Major League Cricket announces multi-season partnership with Remitly

Remitly will launch special promotions throughout the MLC season, including discounts on international money transfers and exclusive offers at select matches.

Cognizant Major League Cricket (MLC), the United States’ professional T20 league, has secured a multi-season partnership with Remitly, a leading digital money transfer service, as a signature partner.

This strategic partnership brings exciting benefits to MLC fans. Remitly will launch special promotions throughout the season, including discounts on international money transfers and exclusive offers at select matches. Fans attending these games can expect in-stadium experiences and giveaways sponsored by Remitly.

Commenting on the partnership, Vijay Srinivasan, CEO of Cognizant Major League Cricket, said, “The partnership with Remitly marks another significant milestone for Cognizant Major League Cricket as part of our investment into growing the sport in the United States. With the support of our partners, we are focused on elevating the fan experiences in-stadium and the broadcast product for our fans around the world this season, building on the success of the inaugural tournament to create a must-watch sporting event for all cricket fans.

Pankaj Sharma, Remitly’s Chief Business Officer, said, “Cricket is one of the many ways our customers stay connected with loved ones, no matter where they are in the world. Remitly is thrilled to partner with Cognizant Major League Cricket for its historic second season, and we look forward to seeing how this beloved global sport continues to unite and inspire our customers.”

Remitly is a Seattle-based international money transfer service established in 2011. Its services reach over 170 countries, offering a global solution for sending and receiving funds.

The 2023 MLC season marked a turning point for American cricket. It introduced high-quality domestic T20 action to the US, with matches in Texas and North Carolina drawing sell-out crowds. Further solidifying its position, MLC recently secured Cognizant, a major American IT services company, as its title sponsor. Royal and Stake have also joined as signature and official partners, respectively.

The much-awaited T20 tournament begins on July 5. The opening match, featuring top international players, pits the defending champions, MI New York, against Seattle Orcas at 1:00 AM IST.
