The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has opted for Pantaloon's 'formal wear' for Team India. And Accenture, an IT/BPO and consulting major, has been roped in as the advisor to the board for creating a 'web portal'.
Lalit Modi, chairman, marketing committee, BCCI, told a press conference that Pantaloon's Rs 20-crore offer for four years has been approved by the working committee of BCCI at its meeting here on Wednesday.
"The offer from Pantaloon company for the 'formal wear' tender has been approved," he said. Pantaloon will supply the 'formal wear' for Team India cricket players for a period of four years. This 'formal wear' is what the players will wear for off-field official activities. The contract for official 'sports wear' has already been bagged by Nike.
Meanwhile, Mr Modi said, Accenture will advise the board in creating a web portal. "We have received lot of offers, where the investments as well as the revenues too are high," Mr Modi pointed out.
