    Is IPL realising its full revenue potential?

    The full potential of IPL has not been realised yet. Its business model is robust and is still growing if we go by the current valuations. However, we are happy to have been profitable for the past two years.

     

    What are your advertising and marketing plans?

     

    Rajasthan Royals has planned a blitzkrieg of marketing programmes to connect with our fans in Rajasthan, Gujarat, and the rest of India. We have recently launched a slew of marketing initiatives with our partners UltraTech, Moov and others.
