In 1999 the World Cup in England bought together four founder members of The Bharat Army, from different parts of England they would watch cricket passionately and follow the Indian Cricket Team around the world.

The World Cup in 1999 was only the beginning…

As a result of their continuing support following Team India around the the world, a friendship formed which also identified a need for a supporters group. That commitment was realised in 1999 when the four founder members set up the first Official Indian Cricket Supporters Group…The Bharat Army.

For over 18 years now, The Bharat Army travelled regularly to cricketing venues around the world to support their beloved Team India. Over the years The Bharat Army has continued to grow its patriotic band of loyal supporters and become recognised by Team India and the global cricketing media as the Official Team India Supporters Group Globally.

Bharat Army Mission Statement

To be recognised as the Official Indian Cricket Supporters Group Globally providing a unique innovative voice, committed passionately in support of all Indian Cricket Teams. Their Support and loyalty to Team India will be unrivalled – Win, Lose or Draw.
