Sky247, together with the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB), announced a "powered by" sponsorship for the Emirates D20 Tournament. The brand Sky247.net will partner with the competition, scheduled to start December 6. 

Sky247.net is a sports news portal that covers multiple sports, such as Cricket, Tennis, Football, and Basketball. Partnering with the ECB for the D20 Tournament is viewed as a big opportunity that will allow the brand to rise to another level. 

After the success of the D10 Tournament, ECB is set to host a 20-over competition, scheduled to play from December 6 to December 24. Called Emirates D20 Tournament, the competition will feature 6 teams and will be used as a stage for talented young players to prove their ability to be part of the UAE Cricket Team. 

The tournament will have 33 games, featuring teams representing UAE's cricket councils. A mix of senior players and Emirates' biggest youth prospects in the tournament are seen as a big step in establishing a strong National Cricket Team in the UAE.
