Star Sports to telecast ISL Draft and Auction live

MUMBAI: Star India’s sports broadcaster Star Sports, will telecast the first ever auction of football players in India live and exclusive on Friday, 10 July, 2015 from Mumbai. The Hero Indian Super League (ISL) 2015 domestic player auction and draft will witness the top football talent in the country going under the hammer, with the eight teams bidding aggressively to add the finest Indian football talent to their roster.


The auction will go live at 10 am on Star Sports 2 and Star Sports HD2 and will be anchored by renowned broadcaster and football expert John Dykes. Charlie Ross, resident auctioneer of Gooding and Company, the American vintage automobile auctioneers and for Mac Dougalls, the Russian Fine Art Auction House, will head the auction proceedings for the day. 


Mobile internet advertising will surge at a 23.1 per cent CAGR to 2019, overtaking display internet advertising globally in 2018 and replacing paid search in the US by 2016 as the leading internet advertising category. Global video advertising spend which is also expected to rise at a CAGR of 19.5 per cent will be catalyzed by a near-doubling of global smartphone connections to 3.85billion in the said year. 


This rapid rise in mobile and internet video advertising calls for media companies to offer both native and programmatory inventory of their advertising portfolios, taking into consideration the timescales and skills set of these two varied mediums which need different management.


The auction will be followed by a domestic draft with 114 players available for selection in the second season of the Hero Indian Super League.


The auction and draft day telecast will begin with a special in-depth analysis on Star Sports 2 and Star Sports HD 2 on what to expect at the auction and draft. Star Sports presenter Seema Jaswal along with former footballers and experts Paul Masefield and Bengaluru FC coach Ashley Westwood will be a part of the pre-auction show.  A special one hour wrap up show featuring all the action from the day long auction will broadcast between 10:30 pm – 11:30 pm on Star Sports 4 & Star Sports HD4.
