Cricket Scotland are delighted to announce that leading national accountancy group PROBIZ will be a main commercial partner of Cricket Scotland in 2012.
PROBIZ branding will adorn both the Scotland and Scottish Saltires playing and training kit in a significant new relationship between the two organisations, who have agreed to support and develop each other’s operations.
PROBIZ are existing commercial partners with many leading sports organisations. Cricket Scotland has joined the PROBIZ cricket stable that includes County Champions Lancashire, T20 Champions Leicestershire, Hampshire, Kent, Essex and Sussex. As well as being a main partner of Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United of the football world, PROBIZ are also heavily involved in rugby league as partners of Challenge Cup winners Wigan Warriors, Castleford Tigers and 'Double Winning' Featherstone Rovers. In addition, PROBIZ are Commercial Partners of the League Managers Association (LMA).
The distinctive PROBIZ branding seen on club shirts and assuming stadium naming rights, is now widely recognised around the professional sports grounds in England and will now make its first venture north of the border.
As Scotland enters another important season of games, including the World T20 qualifier, league matches in the Pepsi ICC WCL Championship and the ODI against England on the 12th of August, the securing of such a high profile national partner is a major boost to the young Scotland side.
Founder and Managing Director of PROBIZ Excellence (PROBIZ) Feisal Nahaboo said, "I'm delighted to be working with mutual cooperation alongside Cricket Scotland. They have great ambition and are well led both on and off the field. It's a privilege to be working with Cricket Scotland who I'm sure will continue with their recent resurgence on the playing field. We are not just offering sponsorship support but have reached agreement to support one another's businesses. We expect to announce further ventures and support for Scottish sporting clubs over the next few weeks."
Roddy Smith, Chief Executive of Cricket Scotland commented, ‘We are delighted to have attracted PROBIZ as a major sponsor for our national men’s team. They are a young and ambitious firm who have made major strides forward in recent years. They have a significant pedigree and track record in working proactively with their sporting partners and we look forward to assisting them grow their business in Scotland.’
The PROBIZ branding will be seen for the first time on the Scotland playing kit during their forthcoming tour to Sharjah, Sri Lanka and Dubai.
