Legends League Cricket has announced its tie-up with Manipal Education and Medical Group (MEMG) as the third franchise owner ahead of the second season of Legends League Cricket.

This association with a sport that’s loved by every Indian will enable us to reach out and positively impact the lives of fellow Indians to realise their dreams through World-class education and Health care services besides ensuring financial protection of Hospitalisation through Health Insurance.

Cricket connects with every age group in India and plays an indispensable role in the lives of people. It is not a mere sport but a religion that binds people together. We look forward to great seasons ahead and hope to make an impact on this ground as well.

We are happy to onboard Manipal Group as our third franchise. Cricket in our country binds everyone. Associating with the cricketing legends will help the brand even more. We are looking forward to a great association with them.
