With the novel Coronavirus scare reaching Delhi, the Federation of Indian Fantasy Sports (FIFS) has announced that GamePlan 2020, a fantasy sports conference, will be rescheduled.
The conference was scheduled to be held on 5th March at Le Meridien, New Delhi.
FIFS has emailed all the attendees that due to the recent developments related Coronavirus, they are forced to reschedule GamePlan 2020. The decision to defer the event has been made keeping in mind the health and safety of all the delegates and stakeholders planning to attend the event. The email from FIFS to its attendees said, ‘it is important that we do not put them (delegates and stakeholders) at risk and further spread of the virus.’
The revised date of GamePlan2020 will be shared shortly, according to the organisers of the event.
As per a report in economics times, the ministry of health said, “One positive case of Covid-19 has been detected in New Delhi, and one has been detected in Telangana. Both the patients are stable and being closely monitored.”
GamePlan 2020 was to offer a platform to stakeholders across related industries to strengthen and support the growth of Fantasy Sports. This year, GamePlan was expected to be attended by 250+ delegates including operators like Dream11, MyTeam11 and My11Circle. NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant was to be the keynote speaker and chief guest at the event, and India TV Editor-in-Chief Rajat Sharma was supposed to be the guest of honour.
It is unclear if GamePlan, when rescheduled, would have the same speakers and agenda.
