LinkedIn in association with ESPN launched the LinkedIn ESPN Office Sports Quiz for working professionals.

The consumer insights gathered by ESPN indicate that sport has been one of the top discussion topics amongst white-collar business professionals. The multisport LinkedIn ESPN Office Sports Quiz is an attempt to provide a platform to these discerning sports fans in offices and workspaces to demonstrate their sports knowledge, unique skills as a team, passion for sport and get rewarded for it.

“People often find inspiration for their personal and professional lives from the sports they follow. We are really excited to partner with ESPN for the Office Sports quiz, to see our members collaborate with each other, enjoy a common interest, and spur a sense of community at the workplace. At LinkedIn, we believe in helping our members become better professionals and this is an interesting way to encourage passions, connections, and conversations beyond the workplace,” said Srividya Gopani, Director - Brand and Consumer Marketing, APAC and China at LinkedIn.

The registrations for this joint initiative for corporates across the country are open. The winning team will get an all-expense paid trip to England to watch an English Football League match live from the stadium.

The quiz comprises two rounds. The first round will be conducted online over three weeks on followed by the second round including semi-final and final to be played offline on July 17, 2019, in Mumbai.

To be eligible to participate in the quiz, the applicants will have to form a team of two within the same organization. The applicants can register in any of the three weeks but will have to play the quiz any day within that particular week.

Gaurav Kapur, a popular television presenter, actor, and ex-IPL host will anchor the second round. The on-ground show will be shot in a full-blown studio with multi-cam set up to produce full HD quality video content and rolled out on ESPN platforms, and ESPNcricinfo.

Akshaya Kolhe, Head of Sales, ESPN, said, “ESPN is continually engaging with sports fans through various interactive shows and engaging fun content to keep their passion for sports alive. We all have grown up participating in quiz competitions and sports quizzes, it is our attempt to bring back the same flavour and competitiveness for the present-day fans. By making it multi-sports including cricket, our attempt is to tap the ever-increasing multisport interest in India.”
