    HBL retain Pakistan Super League sponsorship for next 4 years (2022-2025)

    Pakistan Super League has received a major boost from HBL who have reacquired the title sponsorship of the PCB’s pinnacle tournament for another four-year cycle (2022-2025).

    HBL not only exceeded the reserve price in reacquiring the rights but sealed it with a 55 per cent jump from last cycle, which speaks volumes of their belief in the PSL brand.

    HBL earned title sponsorship rights following a public tender process in which seven interested parties had collected the bid documents.

    PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja: “I am delighted that the HBL have further strengthened their bond and relationship with the Pakistan Cricket Board by committing to support the Pakistan Super League for another four years. Reality is that HBL, in fact, have been investing in the future stars of Pakistan cricket through PSL for which we are eternally grateful.

    “Their decision to continue the partnership is also a validation and endorsement of the brand and product the HBL PSL has become, thanks to the untiring efforts of the Pakistan Cricket Board staff and our valued franchises. Both the PCB and franchises, with the patronage of HBL, have worked tirelessly to make the league glamorous, entertaining and exciting for the fans as well as the shortest format specialists who are keen to feature in it.”

    HBL Chief Operating Officer Sagheer Mufti: “HBL is pleased to renew its commitment to Pakistan’s largest sporting platform, Pakistan Super League (PSL) for a further four years. This will mark HBL’s support for this national initiative for 10 years, since its inception in 2016. HBL remains committed to playing its part in promoting Pakistan and cricket.”

    HBL Chief Marketing & Communications Officer Ali Habib: “HBL is all about ‘enabling dreams’ and this synchronizes perfectly with PSL’s philosophy to provide an enabling platform to the young, emerging cricketers of the country. HBL wishes PCB all the success in staging this mega sporting platform that provides fans the world over the opportunity to enjoy the best that cricket has to offer.”

    The difference between BCCI and PCB announcements.

    BCCI always disclose the amount - PCB ones - usually this comes out later!

    Indian market is big and we all understand and appreciate that.

    PSL is a great brand from Pakistan’s perspective.

    Yeah I was searching the figure in the article because that's usually the headline when Vivo or Byjus win sponsorship rights.

    Guess Ramiz likes to keep it under wraps, he's a smooth operator

    It’s not under wraps tbh. Last cycle it was 14.6 million/ year and it clearly says 55% increase which equals to 22.16

    And it’s mentioned on wiki too as 22.2

    I think $22.6 million per year is a pretty decent amount. It has quadrupled in value since the first cycle.

    IPL title sponsorship from Vivo was approx $65 million per year in latest cycle, for the record.

    It is actually a very very good amount when you think that the market for India is potentially at least 6 times bigger than the Pakistani market, but the IPL sponsorship deal is only about 3 times more than the PSL amount.

    Not sure why the Pakistani posters are calling it a modest deal.

    While Star India will pay Rs 3,269.5 crore to the BCCI for broadcasting rights, it will earn Rs 440 crore from Vivo as title sponsor along with Rs 220 crore from the five official sponsors, and another Rs 60 crore from umpire and strategic time-out sponsorship

    Yes, was only talking about title sponsorship.

    PSL broadcast deal expires next year - was $36 million for 3 years so will be interesting to see what increase there is (this deal was over triple the previous one). No idea about other sponsorship amounts (e.g. strategic time out type things) but am sure someone could find out.

    It's an acceptable amount imo. PSL will grow as well along with IPL. These two things can't be separated

    If the numbers are correct, PSL actually has a bigger sponsorship deal per capita than the IPL, which frankly I was surprised to find out. It's growing very well indeed.

    Lol, it's not $22.6 per year. It is $22.6 over 4 years which is around $5.5 million per year. BCCI gets $60 million per year from the title sponsorship alone. I am not happy with the job the PCB has done here. It should have been at least $10-15 million per years

    Someone needs to double check this. I think it's $22.1 million for 4 years in total. If it is per year then the PCB has done very well and I take my words back

    I doubt HBL has the pockets to pay $88 million over 4 years to the PCB. It can't be $22 million per year

    Had annual revenue of $720 million in 2017. They can afford it.

    Every source I have seen has given the title sponsorship figure as annual and until I see otherwise, I am assuming it is annual.

    $22 million/year will be almost twice the PSL broadcasting rights. The broadcasting rights is $36 million for three years.

    Is the title sponsorship worth more than TV broadcasting?

    PCB is spineless.

    They should have punished the franchises for their idiotic behavior and bubble breaches so that they knew their place.

    The reason the current franchises are so scared of new teams being introduced is that they know how badly they'd get hammered if a professional franchise was formed.

    5.5 million per year simply cannot be true. 5 million per year was for 1st PSL, multiple media reports are saying that indeed there were 7 parties involved in bidding process.
