Sports Universe of Kathmandu has sponsored Dhangadhi Cricket Academy (DCA) for one year. According to the one-year deal that was struck on Wednesday, Sports Universe will provide sports kits worth Rs 100,000 and in return, DCA will wear the jersey scripting its logos.
Sports Universe is run by Nepal’s taekwondo ace Deepak Bista. DCA president Subash Bahadur Shahi and DCA U-17 captain Dipendra Thapa made public the new DCA logo with the Sports Universe logo during a programme in Dhangadhi. DCA will wear the jersey during its upcoming Sri Lanka tour.
Running as the first cricket academy of Far-west Region, DCA is currently affiliated with National Cricket Academy. Taekwondo ace Bista said he was happy with the agreement.
“We are looking forward to extend the contract. Its good to tie up with an institution which has worked so much in the development of cricket in the Far-west and the country itself,” said Bista.
Shahi said the tie-up has motivated DCA further in bringing more programmes in the future. The U-17 DCA team is leaving for a 16-day Sri Lanka tour on Thursday.
The DCA tour is supported by FNCCI Kailali, Hotel Jalsa, SPA College, Kissan Trading Concern, Calory Veg Mo:Mo and NLG Insurance.
