Two wheeler company India Yamaha Motor enters into a one year partnership with IPL franchise Deccan Chargers
Yamaha in now the official partner of IPL franchise Deccan Chargers (DC) and its logo will now be seen on all DC ads and promotions. Yamaha will have unlimited access to the name and logo of the IPL cricket team as well as images and signatures of a minimum of three of the team’s players. The company will also be able to use the players for promotions and advertisements for a period of two days. Apart from these benefits, a Yamaha logo will be put on the players’ helmets and caps.
With the cricket fever rising to maddening heights and being the most watched sport in the country what better way to advertise the Japanese company’s bikes and reach out to the potential customers? Other motorcycle makers are also joining the bandwagon, as Hero Honda is sponsoring Mumbai Indians and TVS Motors doing the same with Pune Warriors.
The association with DC may prove to be beneficial for Yamaha taking in account its strong presence in the Hyderabad market. Yamaha will also have ticketing benefits and hospitality entitlements at the teams home ground. Yamaha, known for its brand trustworthiness and DC being the 2009 champions it could well be a win-win situation for both the sides.
