Fellow Challengers,

The festive season is upon us! Our warmest wishes to you and your families for a very happy and memorable Diwali. This time of the year also signals the start of the 4th RCB Corporate Cricket Championship (CCC)! 

In 2016 our CCC group stage matches take place at Alur on 19, 20, 26 and 27 November. This will set the stage for a Bumper Finals weekend, which will take place on the newly re-laid outfield of the Chinnaswamy Stadium on 7 and 8 January 2017! Semi Final 1 and 2 will take place on Saturday 7 January 2017, followed by the final on Sunday 8 January 2017. Make sure you diarize all these dates now!

Once again, the tournament will include an RCB player (or two) participating as the Super Sub/s. In 2015, Yuzvendra Chahal and Manvinder Bisla were the RCB Super Subs. And this time the 2016 final will be followed by a first of its kind Winners versus RCB All Star team under floodlights. Who will be this tournament's RCB Super Sub(s)? Who will be selected to play in the RCB All Star team? You have a chance. Go online (www.royalchallengers.com) and see for yourselves!
 
Can you recall the results of previous RCB Corporate Cricket Championships? In 2013, Team Hewlett Packard (HP) beat Amazon, and Muttiah Muralitharan was the RCB Super Sub. In 2014, Team Amazon beat Accenture and Yuvraj Singh was the RCB Super Mentor, with Ashok Dinda the RCB Super Sub. And in 2015, HCL beat Flipkart. Who will lift the trophy this time? Here are some photos to jog your memory.

These championships are not possible without the support of our valued sponsors like VDB – Value Design Build, Kingfisher Premium, 7 Concepts, SV Color Graphics and Fever 104 FM, to name but a few. 
    
As part of extending the impact of the CCC, we will also host many marketing activations such as Throwmotion games in many leading city pubs and malls in and around Bangalore. So if your company is unable to participate in the actual tournament, why not get down to a pub and/or mall and get into the action. You could be a winner of many lucky prizes on offer. Go to www.royalchallengers.com/ccc-registration for more information. 

As we look towards IPL 2017, we will continue to raise the bar as we take all things RCB to the next level. Help us become the best performing, most trusted and respected T20 franchise in India and the world. Remember to share your constructive feedback and experiences as an RCB fan with us via community@royalchallengers.com , so we can take the RCB fan experience to even greater heights in 2017.   

Once again, a very Happy Diwali! And remember, amidst the celebrations, make sure you do NOT drink and drive.
