When asked about what Titan’s management looked for while selecting a sponsor, Arvinder said, “Our focus while signing up partners was not about the commercials alone but more about the value a brand can add to our team. Our partners will focus their activations both at the national as well as regional levels. Some of their assets will include below-the-line, above-the-line, and digital. These activations are in sync with ours and the respective partners’ core brand values,”  

The Titans’ simple marketing strategy is to build a brand that associates with the fans of the team. “The fans are the most important part of the sporting ecosystem. Irrespective of the sport and where you are, it is imperative for a team to connect with the fans in ways that build loyalty.
