HTC India VP, country head Faisal Siddiqui said, “We are thrilled to extend our partnership with the Kings XI Punjab, which has emerged as one of the most stimulating and renowned teams in IPL. The year 2014 was very impelling for us where we managed to perforate the mass market, yet retaining the ‘premium’ and ‘innovation’ element in all our products and designs. With a strong vision in mind and this trustworthy partnership, we are confident that we’ll be successful in our Pursuit of Brilliance. We see this as the beginning of a longer and bigger association with the Kings XI Punjab in the years to come.”

Kings XI Punjab COO Fraser Castellino said, “HTC is a globally recognized brand and revered as a leader in technology and innovation and we at Kings XI Punjab are delighted to partner with them again. Both KXIP and HTC have the potential to take on the world. HTC will be occupying the right chest position on the Kings XI Punjab playing jersey for IPL8. We look forward to this partnership and hope it grows from strength to strength.”

The Kings XI Punjab-HTC partnership has been stitched together by marketing agency Creatigies Communication.

Creatigies MD Navroze D Dhondy said, “Long-term partnerships work best for both the brand and the team, where they draw from each other’s strengths. We are glad to see this association continue and grow”.
