Ten Sports ropes in 4 major sponsors for ongoing Cricket Festival

MUMBAI: This summer Ten Sports Network (Ten Sports) has brought in a four-month long uninterrupted Cricket Festival to the cricket-crazy Indian sub-continent. Ten Sports has roped in major sponsorship deals with Micromax as the presenting sponsor, Gillette and Fogg as the co-presenters and Kent RO as the studio sponsor for Ten Sports cricket analysis show Straight Drive. The analysis show is presented pre-match, during the innings break and post-match.

The Cricket Festival started with a tri-nation series in the Caribbean between reigning World T20 champs West Indies, reigning World champs Australia and the ever-green Proteas. This was followed by India’s tour to Zimbabwe, with India winning the 3 ODIS emphatically and Zimbabwe taking the lead in the ongoing three-match T20 series. After the Zimbabwean safari, Team India will travel to the Caribbean for a four-match Test series. Simultaneously, the Aussies will be travelling to Sri Lanka for 3 Tests, 5 ODIs and 2 T20s while the New Zealand Cricket team will be in Zimbabwe to play a two-match Test series.

Speaking on the Cricket Festival, Ten Sports Global CEO Rajesh Sethi said, “The Cricket Festival is an excellent proposition as we celebrate the best of cricket this summer from across the world. Most of the matches have resulted in close encounters which have been an absolute delight to our fans. We are also happy to partner with top brands from the country who have shown keen interest in the property. We have Micromax on board as the presenting sponsor, Gillette and Fogg as the co-presenters and Kent RO as the sponsor of Straight Drive, cricket’s most popular analysis show.”

Commenting on the partnership, Micromax Informatics chief marketing officer Shubhajit Sen said, “Being a youth centric brand, Micromax has always been focused on Movies, Sports and Music. In line with this, we are happy to partner with Ten Sports Network for Micromax Cricket Festival to bring an exhilarating cricket season to the millions of passionate cricketing fans in the country. This sponsorship once again reiterates our commitment towards engaging with the youth and building a brand that echoes their interest and pulse.”
