The IBL is a joint initiative of Badminton Association of India and Sporty Solutionz, who are the commercial right holders of the League for multiple years. With a purse of $1 million, IBL is the richest badminton league in the world.

Prasoon Joshi, President South Asia, McCann World Group said, “We are happy to promote badminton and use our expertise in sport communication to further the game and the Indian Badminton League.”

For McCann Worldgroup, India the IBL strengthens a sport mandate that includes Mumbai Indians, Star Sports and Hockey India League.

Alok Lall, Executive Director, McCann added here, “It is a challenge to create a lasting impression for a sport other than cricket, but that’s what drives us at McCann.”
