BCCI have signed FanCraze, Boost and CEAT as the Official Partners of the Women’s T20 Challenge 2022. Earlier, My11Circle was announced as the title sponsor of the Women’s T20 Challenge 2022.
The Women’s T20 Challenge this year will comprise four games which will be played from May 23 to May 28 at Pune’s MCA stadium.
Commenting on the associations, IPL Chairman Brijesh Patel said, “The return of the My11Circle Women’s T20 Challenge and with the interest being generated around the tournament we are well on our way to solidifying the pathway to a dedicated Women’s IPL and continue to grow participation of women in the sport. New partners coming on board is testament to the quality and popularity of the tournament. We hope the My11Circle WT20C provides ample opportunities for players to step up and be a role model for all the budding women cricketers and for those young fans who are the backbone of the sport. We thank all the Partners for their continuous support.”
BCCI Treasurer Arun Dhumal added, “The My11Circle Women’s T20 Challenge has grown significantly and this is a very positive sign for women’s cricket in India. Increased viewership and participation in the sport allows us to develop talent and grow our player pool and build them for success in World cricket. In the future, the same talent that is being developed will share this stage with some of the best cricketers around the world and this is what we have been aiming towards. I thank all our partners for their support on this wonderful journey. We are certain we will deliver great value to them.”
Anshum Bhambri, Chief Executive Officer, FanCraze said, “FanCraze is excited to be an official partner of the 2022 Women’s T20 Challenge, and to launch the women’s game into the next generation of sports-based assets. We will be debuting FanCraze Flash, a brand new mobile game based on collecting and playing with women’s cricket NFTs over the course of the 2022 Women’s T20 Challenge. Flash shows us what is possible if one combines creators, content, and commerce.”
Krishnan Sundaram, Vice President – Integrations & Business Head, Unilever, added, “Boost has always championed the underdog’s narrative in sport and life. Without being preachy to our audience, we wanted to explore how the brand can impact the psyche of the next generation of cricket fans, and make them experience how the game is not about gender, not about perceptions, but all about stamina.”
