Through this association, the foundation will be the Principal Partner for the Indian contingent at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and the 2022 Commonwealth Games and Asian Games. Further, sports and athleisure brand MPL Sports was also named the official kit partner for the Indian contingents for both the 2022 events.

“India has the potential to become a global sports superpower. One of our goals with MPL Sports Foundation is to democratise opportunities in sports and esports for our vastly talented youth. We are honored to partner with IOA and hope that this will be a long-standing association. We look forward to working together to develop the future of sports in India.”
