Mumbai: JSW-Owned Pretoria Capitals announced Mega Casino World, an igaming brand operating in the space of betting, casino and real money gaming, as Principal Partner for the upcoming season of SA20. The multi-year deal will see Pretoria Capitals sport the Mega Casino World brand on the front and back of their match and training shirts.
Speaking on the association, Divyanshu Singh, Chief Operating Officer of JSW Sports said, “We are delighted to have Mega Casino World as the principal partner for the Pretoria Capitals. The team has made quite the impression in the first season of the SA20, and the interest we have drawn from some top brands is a testament to that. I would like to extend Mega Casino World a warm welcome to the Pretoria family, and I am confident that we will have a season to celebrate.”
The Capitals’ squad features several internationals and South African talent, who played a crucial role in their run to the final last term. The fan-experience and atmosphere at Supersport Park, the Capitals’ home ground, was among the best in the League, and saw soaring attendances, in what was the inaugural edition of the competition.
Commenting on the partnership, Mega Casino World Chief Marketing Officer, Mr. Lee Yong Fuk said, “We are very much delighted and thrilled to partner with Pretoria Capitals for SA20 Season 2. Cricket is recognized as a worldwide sport and has a fast-growing audience not only in South Africa but globally.”
In season one, Pretoria Capitals topped the league stage with seven wins in ten games. However, after a convincing win over Paarl Royals in the semifinal, they went down to the Sunrisers Eastern Cape in the summit clash. Pretoria begin the new season on January 12 with a fixture against Paarl Royals.
