India retro jersey online price: Cricket fans can now buy India’s white-ball jersey by completing a simple online transaction.
Following BCCI’s three-year deal with eSports platform MPL (Mobile Premier League) Sports, fans of Indian cricket can now buy the ODI and T20I jersey by completing a simple online transaction.
Contrary to what was the case during a more than a decade-long deal between BCCI and Nike, fans can no longer step in to outlets to buy jerseys of the Indian cricket team as MPL doesn’t have such an infrastructure throughout the country.
It was only in November last year that BCCI had signed a deal with MPL Sports. The same had become possible after no one bid for the official merchandise partner of the Indian cricket team as Indian cricket faced financial consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
MPL Sports, who will design and manufacture jerseys of the Indian men’s, women’s and Under-19 teams till December 2023, will pay INR 3 crore per year as the merchandising partner in addition to splurging INR 65 lakh per match. It is worth mentioning that the per match price has dropped by INR 20 lakh as Nike used to pay INR 85 lakh to the BCCI during its last leg of the 14-year long deal.
