IPL Franchise Rajasthan Royals has announced Expo 2020 Dubai as Principal Sponsor
As part of the association, Expo 2020 Dubai will appear on the front of the Rajasthan Royals’ jersey as Principal Sponsor, helping to spread the Expo 2020 message to millions of cricket fans all over the world, with exactly six months until the event opens its doors.
Last year, this association was called off as the expo had to be postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Expo 2020, being organized from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022, Expo 2020 will welcome more than 190 nations and millions of people from across the globe to Dubai, UAE. For 182 visually striking, intellectually enlightening and emotionally inspiring days, visitors will experience a dynamic and diverse program, including innovation, culture, art, food, music and sport from every corner of the planet.
Jake Lush McCrum, Chief Operating Officer, Rajasthan Royals, said: “We are delighted to welcome Expo 2020 as our principal sponsor for this upcoming season. At the Royals we are driven by our ambition to impact society through cricket and this partnership with Expo 2020 is another exciting step on that journey.
