“The Stage is Set: Asia Cup 2023 Promises Thrilling India-Pakistan Showdowns

With the commencement date of August 30 and the closing ceremony on September 17, the much-anticipated Asia Cup 2023 is ready to unfold. The tournament is poised to deliver electrifying clashes, notably the fierce encounters between cricketing giants India and Pakistan. This rivalry is expected to drive soaring demand among viewers and advertisers alike. The upcoming Asia Cup will witness not one, but two group-stage clashes between India and Pakistan. And should circumstances align, a potential third face-off might take place in the finals.

Reports indicate that Disney Star, the Indian arm of the renowned Walt Disney Co., is on track to amass advertising revenues ranging from ₹350 crore to ₹400 crore during the Asia Cup. The intense anticipation surrounding these clashes was palpable as tickets for the India-Pakistan match on September 2 vanished almost instantaneously.

According to insiders reported by Mint, a brief 10-second advertisement during the game could command a price of approximately ₹25-₹30 lakh. Predictions also hint that Disney Star could potentially rake in a staggering ad revenue of ₹400 crore from the Asia Cup 2023.
