RCB name Myntra as official fashion partner ahead of IPL 2020
The Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are considered as one of the strongest brands in the Indian Premier League. With their skipper and a list of high-profile players such as AB De Villiers, Yuzvendra Chahal, Aaron Finch and many more, the Bangalore-based franchise brings considerable value and exposure on board for their sponsors. Given their pull, Virat Kohli’s RCB have managed to land another big-name sponsor for the IPL. Indian e-commerce giant Myntra has come on board as a sponsor for the franchise in IPL 2020 to capitalise on RCB’s strong brand value and popularity. The company will act as an official fashion partner for the team. Myntra, in an official press release, announced their association with RCB.
