A Day in the Life of a Panther
On 7th June, Jaipur Pink Panthers will take fans on a never seen before journey with the team, with owner Abhishek Bachchan doing a series of live broadcasts on Periscope through the day to share stories from the team’s training camp and help fans connect to the people that make Jaipur Pink Panthers tick. Here is a Periscope video from earlier.
Using the proprietary Twitter Challenger app, Jaipur Pink Panthers will throw daily Twitter video based challenges between players, fans and owners. These can range from sport related challenges like the number of push-ups a player can do in 30 seconds to light hearted challenges. This will give Pink Panthers fans an opportunity to view and participate in the custom activations of their team every day leading up to and into the season. Here is one from today:
