Google is diving deeper into the world of sports marketing, with its Pixel smartphones becoming one of 18 official sponsors for the highly anticipated 2024 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). This move aligns with Google’s increasing emphasis on reaching a broader audience in India, where the IPL enjoys immense popularity.

JioCinema, the official IPL streaming platform, has secured an impressive lineup of 18 sponsors and over 250 advertisers ahead of the season’s kickoff on March 22nd. Google Pixel joins other major brands like Dream11, Tata Motors, SBI, and Pepsi for this season of the thrilling T20 cricket tournament.

Google isn’t new to the arena of sports sponsorships. The tech giant has previously made notable partnerships with high-profile leagues like:

The U.S. National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL): Google Pixel became the official mobile phone of the NWSL and the presenting sponsor for the playoffs and championship.

England’s Football Association: Google extended its reach by sponsoring both the men’s and women’s teams of the FA.

Premier League Clubs: Google Pixel partnered with Arsenal and Liverpool to cement its connection with English football.

The IPL provides Google Pixel with a massive platform to reach cricket’s passionate fanbase, particularly in India. With digital streaming gaining significant ground, JioCinema offers a strong avenue for Pixel phones to engage directly with enthusiastic viewers. This strategy complements Google’s growing focus on the Indian market.

The Google Pixel/IPL partnership highlights the expanding relationship between technology and sports. This collaboration promises unique engagement opportunities, showcasing Pixel phones as an ideal companion for watching the adrenaline-fueled excitement of the IPL.
