SS Events Pvt Ltd is organising the second Century Bank Corporate Super Sixes at the TU grounds from September 26 to 30.

The six-a-side 24-team tournament will be a league-cum-knockout event where top two finishers from each of the eight groups will make it to the pre-quarterfinals. Century Bank is sponsoring the tournament and is in its second year in its three-year partnership with SS Events.
Century Bank has been providing Rs 600,000 to SS for each edition. While the tournament will be played in white ball and coloured dress, the organisers will provide jersey to the respective teams. The champions of the event will get a free entry into the next edition.
SS Events CEO Raman Shiwakoti said the tournament will help in establishing smooth relations between the corporate houses. “The members from the corporate houses will be able to perform at a single platform in this tournament. We are expecting an exciting event ahead,” said Shiwakoti.
Century Bank Deputy CEO Jeevan Bhattarai said the partnership with SS comes as a part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). “We have been focusing on health, education and sports as part of our CSR initiatives and this tournament has been a part of it. The tournament went pretty well in the previous edition and we are expecting it to get bigger this time,” said Bhattarai during a press conference on Wednesday.
Shiwakoti said his company had focused to come up with additional events—Inter-college and Club Level cricket tournaments—but their preparation was hampered by the April 25 Great Quake and they had to be content with organising the Super Sixes event. Civil Bank is the defending champions of the tournament.
