INDIA — Following a multi-agency pitch, Cult.Sport, from the house of Cure.Fit, one of the fastest-growing sports brands in India, has awarded its integrated creative mandate to Wunderman Thompson India. Cult.Sport is known for its range of everyday sports products in India which includes sportswear, at-home workout equipment, bicycles & nutraceutical. The agency will provide strategic and creative services for the brand, cutting across geographies, demographics, and mind-sets, and delivering differentiated content to create a niche for the brand among sports and the fitness fraternity.
Commenting on this new partnership, Shamik Sharma, MD of Cult.Sport, said “While India has the world’s largest youth population, only a few take up any sports or fitness activity. As a sport-first brand of this country, we want every Indian to make sports an indelible part of their everyday life using our range of Cult.Sport products. In Wunderman Thompson India, we have found an agile agency that understands this sporting culture, which is evident through its award-winning sports films and campaigns. As a team, we plan to up the game and create some clutter-breaking communication for the brand.”
Vijay Jacob Parakkal, Managing Partner for East and South at Wunderman Thompson India, further added, “Amidst the fierce competition in the high-performance sports and fitness market, it’s important to recognize that in India, sports and fitness transcend mere performance – it embodies a way of life.

We are committed to forging a close partnership with our client team to help them achieve their ambitious business objectives. Leveraging our expertise in creative, data, and technology, we are uniquely positioned to provide comprehensive end-to-end solutions tailored to their specific business needs.”
