SS Events (P) Ltd is organising the Century Bank Corporate Super Sixes from September 26-30 at the Tribhuvan University Stadium grounds.
The league-cum-knockout tournament will be participated in by 24 teams. The teams have been divided into eight groups with winners from each pool progressing into the quarter-finals. According to the organisers, the semi-finals and final will be telecast live.
The champions of the tournament – which will be played with white ball and coloured clothing – will get free entry for next year’s tournament. The organisers also signed a three-year agreement with Century Bank for the title sponsorship. CEOs Anuj Mani Timalsina of Century and Raman Shiwakoti of SS Events exchanged the Memorandum of Understanding during a press conference on Tuesday.
According to the agreement, Century will provide SS with Rs 600,000 for this year’s edition with the amount for next editions yet to be finalized. Timalsina said Century has expectations from the tournament. “We hope that the tournament will be a huge success in its first edition. Century has been attached with cricket for a long time and we will keep working for the sport,” added Timalsina.
Shiwakoti was thankful to the sponsors. “I thank the sponsors and supports who have faith on us despite being a new company. The Super Sixes is the beginning of our activities. We have planned to organise at least four tournaments a year,” said Shiwakoti. Coca Cola are the co-sponsors of the tournament.
