Indian cricket internet and mobile rights to be put up for tender

August 12, 2011

The Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) will meet on 16 August to finalise the tender process for the sales of internet and mobile rights of international matches played in India.

The body’s marketing sub-committee will handle the process.

Mumbai-based Nimbus Communications holds the global television and production rights for international matches played in India until 2013, a deal renewed in 2009.

Nimbus previously held internet and mobile rights from 2006-10 but opted against keeping them, meaning the rights are up for sale.

At this time there are no indications as to which companies are expected to bid for the tender.
