GoDaddy’s partnership with BWF continues the company’s collaborations with sport. GoDaddy has been associated with prominent sports celebrities and numerous sporting events. In India, GoDaddy has been associated with cricket, in various formats, by sponsoring the 3 match Home T20 series vs Sri Lanka in Dec 2017, and 5 Test match Home series vs England in November/December 2016. GoDaddy has also been a sponsor of the Tata Mumbai Marathon and the Procam Airtel Delhi Marathon over the past year.
 
Badminton is the second most played sport in India. Some of the country’s leading Badminton players including Saina Nehwal, P.V. Sindhu, and Srikanth Kidambi, among others, come from Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities across the country, which is a hub of emerging talent pool and also the place where the next wave of digital growth lies. These inspiring personalities epitomize the dreams and ambition of almost every small town Indian who aspires to become successful. Partnering with BWF aligns well with our goal of helping people realize their dreams, by helping them take their ideas online with our easy-to-use and affordable tools and services,” said Nikhil Arora, Vice President and Managing Director, GoDaddy India.
