As per the partnership, the branding of AVPL Drones is placed on the back of the caps/helmets of the PBKS players and, also at the home stadium, Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium. Through this partnership, the company wants to connect with the youth and help them to know about the scope of the field of entrepreneurship and push them to pursue a career in this sector.
Deep Sisai, AVPL chairman and MD, said, “Cricket is at the very heart of India’s culture, and our affiliation with Punjab Kings presents an unparalleled opportunity to establish a meaningful connection with the millions of young cricket enthusiasts who avidly follow the team and IPL matches. We believe that youth are the driving force of the nation’s future and deserve a fighting chance to reach their true potential. By empowering India’s youth with the necessary skills training, we endeavour to unlock countless employment opportunities for them and improve their prospects.”
Satish Menon, CEO of Punjab Kings, said, “The Punjab Kings team is happy to have AVPL as one of our official partners for this IPL season. AVPL’s dedication to equipping the youth with vocational training and helping farmers increase their daily income and uplift their lives resonates deeply with our team’s values. I look forward to the positive impact this partnership will have on our fans.”
AVPL is a leading training partner with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) that focuses on providing vocational training and sharpening skill development, to minimise the gap between the demand and supply of employable skilled workers.
