Hiring Sport Administrators

Our country is one of the most populous in the world. We are emerging as one of the fastest growing economies with a varied and young population. We are transforming from a country shackled by the past into one that is defining the future for the world. Our citizens have gained eminence in their chosen fields across the globe in every field known to mankind. Sports is one such area. For a country with a rich heritage of success in various fields, we are only starting to recognise the value of sport in every day life. Sports academies are sprouting in every city, a breeding ground for children and young adults to train and improve their game in pursuit of personal and ultimately, national glory. Our athletes have been gradually improving their performances on the global stage, emerging from decades of falling short. The potential for us to dominate on the world stage purely based on the talent available is unparalleled. In a country that is obsessed with a colonial era sport, sports persons in other disciplines are improving with modern facilities and coaching methodologies. We have steadily increased our medal tally at the Olympic games over the years, although still short of the doubt digit mark.

Position Overview

We are hiring a team who will be responsible for administering the sport in the country. The team will establish programs that will drive the growth of the sport starting at a grassroots level. Working independently, you will be a hands-on leader with experience in politics and with a good fan following owing to your clout. You will build a money-making, powerful sporting structure, which will capture the imagination of the public.

Your desired qualifications

  • You will be a male political leader
  • Your declared net worth will be in the top 1% of the country
  • Your undeclared net worth will be, well, shown off in close circles
  • You will have a set of honchos who will do as you bid
  • You will be an established, prominent figure in lending your name and fortune to sports meets in your area of influence
  • You will be firmly, unapologetically (as in everything else) patriarchal
  • Your “reach” will be until the highest offices in the country
  • You will have little experience in having played or participated in the sport in any capacity at any level
  • You will be generous with your time and money towards those who will transform and augment your followers
  • Your face has adorned posters in major towns and cities – put up by loyalists who are celebrating birthdays, visits and house warming ceremonies
  • You are an orthodox, God-fearing person
  • You believe in social and organisational hierarchies, especially when it suits your ends
  • You have a strong business sense with a history of having lead organisations to profitability
  • You are insensitive to any gender-specific needs

Preferred qualifications

  • A family history of participation in politics at a state or national level
  • Criminal history of any sort will be overlooked
  • Violence plays a part in many sports such as wrestling, boxing, fencing, etc. An undocumented or documented history of violence is no bar
  • Bullying at all levels. If you are applying and are over 30 years of age, you are already a winner
  • Nepotism is in your blood


  • A chance of a lifetime to catapult your career to the top echelons of power in the country
  • Personal growth in fortunes will see no end
  • Ego will be massaged by athletes, their parents and their well-wishers
  • All expenses paid international travel for you and your loved ones
  • A seat at the table with top business houses in the country (who will invest in the sport with a genuine interest) will provide an opportunity to further your business interests
  • Media attention when you need it

We are proud to be an Unequal Opportunity Employer. We will discriminate on the basis of race, colour, religion, sex, national and state origin, age and any other criterion as decided by the Decision Committee. If interested, please do not bother applying. These descriptions do not apply to the ideal candidate.

Residing in Bengaluru, I am a Techie by profession and a thinker and doer by birth. I muse about any topic under the sun and love to share my thoughts in print when I am not doing something with them. I love reading and at some point, thought that maybe others would like to read what I have to write, too!
