ViratKohli.club Will Be New Home to Millions of Sports Star's Fans
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL and NEW DELHI, INDIA -- (Marketwired) -- Virat Kohli, world cricket star and captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise in the Indian Premier League, announced today the launch of his new website at ViratKohli.club. This is the first dedicated website launched by Kohli, who expects many of his more than 18 million Facebook fans and Twitter followers to come to the site for updated weekly tips and training videos, stats, a photo gallery, a timeline with live social media feeds and more.
"Cricket is one of the world's most popular sports, and we're incredibly pleased that Virat Kohli has chosen a .club domain name to launch his first-ever official website," said Colin Campbell, president and CEO of .CLUB Domains. "A celebrity's website should be all about their fans and community so a .club web address is a natural fit for anybody with a fan following or membership base. Having such an international star with millions of fans all over the world is a great opportunity to show the brand power and marketing benefits of a .club address."
Kohli was a key factor during India's World Cup triumph in 2011, where he struck vital centuries in the tournament. His achievements on and off the field have been recognized and he received the ICC ODI Player of the year award in 2012 and 2014 and was rated by SportsPro as the 2nd most marketable athlete in the world. His gung-ho attitude, youthful charm and his determination have led to him becoming the captain of his IPL team, the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2013 IPL season. Virat Kohli also won Man of the Tournament award in ICC World T20, 2014.
"I'm excited to launch my official website at ViratKohli.club. With so many things going on in my life it made sense to have a dedicated online destination to share tips and updates and interact with my fans," said Kohli. "It was a natural fit to choose a .club name over any other because I want my loyal fans to know they're indeed part of my club."
Other superstars, including legendary rapper, actor and entrepreneur 50 Cent and singer Demi Lovato have also launched their fan sites at 50InDa.Club and Lovato.club, along with thousands of global brands, subscription-based services, loyalty clubs, country clubs, nightclubs, and many more. .CLUB has quickly grown to be the #1 selling new generic top-level domain (gTLD) and has more live sites in the Alexa top 1 million websites than any other new top level domain name, according to data compiled by Namestat.org.
