Pro-Kabaddi League team Bengaluru Bulls confirmed today that they have partnered with a UK based sports tech startup, Fanmode, to be their ‘Fan Involvement partners’ for the upcoming season.

The partnership will see Bengaluru Bulls fans be provided with an exclusive app (Bengaluru Bulls Vibecast APP) through which they can not only follow their team with live match updates and social feed, but also cheer for them in real time, they said in a release.

The league is scheduled to kick off on January 30 and Bulls will start their campaign against Dabang Delhi on the opening day.

“Building and maintaining a fan-base is extremely important for us and we believe that Fanmode will help us a great deal in doing that.

“Very excited to have partnered with Fanmode and have an app exclusively for our fans,” Bengaluru Bulls General Manager Akhil Ranade said.

Stating that through the Vibecast App, fans will be able to ‘high-five’ each other, wave their team flag and cheer their team from wherever they are during a match, Bengaluru Bulls said the cheers would appear in Kanteerva Stadium, when the team plays in Bengaluru, as well as on their official website and Facebook page in real time for the whole PKL Season 3.

The idea behind this was to try and bring the fans closer to their teams and each other, the release added.
