Ban Tech Secures Bangladesh Cricket Broadcasting Rights

 Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) sold the Bangladesh cricket broadcasting rights to Ban Tech at $19 million (BDT 161 crore)

Bangladesh Cricket Board has sold its broadcasting rights to marketing agency Ban Tech. This sale of rights will bring a sigh of relief to the cricket board as it was without a broadcaster. The situation in Bangladesh was tough as the Sri Lankan team had arrived in Bangladesh and the board had still not managed to find a broadcaster just before the three match ODI series.

Ban tech will receive around $19 Million from Bangladesh Cricket Board. According to reports, this deal is for the duration of two and a half years and will last from 2024 till October 2024.

Ban Tech Secures Bangladesh Cricket Broadcasting Rights

Bangladesh Cricket Board was looking for a long-term broadcasting deal and had set up a price of BDT 161.5 crore for the bidders. Ban Tech were the only bidders and they met the floor price thus securing the broadcasting rights.

This is not the first time that Ban Tech has bought TV rights. The marketing company had bought tv rights for the home series against West Indies earlier this year. T-Sports and Nagorik TV had bought the rights for the series from this agency later on.
