TPL franchise Mumbai Leon Army onboards Sonu Sood as brand ambassador

Mumbai Leon Army will use Sonu Sood's influence to increase enthusiasm for TPL and club among fans throughout the country.

The Tennis Premier League (TPL) unit, Mumbai Leon Army have announced the onboarding of the Indian actor, film producer and humanitarian, Sonu Sood, as their brand ambassador ahead of the upcoming season five.

Mumbai Leon Army will use the Bollywood star’s influence to increase enthusiasm for the league and club among fans throughout the country. Mr Shyam Patel, owner of the Mumbai franchise and a well-known Diamond Entrepreneur, expressed his delight at Sonu Sood’s addition ahead of the fifth season of TPL.

On the development, Mr Patel, said, “Mr. Sonu Sood is a well-renowned humanitarian and philanthropist besides being a gifted actor and film producer. Sonu believes in the power of the sport to transform lives and we as a franchise are proud and delighted that he will be part of the Mumbai Leon Army going forward. His presence will surely add another layer of glamour to our team and will also allow more fans to back the franchise once season five tees off, which we hope will spur our franchise on to go and win the league.

“The Tennis Premier League has already helped to shine the spotlight on the sport of tennis in our nation with an innovative format that has captured the imagination of the fans.”

Sonu Sood has also vigorously endorsed the government’s effort, Khelo India, which aims to encourage and instil sports in the daily life of young people from an early age.

On this partnership, Sonu Sood said, “The Tennis Premier League is a phenomenal tournament that involves fast-paced matches that are tailored to entice spectators to watch the league. The league has already allowed the tennis community in India to grow at an exponential rate over the last four seasons and I am glad to be part of the Mumbai Leon Army and the league as a whole. I hope my presence in the team’s dugout will help them clinch the trophy in the fifth season of the league.

“I know the crucial role sports plays in the day-to-day lives of young people. Tennis is often undervalued as a sport in our nation. While we have produced world-class players in the past, the TPL will surely offer a much-needed platform to future tennis stars of India, allowing them to showcase their skills as they journey on to become household names.”

Co-founder of TPL, Kunal Thakkur, said, “Beyond Sonu’s personal interest in sports, his participation speaks to his investment in the athletic culture of the country. We hope that his presence and involvement will help propel the sport and league towards the recognition they merit and help us achieve our dream of reaching tennis to every household across the country.”

Mrunal Jain, Co-founder of TPL, said, “We are greatly looking forward to the fifth season of the league. Sonu Sood’s presence would not only add to the grandeur of the event but also to the general excitement building up to it. With him as a Brand Ambassador, the Mumbai Leon Army will surely be met with unrelenting support in the upcoming season.”
