IPL franchise Gujarat Titans launched Junior Titans, a sports program for school children in Ahmedabad on Saturday. The first event in the program, which was held in the grounds of Calorx Olive International School, had 300 children from 28 schools in the city participating. Over the next two months, Junior Titans will travel to Vadodara, Surat, Rajkot, and other major cities in Gujarat during the weekends.
“This program is not meant to select future cricketers,” says Arvinder Singh, Chief Operating Officer of the Gujarat Titans IPL Cricket franchise. “It is a series of fun events that will create some excitement around the Gujarat Titans brand name.”
The Junior Titans format invites schools to send a delegation of up to 25 students for a 100-minute session where they get to try out the latest cricket and football training methods, which includes batting against a bowling operating machine. They also get to participate in quizzes, where they are asked questions about the Gujarat Titans. The venue has a gallery that narrates the history of the home team in pictures, since it was founded in 2022.
The institutions participating in the Junior Titans program on Saturday were from all over Ahmedabad and included private as well as government schools. There are also a few batches who were not from any school, but were organised by NGOs. Transportation to the venue for all Junior Titan events was taken care of by Gujarat Titans.
Junior Titans is a joint initiative between Gujarat Titans and Spanish Football League Laliga, both of which are owned by CVC Capital Partners, a Luxembourg headquartered private equity firm.
