The Cape Town-based team is owned by Reliance Industries Limited, which also owns the five-time IPL champions, Mumbai Indians (MI). The franchise will be captained by the superstar leg spinner, Rashid Khan, and the unit consists of severely talented cricketers like Kagiso Rabada, Dewald Brevis, Sam Curran and Jofra Archer.
With such a star-studded line-up coupled with backing from the Indian multinational company, MI Cape Town was bound to receive a plethora of brand deals. Let’s have a look at the team’s sponsors:
MI Cape Town named the popular sportswear brand, Parimatch Sports as their principal sponsor for two years. The branding of the company will be seen on the front of the team’s jersey. This lucrative partnership gives the privilege to Parimatch Sports of leveraging the global fan base of MI Cape Town.
Official Tire Partner:
The Cape Town-based SA20 team announced the Indian multinational tyre manufacturing company, BKT Tires, as their official tire partner.
The Reliance-backed team has signed multiple brands in this category. Momentum Medical Agency, the health agency in Blackburn, Yu FoodLabs, which provides fresh meals in four minutes, and Dream11, the Indian sports fantasy platform, are being named the official partner by the team for the first-ever season of the competition.
MI Cape Town will kick off their SA20 journey on Tuesday, January 10 against Paarl Royals at Newlands, Cape Town at 9 PM IST.
