PKL 8 Sponsors Watch: Gujarat Giants

In the previous season, the Giants finished ninth on the league table.

Gujarat Giants is a Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) outfit, which is based in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The team was founded back in 2017 and in the same year, it first stepped into the PKL, starting from season five. The Giants are owned by Adani Wilmar Ltd, following which it was initially known as Gujarat Fortune Giants, however, it was later changed to Gujarat Giants.

The Gujarat-based kabaddi franchise made quite an impact in their first season as they finished first in their zone A table. The Giants were later defeated in the final by Patna Pirates in their debut season. In their second season, they fell short in the final frontier of the season, against Bengaluru Bulls. In the previous season, which was two years ago, the Giants secured the ninth spot in the league table.

That’s all from their on-pitch performance, now let’s turn towards their business pitch as we look into their sponsorship deals for the ongoing season eight of the Pro Kabaddi League:

Gujarat Giants has roped in the Indian social gaming platform, WinZO in their sponsorship list. The gaming platform has been labelled as the principal sponsor of the side, with the Giants promoting the brand by placing its logo in front of the player jersey. WinZO sees this sponsorship deal as an opportunity to support the young and local talent promoting the ‘Bharat ka Khel-Kabaddi.’

Moving ahead, the Gujarat-based franchise has signed a partnership deal with the direct selling company, Netsurf Network. Following this, Naturamore, a wellness product from Netsurf Network, has been labelled as the official nutrition partner of Gujarat Giants. Adding to it, Naturamore will also have its presence on the sleeve of the player jerseys.

Astral, which is a manufacturer of CPVC pipes and fittings, has been labelled as the associate partner of the side in the eighth season of PKL. Adding to it, Astral has also become the back sponsor of Gujarat Giants as the brand has placed its logo at the back of the player jersey. Lastly, Shiv-Naresh Sport, which has been the kit partner of the Giants since its first season, has been associated with the team this season as well.

Gujarat Giants beat Jaipur Pink Panthers 34-27 on Thursday in its first game of the season.
