1sport will have full and rights to the broadcast of all matches worldwide, match analysis, presentation ceremonies, auction and other EPL promotion or press events in the future. The promotion of EPL via 1sport will begin immediately and will continue till the end of the event.
Promoting Nepali Cricket globally has been one of the main agendas of EPL and we believe, through this partnership with 1sport; which has been producing and broadcasting massive cricketing events like Nidahas Trophy (IND/SL/BANG), Pakistan Super League, Bangladesh Premier League, Afghanistan Premier League among others, distributing sports and entertainment content to domestic and diaspora communities; EPL will be able to tap in to a large network of cricket fans worldwide. The partnership, we believe, will bring international expertise and attention, in terms of promoting EPL. This is a major milestone in the history of Nepali Cricket, as for the first time; a company of this stature is endorsing a Nepali League. The association can also help promote Nepal Tourism Year 2020 in its potential target market as 1sport will be highlighting the scenic, cultural and architectural beauty of Nepal.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all EPL stakeholders, sponsors, fans, players and media for their continuous support.
