In 1999 the World Cup in England bought together 4 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 and we identified a need for a supporters group. That commitment was realised in 1999 when the 4 founder members set up the first Official Indian Cricket Supporters Group…The Bharat Army.

For over 14 years now Raks, Shai Harvey and Sukh, 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.

As we enter a new chapter of the Bharat Army in its 14th year supporting Team India we welcome Akshay Loomba our new recruit to the Bharat Army Team. Akshay encompasses all the values required to help us continue to grow the Bharat Army globally, he has a deep passion for cricket, he is tremendously patriotic and most of all an all round good guy! Welcome to the Bharat Army Team Akshay!
