India's leading education and learning app BYJU'S (Think and Learn Private Limited) has been named as the new official Team India sponsor until March 2022.
BYJU'S will be taking over all the associated sponsor rights of the current team sponsor OPPO mobiles India private limited (OPPO).
BYJU'S will now be seen on the Indian Team Jersey from the September 2019 - South Africa Home series onwards.
BCCI CEO Rahul Johri said that the Board would like to thank OPPO for its partnership with Indian cricket. “We welcome BYJU'S as the new Team India sponsor and look forward to working together to further grow Indian cricket,” he added.
Commenting on the announcement, Byju Raveendran, Founder & CEO of BYJU'S said, "We are proud to be the Indian Cricket team sponsor. Cricket is the heartbeat of all Indians and we are thrilled to be an integral part of our much loved team. As a learning company, BYJU'S has always recognised the critical role that sport plays in a child's development. Just as cricket inspires a billion budding dreams across India, we too as a learning company hope to inspire the love of learning in every child's heart."
OPPO India said, “We would like to thank Team India and BCCI for a meaningful association that led OPPO to become a household name in just five years of operations in India. As OPPO enters into its sixth year, India will continue to remain a key growth market. To meet rapidly growing consumer demand, OPPO will accelerate its efforts on local production, R&D and retail. This will help OPPO bolster its commitment to offer Indian consumers cutting-edge technology and a premium experience.”
