Delhi Capitals have formally confirmed that the JSW Group will be the Indian Premier League team’s principal sponsor for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League.
JSW Group, co-owner of the Delhi-based IPL franchisee, has come in place of Daikin Air-Conditioning who had been the team’s principal sponsors since 2015.
Commenting on the new Principal Sponsor, Parth Jindal, Chairman and Co-Owner of Delhi Capitals said, “We at the JSW Group see this as a tremendous opportunity to step in as principal sponsor for the Delhi Capitals. At the JSW Group we are rapidly growing and building each of our businesses to be the best in India and the world, whether it is our flagship steel business or our other ventures in energy, infrastructure, cement and most recently paints.
“The fact that JSW is rapidly increasing its consumer-facing businesses across steel, cement and paints also call for the JSW brand to be more visible and there are few properties that garner the viewership of the IPL.
“At JSW, we strive to be “Better Everyday”, and over the past 2 years we have been witness to the DC team adopting this very same philosophy and constantly striving to reach new heights.”
Jindal also exuded confidence that the Delhi Capitals will emerge the IPL 2020 champions.
“We, at JSW have no doubt that this DC team has all the ingredients to bring the trophy to the capital city and to get the opportunity to be associated with a team filled with so much talent, youth and experience is something that is very exciting for every single JSW’ite,” added Jindial.
“DC embodies the same zeal, desire and hunger as JSW and thus we are proud to be the principal sponsor of the Capital city’s IPL team and wish them all the best for IPL 2020.”
Speaking about his expectations on the team’s performance during the new season, Parth Jindal added, “The upcoming edition of the IPL will be different for more reasons than one. I have full faith in our team’s players and coaching staff to better the results of the previous year. I wish them all the very best as they prepare to depart for UAE.”
