New Delhi: Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports has launched a special mobile application for the Khelo India Youth Games 2022 to ensure that participating athletes, coaches, support staff, parents of athletes and officials from all states participating in the Games have access to all information about the Games, on a click of a button.
This is the first time that a dedicated App has been launched for the Khelo India Youth Games.The App has a dedicated athlete login and supports the athlete right from the time of his or her registration into the games, through the entire course of the Games.
The app gives the athlete a chance to check if his or her verified documents have been uploaded, before the start of the Games. This will ensure greater transparency for athletes in the registration process.
As he or she registers for the games and arrives at the Games venues in Madhya Pradesh, the athlete can check the status of the issuance of their sporting kits, the hotel in which the athlete has to stay, transportation plan for athletes to and from the venue, as well as have important contact numbers where athletes can connect in case of an emergency.
Further, to ensure that athletes have immediate responses to query raised by them during the Games, a Whatsapp Chatbot has also been created.
For sports fans, the App gives access to match schedules, medal tally, address of Games venues and photo gallery.
The App is available both for Android and Apple phones and can be downloaded free of cost.
