Stars and OPPO join forces for another season

21 October 2019

The Melbourne Stars has announced the re-signing of co-major partner and official smartphone partner OPPO for the Rebel WBBL and KFC BBL seasons.

The partnership will see Melbourne Stars and OPPO continue its relationship after last year’s success where the companies joined forces to deliver innovative match day experiences and unique content to engage, inspire and entertain fans.

Acting General Manager BBL, Commercial and Marketing David Lever said it was pleasing to continue an already strong partnership with OPPO.

The renewal of the OPPO partnership is testament to the strong relationship we have developed over the past 18 months and specifically during WBBL|04 and BBL|08 last season,” said Lever.

OPPO has an extremely strong global relationship with cricket and we are thrilled the Stars are able to work with such an innovative, tech led company to continue to push the boundaries on behalf of our members, fans and supporters.

We are excited about what we have in store for the upcoming Big Bash seasons and look forward to the partnership with OPPO going from strength to strength.

OPPO Australia Marketing and Partnerships Executive Teira Humby believes renewing the Melbourne Stars partnership is a great opportunity for OPPO to continue promoting and investing in the sport.

Aussies love their cricket, especially over the summer months with the Big Bash. Whether you’re at the stadium or watching from home, we’re thrilled to be working with the Melbourne Stars again to bring fans new experiences and unique content opportunities.

There is a natural alignment between the Big Bash and innovative tech. Whether it’s looking at scores and stats, watching the game on your smartphone device or capturing priceless sporting moments, your phone is at the heart of it all. At OPPO we’re thrilled to be back behind the team and look forward to what the season has in store,” said Humby.
