“Second most marketable athlete in the world” to use a .club domain

Virat Kohli, a famous Indian cricketer, is .CLUB Domains’ latest star anchor tenant.

He’s launching his first ever official web site, at viratkohli.club, today.

No, I’ve never heard of him either, but he’s been called the “second most marketable athlete in the world” after Lewis Hamilton by SportsPro, a UK sports marketing business-to-business magazine.

The 26-year-old has captained the Indian national side and holds various records in the world of cricket.

Just yesterday, he became “the first batsman to score 1000 ODI runs in a calendar year for four years in a row”, which is probably very impressive if you know what it means.

He has almost 4.5 million Twitter followers and over 18 million Facebook “likes”, which means his links to his new site, should he choose to post any, will reach a wide audience in nations where cricket is popular.

His adoption of .club, which seems to be a result of a deal with .CLUB, follows the launch of 50 Cent’s 50inda.club. Singer Demi Lovato also has a .club for her official site, apparently purchased of her own volition.

    He probably got a cricket bouncer from .Club Domains LLC, the registry which he could not play because the ball was not a cricket ball and instead it was crunched dollar bill$ / note$ tied around with rubberbands so he was tempted or encouraged to pocket it for the down payment towards the cricket night school. He is hoping his Indian fans will forgive his disloyalty to the national .in and .bharat domain suffixes.
