RCB Divas and Fans unite!
We welcome Murali Kartik to our squad for 2013 after a successful trade with Pune Warriors India. Ray Jennings our head coach is in Bangalore and raring to go in helping our squad prepare for the Pepsi IPL action, only a matter of days away.
Our affordable tickets are now available online. This year we have gone a step further by providing multiple ticket redemption centers across Bangalore. This will enable you to pick up the tickets as per your convenience.
This year, the tickets will not just guarantee your entrance to the Chinnaswamy stadium but it will also let you enter the world of RCB even before the game begins. In another first, RCB tickets have been complimented with augmented reality - watch your ticket come alive on your smartphone and get exclusive access to RCB content.
Please secure your match tickets at the earliest to avoid disappointment.
Our new all year round lifestyle merchandise range for 2013 will also be out very soon. Will be great to see you at our matches in your preferred RCB merchandise.
Our players continue to live up to expectations. Only recently we witnessed tons from Chris Gayle (vs Zimbabwe), Mayank Aggarwal (vs Hyderabad in the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy), TM Dilshan (vs Bangladesh) as well as great performances, against Pakistan from AB De Villiers and from Karun Nair in the KSCA group 2, Division 1 super league match. Long may their form last.
Off the field we have been equally productive and successful. The digital launch of our new RCB Diva campaign is in full swing. Log on to our website for more detail and feel the excitement. We are putting pen to paper with some new external partners who are excited to be partnering and building a long term relationship with RCB. Watch our website and the press for more detail in the days ahead.
The stadium is in full prep work for our theme of “celebration” this year and you are in for a special treat in terms of our branding. Get down to the matches to enjoy the excitement both on and off the field. Our hospitality areas are going to be really well decorated and comfortable and you will be receiving great quality from our selected caterers, not to forget, being able to wash it down with your favourite USL or UBL brew.
A summer camp for budding cricket stars of the future will be held soon via the RC-KSCA Cricket Academy. If you believe you have what it takes to become a first class cricketer or you know someone who could be, get into action and make it happen.
Congratulations to our 3 FFC 5 finalists Mahesh Nambiar, Sumant Gole and Gaurav Dobhal who entered our RCB Sketchstar cartoon picture campaign recently, where Mahesh was named the winner. Well done Mahesh!
It’s nearly TIME FOR ACTION! Make sure you budget time and money for your must-watch RCB Pepsi IPL matches. See you all again very soon.
