Bengaluru, 11th March 2022: ACKO Insurance has signed on as an associate sponsor for three teams- Kolkata Knight Riders, Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Supergiants- participating in the latest instalment of the nation’s most popular cricketing league. Two of these teams are new franchises, making their debut in the 15th edition of the tournament. Forging ahead on a journey that began with a partnership with Delhi Capitals in 2020, and expanded to include Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad, this season will see ACKO join forces with a total of six teams as their insurance partner, making ACKO one of the key brands to be associated with the marquee event. 

As a part of the partnership, the players of Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans will sport the ACKO logo on their headgear (helmets/caps), while the players of the other three teams will have the logo on their trousers. The logo will also be prominently visible in the stadium where the teams are playing. The association with the teams will be amplified with a 360-degree campaign across television, digital and social media platforms, which will run throughout the course of the tournament.
