New Delhi:The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) today issued a notice inviting fresh tender bids for corporate sponsors interested in associating with the Indian cricket team.

The sponsorship is open for a period of three years from January 1, 2006 to December 31, 2009, a press release said here today.

There are separate tenders for main sponsors and official kit suppliers.

The tender for sponsors has been further divided into two categories; Team Sponsor for all matches to be played on home and away basis and another Sponsor for all ICC tournaments like the Champions Trophy and the World Cup.

BCCI Vice-President and a key member of its Marketing Committee Lalit Modi said he was looking forward to a good response from corporate India.

"We are happy to announce the issue of fresh tenders for team sponsorship and official kit suppliers. Corporate India has always shown great enthusiasm for the game of cricket and we are looking forward to establishing a relationship and furthering the future of cricket through their association," Modi was quoted as saying in the press release.

BCCI had a comprehensive sponsorship deal with Sahara whose three-year association with the team ended last month.
