Skyscanner is the official travel partner of the Delhi Daredevils

Leading global travel search engine continues its sponsorship with the Delhi Daredevils.

Skyscanner extends its partnership as the ‘official travel partner’ of the Delhi Daredevils for India Premier League 2015

As the cricket season continues with the eighth edition of the India Premier League (IPL), leading global travel search engine Skyscanner extends its partnership with the Delhi Daredevils as their official travel partner for the second year running.

After witnessing fervent participation from travel and cricket enthusiasts last season, this year Skyscanner will launch a campaign #SkyscannerSmartsters, where fans will be invited to give tips to players on playing smart cricket and travelling smart. Driven by the insight that most fans have a fine understanding of the nuances of the game and know how to really travel in style, the campaign will give fans a chance to win free flight tickets to anywhere in the world and match tickets to cheer for the Delhi Daredevils at the Feroz Shah Kotla. As part of the partnership, Skyscanner’s logo will appear on the back of the helmet and caps of Delhi Daredevils’ players.

Commenting on the sponsorship deal, Ravish Doctor, Marketing Manager, Skyscanner India said, “After a successful campaign last year which has led to increased brand awareness for Skyscanner in the Indian travel industry, we are extremely delighted to announce the extension of our partnership with the Delhi Daredevils team as their official travel partners. With both teams sharing common synergies and values of passion, teamwork and camaraderie, we look forward to a successful association with one of the most promising teams of IPL as we continue to enjoy this fruitful journey together.”

Commenting on the association, Hemant Dua, CEO, GMR Sports said, “We are delighted to further strengthen our partnership with leading global travel search brand, Skyscanner. I am confident that this association will enable us to reach out to a wider fan base and allow consumers a refreshed experience while booking their travel as they cheer on the Delhi Daredevils’ journey across the country. We look forward to continue our successful relationship with Skyscanner and make it one that is long lasting.”

Along with a slew of contests for cricket buffs and travel enthusiasts, Skyscanner will also host a selection of bloggers at one of the Delhi Daredevils’ home matches. Skyscanner partnered with Delhi Daredevils in the seventh edition of IPL, marking its foray into the world of cricket and its first sports sponsorship in the region.
