Saran Sports Launches Match Poker To Corporate India

by Donna Amo Posted on 27 Jan, 2021

Mumbai: The International Federation of Match Poker (IFMP) and it’s official Indian member federation, Match Poker India, have entered into an agreement with Saran Sports to launch Match Poker into the corporates.

Since 1996, Saran Sports has always believed in introducing new concepts for the benefit of their corporate clients. Over 2,000 corporate teams and 28,000 corporate employees have participated in various sports championships over the years and across India. These activities act as a great leveler, motivating employees across the organization and serve as a stress-free forum for relaxed interaction amongst corporate executives – far removed from the tensions of the workplace.

We are proud to present for the first time in India, the sport of Match Poker, a fully recognized mind sport in an esports wrapper. This team sport is played digitally, on mobile devices or tablets, and is free of conventional playing cards or chips.

Match Poker has been formally recognized as a sport since 2017, is a signatory to the World Anti-Doping (WADA) code and is played by over 60 national federations across six continents. The sport is all about data and analysis, ensuring luck is not a deciding factor in determining the winner. It is played as a mind sport and game of skill worldwide, with individuals of all ages and genders competing on a level playing field.

Many companies are now successfully using gamification to help in a whole range of HR requirements including, employer branding, recruitment, on-boarding and employee engagement, internal training, salesforce motivation, leadership and team building. In this context gamification, and specifically Match Poker, can be an effective strategic tool for HR related activities as it can have a great impact on skills improvement and has a tremendous power of influencing people’s behaviour.

Patrick Nally, President of IFMP, commented “IFMP is delighted to be forming a partnership with Saran Sports. Sanjiv has a long-term track record of organizing successful and engaging corporate events. As a recognized digital sport, Match Poker can really help corporates, even more so during this COVID 19 impacted environment, to embrace innovative staff and customer relationship opportunities.”

Sanjiv Saran Mehra, Managing Director of Saran Sports, said “Saran Sports is excited to introduce this wonderful mind sport of Match Poker to Corporate India, with all the benefits it offers I have no doubt we will see a very positive response. Being a digital and extremely fun sport, it proves to be even more relevant in today’s world and will certainly help with bringing out the best in an organization’s workforce and performance.”

Varun Goenka, President of Match Poker India, commented “I am thrilled to introduce this incredible mind sport to Corporate India! Match Poker is a skill-based team sport and will add tremendous value to all participating companies. Not only will it help develop numerous relevant skills for its employees but will also help them perform better and work together in a more efficient and cohesive manner. Most of all, being a mental sport, it allows the entire workforce to come together and participate with men and women of all ages having the chance to compete on a sporting platform and is just so much fun to play!”
