At the point when a Future Group official was reached, he rejected remark yet industry insiders affirmed that the draw out was on the cards in light of the budgetary strength of the organization.
“Future Group has been in bad shape since the start of Covid-19. It was bound to happen that they wouldn’t have been able to spend Rs 40 crore to be a part of BCCI’s central sponsorship pool. Hence, the pull-out is not a surprise,” the source said.
“Right now, the Future Group is going through a restructuring phase and there are talks with multi-national conglomerates about its potential takeover in the next few weeks. So sponsoring sporting events at the moment wasn’t a top priority for Future Group,” he added.

Be that as it may, with the title sponsorship sum decreased to about half (from Rs 440 crore from Vivo to Rs 222 crore of Dream11) and the ensuing force outs, the groups are set to get lesser than what they were procuring prior.
“We know it’s not an ideal situation but you can’t blame BCCI for this. There is a financial crisis. If franchises have earned and made gains during good times, they understand and stand by BCCI during troubled times,” a senior official of a franchise said.
