Gujarat Lions will battle it out against seven other teams for the title of ‘Indian Premier League Champions 2016’.

Speaking on the association, Kansai Nerolac Paints decorative director Anuj Jain said, “It gives us great pleasure to announce our sponsorship with Gujarat Lions. Cricket is the most loved sport in India and Nerolac has sponsored ‘Gujarat Lions’ because we believe that the team embodies a passion to excel. The team members are committed to outdo their previous performances and this spirit is resonated in our range of high performance products as well.”

“We are happy to have Kansai Nerolac as our associate sponsor. The support of a loved brand such as Kansai Nerolac means a lot to a team that is new and eager-to-perform. The Gujarat Lions are happy to don the vibrant orange caps and helmets with the Nerolac logo as we share a common grit and determination to outperform the best in the business,” said Intex Technologies  director and Gujarat Lions owner Keshav Bansal.

The association between Kansai Nerolac and Gujarat Lions follows some aggressive advertising by the brand during the recently concluded ICC World 20-20. Kansai Nerolac has also been maintaining a good media presence through on–air ad slots during the IPL over the years.

Kansai Nerolac has been promoting a range of healthy home paints. This association with Gujarat Lions reiterates the belief that a significant aspect of healthy living is linked with our living conditions & in having a healthy active lifestyle that keeps you fit. Participating in sports is a natural way of achieving good health.

Jain further added, “Kansai Nerolac has been advertising during cricket tournaments for quite some time now. This alliance with Gujarat Lions is a conscious move to become active advocates of the sport. We will also engage cricket fans through a series of interesting initiatives centred around our association off the field, while the Gujarat Lions team enthrals fans with their performance on ground.”

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan continues to be the face of the brand. “We will continue to reach out to fans through both cricket and Bollywood, the two biggest mass appeal platforms in India. Further our associations with both of these will be promoted across traditional media channels like TV, print and newer ones like social media as well,” concludes Jain.
