CRED Joins As Official Sponsor:
The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Tuesday announced CRED as an official partner of the Indian Premier League(IPL) 2020. Earlier BCCI announces that Unacademy will join the sponsor club after Dreram11.
After VIVO’s decision of pulling out of the IPL 2020 title sponsor, many companies get in to bag the title sponsor. Finally Dream11 bags the 2020 title sponsor.
In addition to Dream11 and Unacademy, CRED jointly sponsors the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League 2020. CRED is a Bangalore based credit card bill payment platform. The 13th IPL is scheduled to be held in UAE from September 19 to November 10.

At the end of every game, CRED will reward the Payer of the Match where the 100th or the highest bill-payer during each match will win ₹100,000 in prize money, said the company’s statement.
“IPL 2020 is kicking off the festive season this year, and at CRED we wanted to make the party extra special for millions of cricket lovers tuning in.
