IVM Podcasts curates sports podcast show - FOOTBALL SHOOTBALL
The first episode is set to air on Wednesday, prior to the commencement of the English Premier League
IVM Podcasts has conceptualised and is all set to unveil a one of its kind sports podcast show- FOOTBALL SHOOTBALL.
The show has been carefully planned as not just another conventional journalistic based football podcast, but as a quirky, sitcom-ish yet insightful show with a small teaspoon of sarcasm and a rather large tablespoon of unhinged banter.
It is meant to mirror conversations that everyday football buffs have amongst each other rather than imitate banal panel discussions. With its Bollywood-isque take on ‘Football’ by three quipping fans and friends, Football Shootball promises to be a relatable and easy on the ear fun sports show which will appeal to varied audiences and not merely the ‘club-crest-tattooed-on-the-arm’ fans with the promise of - pretend psychic predictions, hot controversies, eccentric commentaries and much more.
The first episode is set to air on Wednesday, prior to the commencement of the EPL (English Premier League). The hosts and ‘dosts’ - Gaurav Sapre, Sivaram Parameswaran and Kartik Iyer are all geared up to kick-off their maiden podcast. The makers at IVM Podcasts go to great lengths in selecting the right hosts for the right content; a deciding factor which makes or breaks a good podcast show. The three hosts are a fun bunch, each a unique character and have followed the game for over 15 years - exhibiting just the right amount of frenzy, feverish fanboying and idiosyncrasies.
While Gaurav dreams of starting a semi-pro Foosball league in India, his adoration and fanaticism for football is what got him to host the show. Sivaram, is a marketer by day and a self-proclaimed 'Arsenal's fourth biggest fan' by night. He's worked with some notable football portals in the past and continues to share his opinion with anyone who is willing to listen. The trio is completed by Karthik Iyer, who is currently working as a content creator at ESPN and is a storyteller with an eye for the dramatic.
Speaking on the launch of the new show, Amit Doshi, Founder of IVM Podcasts says, “With India being a country that is so passionate about sports, the idea was to bring forth a show that is specially focussed towards Football. We wanted to bring together a team that understands and enjoys football, and would be glad to create content for an audience that would not only enjoy watching football, but also enjoy listening to all the fan frenzy and enthusiasm that comes along with it.”
Kavita Rajwade, Co-founder of IVM Podcasts says, “Cricket is India’s religion, but fans of football are in a special league of their own. The sport has die-hard followers who talk, bicker, predict, speculate and dissect the game apart from just watching the sport ritually and unrelentingly. While I’m not a football fan I really wanted to create a way of reaching out to a wider sports fan base and what better way than Bollywood, one of the country great unifiers, create an inclusive dialogue that could reach audiences beyond the football nerds. Football-Shootball is a show which not only talks to the community but symbolises the crazed passion of its fans – which are our carefully picked hosts.”
