WinZO bags co-powered sponsor title for India-Australia Series on SonyLIV
For the first time, India’s largest vernacular social gaming platform WinZO becomes the official co-powered sponsor of the India Tour of Australia on SonyLIV. SonyLiv is a popular OTT platform owned by Sony.
India’s tour of Australia, starting on 27th November 2020, is India’s first international tour after nine months post the global COVID-19 pandemic lockdown; India last played New Zealand in February 2020.
The tour is two-month-long, comprising a three-match ODI series, followed by a three-match T20 series and a four-match Test series.
WinZO was recently in news for receiving a Series B funding of $18 million by global interactive entertainment fund, Makers Fund, New York-based Courtside Venture, and Steve Pagliuca, the Co-Chairman of Bain Capital and investor in Epic Games - developers of massively popular game, Fortnite.
All these investors have made their first investments in the Indian market for the first time through WinZO.
Ms. Saumya Singh Rathore, Co-Founder, WinZO Games said, “India is a market with over a billion cricket fans who have been hungry for cricketing action for the last nine months. Post IPL, it is great to see the resuming of international tournaments as well and it’s a proud moment for us to associate with the first India-Australia International Series of the year. WinZO is always committed to bringing the best entertainment to Bharat”
