ABOUT US

Sport properties have been regarded as the most effective way to reach out to millions of consumers around the world. Since 2002, Gameplan has been marketing sponsorship rights for series and tournaments on behalf of the Board of Control for Cricket in India. This includes title rights, co-sponsorships and, in many cases, instadia display rights.

Tournaments marketed by Gameplan have usually been outstanding in terms of organisational, commercial and sporting success, finding extensive coverage in both print and electronic media. Sponsors have leveraged their brand by their presence on players’ clothing and accessories, advertising boards in premium positions, advertising on sightscreens and ground signs.
