In an endeavour to connect sports fans and engage them during live sporting events socially, Rooter app is launched on Android and iOS platforms. First of its kind, this app offers sports fans across the world a single platform that meets their need for live interaction and engagement during the most exciting games. The key differentiator of the platform is the unique Live match prediction game that engages fans during a Live match and also connects them with fans in their vicinity. 

A first-of-its-kind, mobile-based platform, Rooter is the brainchild of two sports enthusiasts – Piyush (Founder & CEO) and Soham Sinha (Co-founder & CTO) – who decided to bridge the gap in the sports fan engagement market through a unique tech product. The platform will offer sports fans a chance to connect with one another across real and virtual worlds through social interactions and gamification from devices they are constantly connected to.

Speaking on the launch, Piyush, Founder & CEO, Rooter said, “Being passionate sports fans ourselves, we felt there was a pressing need for something which helped us connect with other like-minded individuals in real-time… while the sporting action is on. Our unique and disruptive prediction game during live matches is poised to completely disrupt the way sports engagement takes place across the globe. By making sports consumption more enthralling than ever before, Rooter is not just going to be an absolute delight for serious sports lovers but is sure to spike the interest levels of the hitherto casual viewer. We are very excited about the launch of our app and are looking forward to the difference it makes in the global sports viewership and engagement experience.”     

Rooter enables real-time engagement leading to high-octane excitement for viewers. It also creates the opportunity for sports teams, clubs and players across the world to enjoy a higher number of loyalists.     
Besides the prediction game, users can also discover other fans around, chat either individually or on Live Match Forums during matches, play pre-match quizzes and win prizes every day. 

Designed as an Indian app for the global sports fan, Rooter’s primary emphasis will be on the world’s favourite sport, Football and the most popular sport in India, Cricket. In Football, Rooter will be covering all European football leagues aside from Indian Super League (ISL). Rooter will also cover Tennis matches including Grand Slams and ATP tournaments. The platform will also soon have other niche sports such as F1 and NBA. This will provide Indian sports enthusiasts a chance to interact with their peers and revel in their passion for their preferred sports. 

Rooter also recently received angel funding in the round that was led by renowned Bollywood star Boman Irani and Enabled by Kwan Entertainment Pvt. Ltd
