Ten Sports registered an astonishing 51% viewership rating among all sports viewers, last quarter ended June 30, 2012. The sports business industry in India is considered one of the fastest growing sports industries in the world.

Ed Goren joins the EFLI saying:

"I am looking forward to working with Ten Sports as I did with CBS and FOX. My intention is to help the EFLI become one of the most recognizable brands in India's young, vibrant and growing sports industry.

It is an extraordinary opportunity to work with the number one sports broadcaster, (Ten Sports), in a market that is five times larger than that of the United States with relatively speaking much less competition from other Indian branded sports leagues. I feel our timing of entry is right. As we move forward some of these young men will be the future stars of the EFLI. Ultimately, I appreciate the philanthropic vision that permeates the EFLI.

As exciting as the launch of the EFLI is to me, I'm equally as excited about the opportunity the league is providing for young men in India to get started playing Flag, High School and College Football."
