions.

I hope to leverage my knowledge of cricket and harness technology to reach out to millions while connecting and engaging with them and adding value to the sport and the cricketing ecosystem as well.”

Commenting on the new venture, Jaya Chahar, Founder & CEO, JCDC Sports, said “The gaming industry has been witnessing fast paced growth and seeing a rise in gamers daily.
