 “Through our partnership with the Abu Dhabi T10, we have further positioned Abu Dhabi as a major sporting global hub and consistently demonstrated the city’s ability to both build, and host, one of cricket’s most entertaining competitions,” said HE Aref Al Awani, General Secretary, Abu Dhabi Sports Council. “This is evidence of the success of a significant strategic objective of the Abu Dhabi government; to create and deliver sporting events that contribute to enhancing the emirate’s leadership in global sports.”

Shaji Ul Mulk, Chairman of T Ten Sports Management, added: “When we first brought the league to Abu Dhabi, we had the aim of establishing it as one of the standout events on the international cricket calendar and, with the support of ADC, ADSC, DCT – Abu Dhabi and Emirates Cricket Board, we’ve done just that.

“The Abu Dhabi T10 is now well established as a credible form of the global game, and we see incredible growth with each edition, with global broadcast figures increasing to 342 million viewers thanks to the hard work of everyone involved – from the players to our franchise owners, broadcasters and sponsors. We will continue building on this success and we’re excited to take those next steps as cricket’s fastest format continues to evolve at a rapid rate.”

“The past three editions of the Abu Dhabi T10 have proven that 10-over cricket has both a thriving market and engaged international audience,” said Abu Dhabi Cricket CEO Matt Boucher. “With the sponsorship value at $279.3 million last year and the league’s economic impact value now standing at $621.2 million, the Abu Dhabi T10 continues to bring remarkable value to all involved – both in Abu Dhabi and overseas.”
