Global logistics service provider DP World and franchise cricket team that plays in the Indian Premier League, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have signed a long-term sponsorship agreement, making DP World the global logistics partner of the team.
Under the partnership, DP World will leverage its global logistics experience to support RCB in their logistics requirements. With BCCI’s decision to move the T20 tournament to the United Arab Emirates, DP World and Royal Challengers Bangalore are collaborating closely to ensure seamless movement and time-definite delivery of training gear as well as match kits from India to Dubai.
Rizwan Soomar, CEO & MD, Subcontinent, DP World said, “We are thrilled to partner with Royal Challengers Bangalore. The partnership with RCB is a confluence of two powerful global brands who share a similar passion for excellence. We are delighted that the RCB squad has some iconic players who have incredible records to their credit. Given the added logistics complexities that are unique to this year’s tournament, we at DP World have been able to leverage our global logistics experience to support RCB.”
This partnership also highlights DP World’s capabilities in the business of sports, which not only includes creating value around major global sporting events, but also designing agile and responsive supply chain solutions for sports brands across global markets.
