MasterCard Sponsors First-Ever ‘Cricket All-Stars’ in U.S.

MasterCard is proud to bring the first-ever “Cricket All-Stars” – a three-game series — played by living legends — to the U.S.


Global cricket icons Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne will headline the star-studded lineup at stadiums in three cities: New York City, Houston and Los Angeles. Each venue will see the Priceless Platforms come to life and a few lucky cardholders will have a Priceless Surprise — the opportunity to bat and bowl WITH Sachin and Shane.

Said MasterCard’s Chief Marketing Officer, Raja Rajamannar, “Globally, Cricket is the second most popular sport, behind only soccer. As a global company, it makes sense that we bring this to the fans. We’re proud to be among the first to bring the experience of live matches to this market.”

The “Cricket All-Stars” kicks off on November 7 at Citi Field in New York City; the second match will be on November 11 at Minute Maid Park in Houston, and the final match in the series will be on November 14 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The venues in Houston and L.A. will also have cricket clinics for students.

This global activation means tickets are available for pre-sale to MasterCard cardholders starting today. They go on sale to the general public on October 8.
