DP World and Delhi Capitals announced a long-term partnership. DP World, a leading provider of intelligent end-to-end logistics, is now the global logistics partner of the popular cricket franchise.
The new multi-year partnership, unveiled today at the Leela Palace Hotel in New Delhi, will feature DP World on the back of Delhi Capitals official match shirts and training gear.
The partnership extends beyond logistics to a shared vision of excellence based on innovation. This vision also resonates well in the Indian capital, New Delhi, a multicultural city and a global hub that connects across borders like DP World.
Rizwan Soomar, CEO & MD Subcontinent India & Sub-Saharan Africa, DP World, said: “Cricket has transformed over the years, with formats constantly evolving, unlocking huge potential for players around the world and making the game compelling and exciting for a diverse audience. Similarly, DP World has a relentless focus on innovation, constantly seeking new ways to revolutionize global commerce and provide growth opportunities for our customers. We are excited to announce this partnership, bringing together two leading organizations willing to push beyond conventional boundaries to transform what is possible for all.”
DP World, the multimodal logistics company present in more than 75 countries, ensures smooth trade movements around the world, including India. The company plays a vital role in supporting the game of cricket around the world. From transporting the cork of cricket balls to moving the wicker used to manufacture bats, DP World’s agile, reliable and transparent supply chain solutions help make cricket possible for players around the world.
Commenting on the new partnership, Dhiraj Malhotra, CEO of Delhi Capitals said: “We are delighted to sign a multi-year partnership with DP World. The organization is a world leader in logistics and as such it is a great privilege for us to have DP World as our global logistics partner. The organization has a strong global presence and will certainly help us grow the Delhi Capitals brand.”
The new partnership is part of DP World’s growing global portfolio of cricket partnerships. The company is title partner of DP World ILT20 in the United Arab Emirates and naming rights partner of DP World Lions and the iconic DP World Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. The company also became the title partner of the DP World Asia Cup held in the UAE in 2022.
DP World will begin its exciting journey with Delhi Capitals with Ricky Ponting, one of cricket’s most brilliant minds, leading the team against Lucknow Super Giants on April 1, 2023. The season sees Delhi Capitals return to Arun Jaitley Cricket Stadium after three years.
