Leo Burnett Orchard wins creative duties of fantasy sports platform, Dream11

Leo Burnett Orchard, the Leo Group India’s full service creative agency, has won the creative mandate for sports tech start up, Dream11. Fantasy Sports, one of Dream11’s specialised offerings, is a game of skill that offers Indian sports fans a platform to showcase their knowledge. Fans can create their own team of real-life players from upcoming matches, score points based on their on-field performance and compete with other fans. The brand recently announced MS Dhoni as its brand ambassador.

As part of its new duties, Leo Burnett Orchard will partner Dream11 for all of its sports tie-ups, and will help consumers realise the joy of fantasy sports. There was no multi-agency pitch involved in the assignment of the creative mandate.

Speaking about bringing Leo Burnett Orchard on board, Vikrant Mudaliar, CMO, Dream11, said, "We found in Leo Burnett Orchard a team that understood the vision and need for our brand – Dream11. The team's understanding of our category coupled with their creative ideas, proved Leo Burnett Orchard to be worthy partners for this stage of our brand's journey. We are happy to start this association."

Dream11 has been growing exponentially over the last one year, with over 2 crore Indians signing up to play fantasy cricket, football, kabaddi, and for the first time in the country, basketball.

Speaking about the partnership with Dream11, Mahuya Chaturvedi, Chief Operating Officer, Leo Burnett Orchard, said, “We are extremely proud and energized with this win. Dream11 is a leader in building Fantasy Sports in our country and we are proud partners in developing this category. Our strength of being a young, energetic team, with a mix of big ideas and aggressive digital content creation helped us win this account. As we scale Leo Burnett Orchard, a diverse set of brands and categories, coupled with new age marketing and communication skills, will pave a blazing way ahead for us.”
