Bengaluru, Karnataka, India: Royals Sports Group-owned franchise Rajasthan Royals today announced its association with Premium Dry Fruit brand Happilo as the Title Sponsor for the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) which is set to be held from March 26 – May 29, 2022. The deal will see India’s most loved Nuts and Dry Fruits brand’s logo appear on the front of the Rajasthan Royals’ official playing kit.
Happilo, which caters to consumers of all ages with a variety of products including nuts, dried fruits, organic seeds, dry-roasted snacks, trail mixes, Dry Fruit bars & more, marks the return of an FMCG brand in the IPL after quite a while, reiterating how popular and widely appealing the IPL and its teams remain as a marketing platform. “The FMCG sector, particularly in the lifestyle & premium sub-segment is seeing a major resurgence as the pandemic’s impact fades, and it’s going to be an industry to keep an eye on for this IPL and upcoming tournaments”, said Paroksh Chawla, CEO of ITW Catalyst, the agency that stitched the deal together. “Brands know their objectives, and have become savvy at how to efficiently use outlets like these to achieve them, which is what we usually consult them on”, he added.
Happilo sold more than 20 million packets last year, a testament to its popularity, and is entering the IPL arena with the objective of reaching out to a wider consumer base, both in India and across the world. In fact, Happilo has had associations with multiple sports leagues and its decision to sponsor the inaugural champions of the IPL, the Rajasthan Royals, marks its first foray into the IPL.
