Bangladesh Cricket Board on Wednesday invited two biddings for the national team’s sponsorship rights as well as the team’s kit partner rights for the next two years.

The time frame for the national team’s sponsorship deal will be from April 6, 2021 to November 30, 2023 that includes ICC and ACC events while the team’s kit partner rights, which will be in the same time frame but that excludes ICC and ACC events.

The winners in the bid will be the sponsor of the Bangladesh national men’s cricket team along with Bangladesh A team, Bangladesh U-19 and Bangladesh national women’s cricket team.

BCB's previous team sponsor contract with Unilever expired in January 2021 and since then the team has been running with interim sponsors.

The Anglo-Dutch consumer giant Unilever was not ready to extend their team sponsorship deal which expired in January last year and as a result, BCB was looking for new sponsors.
