Commenting on the partnership extension, CA Executive General Manager, Broadcasting & Commercial Stephanie Beltrame said, “We are thrilled to extend our long-standing partnership with MKTG Sports + Entertainment. Over the years, they have been instrumental in enhancing the fan experience during our cricketing events, helping us grow the value of our commercial assets and their expertise in media infrastructure and content development continues to be invaluable.”

We look forward to further elevating the cricketing experience for fans across the nation.”
