STAR India awarded BCCI team sponsorship rights

STAR India has bagged the cricket sponsorship rights covering BCCI events, ICC events and ACC events for the period January 1, 2014 to March 31, 2017.

The rights include the right to be called the ‘Official Team Sponsor’ and to display a commercial logo on the team clothing of the senior men’s cricket team, the U-19 men’s cricket team, the men’s A-Team and the women’s team.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the BCCI’s Marketing Committee on December 9, 2013.

The tender document, which was available from November 11, 2013, was picked up by seven prospective bidders. Bids were accepted until 3:00 pm on December 9, 2013, at which time the bids were opened and evaluated. Two bidders – STAR India and Sahara India Financial Corporation – were in the fray. Sahara’s bid was found to be ineligible.
