The American multinational financial company Mastercard is the title sponsor for all international matches (both women and men) held on home ground, domestic cricket matches organised by the BCCI. It also includes all junior cricket (Under 19 and Under 23) matches held in India.

“The BCCI welcomes Mastercard as the Title Sponsor for home cricket matches for the 2022-23 season. Along with the international home series, the BCCI’s domestic tournaments are crucial as they are a stepping stone towards making India a strong international side. The BCCI truly values Mastercard’s support in building Indian cricket. This sport is more than a passion point, it’s a way of life and we look forward to some innovative experiences for the fans via this partnership and deliver value to Mastercard through this collaboration,” said BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly.

“Cricket enjoys unparalleled popularity not just in India where it is a singular unifying force for the nation, but also in several countries around the world. It is therefore particularly relevant and opportune for us to have acquired the title sponsor rights for all home international and domestic cricket matches organized by the BCCI,” said Raja Rajamannar, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at MasterCard, about the deal.
