Kingfisher’s Association with Sports:
Kingfisher’s association with sports began in 1988 with the prestigious Kingfisher Derby. Every year, the Kingfisher Derby crowns the best equine athlete and is a shining example of a great lifestyle sporting event in India. Over the years, the event has expanded exponentially and attracted the crème-de- la-crème of Bangalore with footfalls crossing 20,000 last year!
In 1996, Kingfisher sponsored The West Indies Cricket team which gave birth to the iconic jingle “Ooh La Lala Le O” which is today synonymous with the King of Good Times. The association with cricket deepened with iconic cricketers such as Sourav Ganguly, Ajay Jadeja, Andrew Flintoff and Michael Vaughan bringing further star value to the brand as the official ambassadors. Kingfisher is also the official Good Times Partner of seven out of the eight IPL teams.
1996 also saw Kingfisher’s first foray into the world of speed racing as a sponsor of the Benetton Formula 1 team. The brand has also endorsed India’s best race drivers Narain Karthikeyan& Karun Chandhok.
