Manjeera group is sponsoring Telugu Warriors - the team that represents Telugu film industry. The official logo of Manjeera Telugu Warrors was launched at a press meet held in The Park Hotel in Hyderabad. It was attended by Venkatesh, Vishnu, Srikanth, Siddharth, Nitin, Tarun, Adarsh Bala Krishnan, Khuyyum and Raghu who are going to play for Telugu Warriors. Venkatesh is the captain and Vishnu is the owner. Sanjay G is the co-owner, Chamundinath is the selector and Vanka Pratap is the chief coach. Vivekanand from Manjeera group also attended this meet.
Vishnu Manchu said, “Though my father was little dicey about me buying Telugu Warriors team, it was Venkatesh who supported me in it. All teammates stood by me. Cricket is a passion in India. The matches will take places on 4th, 5th, 11th and 12th in Bangalore, Chennai, Vizag and Hyderabad respectively. I would like to thank Manjeera group for being logo sponsor. Since a lot of money is involved in it, we are practicing and participate with uttermost dedication and seriousness.”
Venkatesh said, “It feels wonderful to play for Telugu warriors. All the matches are going to be very interesting. Four teams - Telugu Warriors, Mumbai Heroes, Chennai Rhinos and Karnataka Bulldozers are participating in this league.”
Manjeera’s Vivekanand said, “Cricket is a religion in this country and movie-watching is the favorite pastine. We sensed this synergy of film stars playing cricket and came forward to sponsor this team. We are happy to be involved in such a prestigious event in our 25th year of Manjeera’s journey.”
