Due to their ownership of the Rising Pune Supergiant franchise, which participated in the IPL’s 2016 and 2017 seasons, the RPSG group has firsthand knowledge of what it takes to manage an IPL club. This time, RPSG won’t just want to stay around for a while; they’ll also want to get their hands on a trophy as soon as possible.
In March 2022, it was revealed that the Gurugram-based online education loan firm would be a secondary sponsor of the Super Giants. The Credenc.com logo appears on the sleeves of the Super Giants gameday shirts as part of the branding rights.
In February 2022, the Kolkata Knight Riders, Gujarat Titans, and Lucknow Super Giants were named as associate sponsors of the IPL by the Indian insurance firm with its head office in Mumbai.
When the Indian fantasy sports website secured a three-year agreement with the IPL rookies in January 2022, it became the Super Giants’ first-ever official title sponsor. Thus, the Super Giants shirt has the My11Circle emblem on the front.
Since the 2018 season, the eight IPL teams have all been sponsored by the Mumbai-based Indian telecom company. The Super Giants have now joined the team as newcomers and have been added to Jio’s squad.
Prior to the 2022 season, the IPL franchise controlled by the RP-Sanjiv Goenka group signed on as an official sponsor with the food brand.
