Rajasthan Royals have these ambitious plans for UK market

Rajasthan Royals’ brand ambassador Shane Warne has presented the Indian Premier League franchise’s long-term business plans for the United Kingdom market along with the lead owner Manoj Badale at a networking panel-event at the Kia Oval as the duo addressed a panel-event for business leader.

The Pink City-based IPL team has a strong presence in the UK. The British-Indian owner of the team Manoj Badale and English cricket stars like Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer in their ranks adds to the team’s presence in the UK market.

The event at the Kia Oval was attended by former England rugby player Andy Goode and Sports Minister Nigel Adams.

Speaking at the event, Warne said: “Business and sport are intertwined and at a time when so many are talking about the future of cricket, the Rajasthan Royals continue to demonstrate that they are ahead of the curve. We are one of the most popular franchises around the world due in part to our emphasis on identifying and developing young talent, for example with the UK academy in Surrey. We have big plans in the UK, Australia and America, all over the world, so we are certainly going places.”

Jake Lush McCrum, Chief Operating Officer at Rajasthan Royals, said: “It is very motivating to discuss our long-term UK plans with key business leaders. We have demonstrated our emphasis on developing talent through the UK academy, and now we plan to expand our presence further. With players including Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Liam Livingstone, we already have sensational UK cricketing talent. Now we are looking forward to giving more opportunities to UK Royals fans to engage with the franchise.”

Rajasthan Royals in March this year had launched an academy at Reed’s School in Surrey, illustrating the IPL franchisee’s commitment to growing their presence in the region and developing cricket talent in the “home of cricket”.
