It has been learnt that PRAN-RFL Group, Meghna Group, Bkash, Robi Axiata Limited and Grameenphone are going to participate in the sponsorship auction.
The floor price for the auction is of Tk 60 crore. The current floor price is almost Tk 20 crore more than what the BCB had received two years ago when Robi Axiata Limited were won the rights to sponsor the team.
The result of the auction will be made public by BCB on May 3.

Earlier in 2015, event management company Top of Mind had won the sponsorship rights from BCB, beating Grameenphone, and then sold it to Grameenphone’s rival group Robi Axiata Limited at 41.41 crores for a period of two years.
Robi’s contact is expiring in June, and so their logo will not be displayed on the jerseys of the Tigers during the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in England and Wales. However, Robi’s logo will be seen during the tri-nation series in Ireland.
