MUMBAI: LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network in association with ESPN, the one-stop destination for all things sports, concluded the first season of LinkedIn ESPN Office Sports Quiz with team BigBasket winning the finale. The contest witnessed tough competition between corporates, with BigBasket surging ahead at the last question to list the trophy.

All the episodes of the quiz are available on ESPN India, ESPNcricinfo, social media platforms – ESPN.in Facebook, ESPN.in Instagram, ESPNcricinfo Facebook, ESPNcricinfo Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn Network.

Gaurav Kapur, a renowned television presenter, and the quizmaster for the three semi-finals and final, said, “I used to think I knew my sports thoroughly until I anchored the LinkedIn ESPN Office Sports Quiz. During the quiz, I thanked my stars for being on the other side of the table as this is one of the toughest contest I have been a part of and can safely say that this show has helped me enhance my knowledge of sporting trivia. My best wishes to the BigBasket boys, for stealing the trophy from team GyaanSpace on the finals straight.”

Team BigBasket participants Rohit Suresh and Shriram Sundararajan are now set to travel to England in October to watch an English Football League match live from the stadium. Both Rohit Suresh & Shriram Sundararajan expressed great enthusiasm at winning the quiz. Avid sports fans and athletes themselves, the duo claimed that their preparation for the quiz primarily comprised of watching sports on television and following ESPN and ESPNcricinfo regularly.

Akshaya Kolhe, Head of Sales, ESPN, said, “At ESPN we strive to constantly tap into the whole spectrum of our sports fan base through concerted efforts to diversify our engagement and content, using different channels and formats. This partnership with LinkedIn has been a fruitful one for us as we were both able to harness our reach and scale to provide true sport fans with a platform to test their knowledge and demonstrate their passion for sports.”

LinkedIn ESPN Office Sports Quiz is an effort to unite sports enthusiasts from different walks of life and in different stages of their careers through their passion for sports. Participants of all age groups representing reputed organizations spanning Information & technology, Banking, e-tailing, Edutainment and other sectors from across Indian cities were united through their passion for sports during this quiz. The participants were put through rigorous online qualifying rounds, semi-finals and final across three weeks, that culminated with team BigBasket taking home the coveted trophy.
