myFanPark will soon launch in India, allowing fans to connect with those they admire most, in a personal and authentic manner. Entrepreneur Shailendra Singh will be launching the India franchise.

Messages from famous sport stars and entertainment icons are becoming the new way that people surprise, spoil and treat each other - be it to congratulate a friend on their birthday or wedding, encouraging a student as they prepare for exams, or wishing an aspiring sport star good luck ahead of a big game.

 Shailendra Singh has successfully launched 23 companies in 23 years, not to mention managing the careers of Sourav Ganguly, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Kapil Dev and having many celebrity brand associations with the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Hritik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, Salman Khan and many more: “Connecting fans to their heroes and giving them the opportunity to experience the sheer excitement of getting a personalised message from their idol is incredibly powerful and something I just had to be a part of. The launch of myFanPark in India is a massive opportunity for us to unlock the positive power that our local heroes possess to uplift, inspire and motivate their fans on a personal level.”

 myFanPark Chairman, Iain Banner, adds: “America has already seen the incredible opportunity and success with Chicago based Cameo, a similar platform that includes 18,000 celebrities and famous faces from predominantly American pop culture, sport and social influencers. We believe the scale and opportunity in the Indian market for myFanPark will exceed that of Cameo in America, who was valued at $300 million dollars after closing $50 million in a Series B funding in 2019.”

Singh recently returned from South Africa where he met the myFanPark founding team Jean de Villiers, Dylan Des Fountain, Wouter Lombard and CEO Joy Des Fountain, who echoed Singh’s excitement: “We can’t wait to introduce myFanPark to the Indian market, giving Indians around the world access to their favourite stars”
