First published on July 15, 1978,  Sportstar – from The Hindu stable – is the longest-standing and the most-popular multi-sport magazine in India.

Living up to our rich tradition, Sportstarlive, launched on the worldwide web in October 2015, is contemporary, relevant and provides round-the-clock news. Retaining the core values of the print publication, the web edition continues to produce well-researched analysis, interviews, features and comments, alongside real-time news and updates on every major sporting event.

Since sports is all about a visual treat, we also give pride of place to Videos and Slideshows. Columns, from Sunil Chhetri, Ian Rush, Mahela Jayawardene and Sunil Gavaskar, take the reader closer to the game. And little-known facts about sporting heroes are showcased in the Star Life section.

We are also duty-bound to highlight the achievements of every budding athlete, egging them on.
