Indian Cricket - A Global Money Spinner - ICMR Micro Case Studies, On April 01, 2006, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the governing body for cricket in India, said that it had awarded the contract for the ground rights for the India- Pakistan Friendship Series to Percept D' Mark International PDM.
Lalit Modi (Modi), vice-president BCCI and chairman of its marketing sub-committee, said, "This is a unique opportunity for brands to not only reach out to the Indian communities overseas but also promote their brand in a unique manner where, for the first time, all rights are being offered to a single company."
Sports management experts pointed out that most of these venues had a large proportion of expatriates from the Indian subcontinent and BCCI was leveraging this opportunity to further increase its revenues. BCCI was the richest sports body in India and one of the richest sports bodies in the world. Moreover, after Sharad Pawar (Pawar) was elected as BCCI's new president in November 2005, the body had been actively seeking to multiply its revenues and become the world’s richest sporting body. Modi said, "All in all the BCCI properties will be worth over $1.5 billion dollars over the next four years, compared with a few million dollars it has earned over the last few years. It's huge growth by any standards in any sport. The BCCI is going to be the richest sporting organization."...
