Close on the heels of acquiring the global commercial rights of the India-Sri Lanka cricket series 2009, Nimbus Sport has closed its sponsorship and perimeter deals. Hero Honda and Jaypee Cement have been signed on as official sponsors for the series for which IDBI Fortis has already been signed on as title sponsor. The series has been christened the ‘IDBI Fortis Wealthsurance Cup’.
Additionally, all perimeter signage sales have been concluded with a host of Indian and Sri Lankan brands.
Yannick Colaco, Executive Vice President, Nimbus Sport, said, “The addition of Hero Honda and Jaypee Cement as official sponsors adds to the prestige of the IDBI Fortis Wealthsurance Cup and is an eloquent testimonial of the pan-Indian platform that cricket provides, cutting across all demographics.”
