Amitabh Bachchan, the most revered face and voice of Indian cinema, globally, announced that he will be co-owner of the OUE Singapore Slammers alongside the local company UD Group who acquired the team earlier this year.
A massive tennis fan who has travelled the world to watch some of the best in action, his excitement is palpable as he can't wait to get involved, “My work schedule allows me to only be there for one day, but I'm confident the Singapore Slammers will be playing in the final. I'm also really looking forward to hanging out with members of our clan, the #SlammersNation. I'd like to invite my fans and tennis fans alike to come spend the day with me at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.”
Mr. Bachchan will make a courtside on the 20th of December at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on the final day of the season. He will also be interacting with fans during the course of the day.
Chairman Prateek Gupta said, “For us, the IPTL and the OUE Singapore Slammers is as much about entertaining the fans as it is about winning that trophy. In Mr. Bachchan, we found a kindred spirit who believes in that aim. Moreover, his commitment to the sport of tennis means that he will be a crucial driver of our Junior Slammers program as well. We look forward to creating a winning team with a true Indian icon.”
