Ritesh Patel CEO

Ritesh Patel, a visionary entrepreneur from Gujarat, India, is spearheading the transformation of cricket in the United States as the owner of the SAMP Group and SAMP Army Cricket Franchise. Patel is dedicated to elevating the sport to new heights in a nation where it has historically played a secondary role to others. Samp Group: Based in the USA, Samp Group is a driving force in the global expansion of short-format cricket, particularly in the US. Co-owning UST10Masters and the Samp Army cricket franchise, the group competes in international leagues such as Abu Dhabi T10, US Masters T10, and Zim Afro. Renowned players like Moeen Ali, Faf Du Plesis, Jason Holder, David Miller, Shimron Hetmayer, Mahesh, Tikshana, Gurbaz, and Parthiv Patel, among others, represent Samp Army. The group's approach includes domestic tournaments, coaching camps in the US, and strategic sponsorships, supported by a robust cricket management team and mentored by Bollywood star Suniel Shetty. USA Masters T10 and Shorter Formats: Recognising the appeal of shorter formats like T10, Ritesh Patel owns the USA Masters T10 league, aiming to make cricket more accessible to a broader audience through fast-paced, action-packed games. The league has attracted over 100 international master cricketers, including Chris Gayle, Dwayne Smith, the Pathan Brothers (Yusuf and Irfan), Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh, Suresh Raina, Shahid Afridi, and many others, enhancing its international appeal and showcasing high-quality cricketing action. Entrepreneurial Success: Beyond cricket, Ritesh Patel has achieved success in diverse business domains, notably the hotel industry with franchises like Radisson, Choice Hotels, Wyndham, and IHG. His interests also extend to convenience stores, gas stations, and an indoor multi-sport complex, demonstrating his business acumen and commitment to promoting sports and entertainment. Vision for the Future: Ritesh Patel's vision for cricket is ambitious, aiming to establish short-format cricket, especially T10, globally with a focus on the US. He seeks to elevate the status of cricket in the United States to international levels, with the ultimate goal of inclusion in the Olympics, potentially as early as 2028.
