Here is something new this year

BCCI invited the bids for the IPL sponsorships. They have given for six official partners, one strategic timeout partner, and one umpire partner in this IPL season. Experts are guessing that this season would be the biggest one than all the others which were arranged till now. This time Umpire partner sponsor is the new addition by BCCI. In the bid, this sponsorship was won by the Paytm, mobile wallet brand. Paytm has been given the sponsorship for five years from the year 2018 to 2022. This brand would also be the title sponsor of the Indian cricket.

Among the brands which have been in the sponsorship, ZooZoos will be there. They had previously entertained their fan too in case of IPL matches. This year the ZooZoo will be coming in a new ninja avatar and will be entertaining the people and the fans of the ZooZoo.

CEAT tire will also continue the association with the IPL this year also. The brand would be associated with the annual tournament and the official timeout partner. This contract has also been made for five years, until 2022. It was started in the last season that is in the year 2018.

As the commercial partner, star India is having the brands like the Vivo, Coca-Cola, and Jio as the co-presenting partners. Polycab, Parle products, AMFI, Make My Trip, Vimal Pan masala, Asian paints and Dream 11 are the associate sponsors. Besides, there will also be Amazon, Vodafone, Pepsi Co, Mondelez, Samsung, Nivea, MRF, Honda motors and scooters, Policy,  Swiggy,, Madhura garments.

The BCCI has announced the last date of submission of the expression of interest of the sponsorship is by 17th January and the last bid by 31st January. Till now no final list of the sponsorship has been created. Once it is created, the final list would be announced. Hopefully, we will be getting the final list of the sponsors by the mid of February month. Whichever brands get selected would be announced through the official announcement of the BCCI.  

Whichever brands get final selection in the sponsorship will be shown on the advertising board. LED perimeter would be used to be casting it on the advertising board or the pitch mat on outfield mid wicket, boundary rope. Thus the brand will be having a digital presence over the game.

But this year many would not get the chance of enjoying it from the stadium. Or you may have to take a foreign trip for that.
