Mumbai: DP World and Delhi Capitals today announced a new long-term partnership. DP World, a leading provider of smart end-to-end supply chain solutions, is now the Title Partner of the Women’s Team of Delhi Capitals, in the TATA Women’s Premier League, from 2024. The new multi-year partnership, unveiled today at the JW Marriott hotel in Bengaluru, will see DP World strengthen its relationship with the franchise.

A wide range of initiatives and efforts have been undertaken to foster and elevate the game of cricket in India.  At DP World, through this partnership, we are investing in widening the talent pool further in cricket. These remarkable cricket talents have consistently showcased their skills, determination, and passion for the game. Currently, DP World is the Global Logistics Partner of Delhi Capitals' Men’s Team and is extremely proud to extend this partnership to the Women’s Team as we remain dedicated to ongoing efforts in the promotion of the game.

DP World Subcontinent chief commercial officer, Logistics Ashwani Nath said: “We are excited to extend our partnership with Delhi Capitals as the Title Partner for their Women’s team. The last few years have been transformational for women’s cricket, with the sport reaching more players and fans than ever before. The Delhi Capitals women’s team has an impressive roster of players. Together with Delhi Capitals, we are seeking to revolutionise both cricket and global trade to change what’s possible for everyone.”

DP World, through its world-class multimodal logistics capabilities spread across more than 75 countries, ensures seamless movement of trade around the world, including India. From transporting the cork of cricket balls to moving the willow that’s used for making bats, DP World’s agile, reliable, and transparent supply chain solutions help make the game accessible to all.

Speaking about the new partnership, Delhi Capitals Interim CEO Sukhvinder Singh said: "Delhi Capitals is thrilled to have on board DP World as the Title Partner of our women's team. DP World's long-term commitment towards the women's game is commendable, and we couldn't be more excited about this partnership. After a successful innings with our IPL team, this collaboration was a natural one. It's a milestone moment for both teams - Delhi Capitals and DP World, as we look forward to kicking off the season in style."

As part of the partnership, Delhi Capitals will also work with DP World to support the logistics leader’s Beyond Boundaries Initiative. The initiative sees DP World leverage its interconnected global network and smart logistics capabilities to design and distribute fifty repurposed shipping containers to grassroots cricket clubs around the world, each one equipped with much-needed cricket gear. This initiative was unveiled during the 2023 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, with DP World pledging to donate 10 kits for every 100 runs scored. To date, over 2,800 kits have been pledged to grassroots cricket, via four bespoke containers.
