'Super Selector' sets world record as 100,000 sign on

ESPN Star Sports Super Selector, the interactive game show launched on September 21, has set a world record for the number of entries received for any similar on-line game, available data indicates. The total number of teams registered on-line by the cricket fans in just nine days for the October game are over 100,000.

With this, Super Selector has also set the 'World Record' for the fastest "sign-up" rate for any similar on-line game in the world, a company release says. Overall 102,467 cricket fans registered their teams on-line with maximum entries across India coming from west India (31,147) followed by south India (29,680), north India (20,125), and central India (4,117). It has also received 7,121 international entries. The total page views for the Super Selector page on the website total 1.44 million!

Manu Sawhney, managing director of ESPN Software India Ltd. said: "We are overwhelmed by the phenomenal consumer response to the ESPN STAR Sports Super Selector. We always believed that Super Selector was a winning concept. The India cricket season begins on October 5 with the India tour of South Africa, and we only expect the participation number to grow exponentially."

"By setting a world record in just nine days of registration, it proves beyond doubt that Super Selector is the perfect platform for millions of cricket fans to extend their involvement and enhance the enjoyment of the game much beyond the live coverage of international cricket," he said.

Super Selector is sponsored by Peter England, Suzuki Fiero and Kingfisher.
