Delhi Capitals announced JSW Group as the principal sponsor for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League to be held in UAE from September 19 to November 20, 2020. JSW Group comes in place of Daikin air-conditioning who had been the Delhi franchise’s principal sponsors since 2015.
At the announcement of the new principal sponsor, Parth Jindal, Chairman and Co-Owner of Delhi Capitals said, “We at the JSW Group see this as a tremendous opportunity to step in as Principal Sponsor for the Delhi Capitals. The fact that JSW is rapidly increasing its consumer-facing businesses across steel, cement and paints also call for the JSW brand to be more visible and few properties garner the viewership of the IPL.
“DC embodies the same zeal, desire and hunger as JSW and thus we are proud to be the principal sponsor of the Capital city’s IPL team and wish them all the best for IPL 2020,” he added.
The franchise is jointly owned by the GMR Group and the JSW Group. Parth Jindal is also the Director of JSW Steel USA, Founder of JSW Sports and Managing Director for JSW Group’s Cement and Paints businesses.
Speaking about his expectations on the team’s performance during the new season, Parth Jindal added, “The upcoming edition of the IPL will be different for more reasons than one. I have full faith in our team’s players and coaching staff to better the results of the previous year. I wish them all the very best as they prepare to depart for UAE.”
Last year playoff qualifiers, Delhi Capitals reached UAE on Sunday and are under isolation for six day at their team hotel, Palace Downtown in Dubai.
