Let's Welcome the RCB Fan Advisory Board!
The first event of the calendar: RCB Fan Summit 2012 was held on 28th January, 2012. The vision behind this Summit was the RCB mantra: "For the fans; by the fans". 20 fans were invited from across India; The invite was based on their innovative ideas to invite new fans and engage the fans and also, their dedication to work for the RCB Fan Club.
After the exciting round of welcome by B Sridhar (who played MC for the afternoon), the fans were divided into 4 categories of their interest: Contests, Meet-ups, Bloggers and Recruitment. After an hour-long brain-storming session, the fans collectively put forward their ideas for the Club. These were discussed, framed and also measured on feasibility for the implementation.
And what a day it was…! Saturday, 28th January, 2012. It is going to stay in my memory for a very long time…

The Fan Summit 2012 proved fruitful for both, the fans and the Club. The Fan Advisory Board was formed and will soon kick into action running and managing the massive RCB Fan Club. Keeping in mind the motive of RCB: Born in Bangalore; to thrill India, the ideas were crafted to take the Club to become the most engaging Fan Club in India.This was followed by the official launch party for IPL 5. The party showcased the first ever 3D projection show at UB city. It was attended by the fans and 5 local RCB players along with our mentor, Anil Kumble. The perfect end for the perfect day..
He, along with the fab members of the Fan Advisory Board, plot new schemes to engage with fans and trouble shoot their problems.
