India, March 21st, 2022: Indian Cricket fever is a widely recognized phenomenon that skyrockets during every grand tournament. And while millions of fans worldwide buy tickets to watch Cricket LIVE, at least double the fans stay glued to their TV sets to watch these games in high resolution. In this context, TCL, a global top-two television brand and leading consumer electronics company has reiterated its commitment to officially sponsor Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) for the third time in a row. As a part of the contract, the TCL brand logo will appear on Upper Non leading arm right of the player jersey.

It looks forward to launching new products and expanding the TCL product lineup. As a part of its expansion strategy and to further strengthen the global business the brand has announced that its biggest overseas panel factory located in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh would soon commence the production of LED TV panels in May this year.

With the continued partnership with SRH, TCL has strengthened its bond with consumers and the Cricket community and established its progressive stance in the sports ecosystem. Hyderabad serves as a huge market for TCL and this association of TCL and SRH would further help them establish the brand and strengthen its roots in the city.
