Several members of the audience walked away with coveted prizes such as Dockers® merchandise, Titan watches and Mont Blanc pens. This event has been conceived and promoted by Fountainhead Promotions & Events Pvt. Ltd., one of India's leading event management firms.

"Everyone enjoyed being competitive over sports, deciding who is the better sports buff," said Sanjay Gangopadhyay, Dockers® Marketing Manager, Levi Strauss (India) Pvt Ltd, "instead of who has the larger market share in their business. While a good time was had by all, it also revealed why it is that the links between business houses and sports run so deep - it's because everyone loves a good game in any sport. We plan to make this an annual event and hope that many more teams participate in the years to come."

"Quizzing has been a hot favourite with Corporations, as a proven format that relaxes the mind while stimulating the brain. So, a combination of quizzing and sport is a concept whose time has come." says Brian Tellis, Director, Fountainhead Promotions & Events Pvt. Ltd. Fountainhead Promotions & Events Pvt. Ltd., one of India's leading event management firms has to its credits mega-events such as the Brand Equity Quiz, The Smirnoff Fashion Awards and Yes - The Spirit Of Triumph.

All those eager to pit their brains against one another, indulging their fascination with the sports have jumped into the fray!
