Mr. Ashley De Silva, CEO of Sri Lanka Cricket, Commenting said, ‘The ODI series between Sri Lanka and India is going to create a lot of interest among the cricketing fans in Sri Lanka, India, and across regions, and I am sure, it will be a major inspiration for the younger generation also to get inspired for bigger things in life. ‘I take this opportunity to thank Unacademy, which also focuses on the younger generation, for coming forward as the title sponsor of this important series.’
As part of its strategy to increase visibility for the brand via sporting associations, Unacademy has been an official partner for the last two editions of the Indian Premier League, hosted in India. The EdTech major also secured the title sponsorship for the Unacademy Road Safety World Series hosted earlier this year.
“As an education platform that resonates with the youth, Unacademy has always strived to establish a deeper connect with its learners. Sporting events help instil characteristics of discipline, resilience, and fortitude in the youth — traits we believe every Learner should imbibe. Becoming the title sponsor of the Sri Lanka Vs India ODI Series enables us to make a positive impact among young viewers of the game, and we’re excited to be a part of the Series,” Karan Shroff, Chief Marketing Officer at Unacademy
