Game On for Tk 400 crore
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has approved Game On Sports Management as the event management firm for the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Twenty20 tournament.
In an emergency meeting yesterday, the BCB directors discussed the BPL governing council's evaluation report regarding financial offers received on November 30 from three event management firms.
According to a BCB statement, Game On's offer of a guaranteed amount of approximately Tk 400 crore for six editions of the meet is 83 crore taka higher than the second best offer.
Chairman of the governing council Gazi Ashraf Hossain said that the letter of intent (LoI) will be issued soon, though the MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) will be signed once the BCB gets the bank guarantee.
The BPL is proposed to be held in February next year.
