BCCI calls for tenders for Indian team’s formal wear, event management, ground rights

The Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has called for three tenders following the marketing sub-committee’s meeting held in Delhi last week. The three tenders are for appointment of official provider of formal wear and accessories for the Indian Team; an event management partner to produce and execute the BCCI Ratings and Awards; and a partner to market and sell ground rights at all overseas neutral venue matches.

The tenders will be available to from August 3, 2006 at the BCCI offices at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. The last date of submission of all three tenders is August 11, 2006 at the same venue. The bids will be opened and the winners announced at the BCCI marketing sub-committee meeting in Chennai on August 14, 2006.

A decision on the partners for BCCI’s site will also be taken on August 14. The two competing parties in the fray are Microsoft along with TCS, and Cricket Network (TCN) in partnership with Sun and Wipro. Both parties will submit their respective final financial schedules for the portal on August 14.

Accenture, recently appointed by BCCI as the nodal agency for advice and consultation on the final selection of the body’s portal in an objective manner, will undertake the selection process under the supervision and guidance of the BCCI marketing sub-committee partner.

For this year, BCCI also announced that a Tri-series of seven ODIs between India, Australia and West Indies would be played in September in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur as part of the newly formatted neutral venue schedule.

India will play two matches against Australia and two against West Indies and the finals will follow this. Singapore will host the first three-day ODIs while Kuala Lumpur will host the following four ODIs. Cricket Australia will be managing and consolidating all ground handling for the series.
