In a first of its kind award function, to honour die-hard fans of cricket at the 2019 ICC World Cup, Sachin Tendulkar’s biggest fan, Sudhir Kumar Gautam will be a recipient of the award along with four others at the Eccles Town Hall in Manchester with the cricket legend himself. The award function is part of an initiative by the Indian Sports Fan (ISF).

An elated Sudhir told IANS, "After 18 years, 319 ODIs, 66 Test, 73 T20s, 68 IPLs and three Ranji Trophy matches, I can confirm being a sports fan is solitary, arduous and yet a rewarding task.

(I am) Gratified that I have inspired many on the path of fandom and Global Sports Fan Awards is a big recognition at the global level. I dedicate this medal to my God, inspiration and my reason for my global recognition, Sir Sachin Tendulkar."

UK-based Indian Sports Fan representative, Kuldeep Ahlawat said, "Indian Sports Fan has emerged out of passion connecting all fans from across the world. Revering fans is our greatest endeavour and Global Sports Fan Awards is the reflection of it. For the first time ever, we have come out with a concept to honour the biggest and greatest fans which in itself is a historic moment.”

The award function is in recognition of individual contribution of fans who have spent over a decade in serving their favourite teams. The award will host five jury awards including three upcoming fan categories, all pertaining to individual efforts in fandom.
