The Dutch Topklasse E.ON Twenty20 finals day will take place on Saturday 23rd June at the Schiedam Club Excelsior'20. The Royal Dutch Cricket Association (KNCB) is delighted to announce that E.ON will be the main sponsor of this spectacular event.
E.ON will sponsor the prize money to the extent of €5000 for the winner, the runner-up receives €2500, and the two losing semifinalists €1250 each.
Notts Sport will sponsor the 'Man of the Match' awards. Notts Sports is well known in The Netherlands cricket world because of their Notts Weave artificial mats which are extensively used in The Netherlands.
KNCB CEO Richard Cox is thrilled by the event sponsorship: "We are delighted to have secured E-on as the sponsor for the T20 Finals Day to be played at Excelsior's ground on June 23rd. E-on's relationship with Cricket in the Netherlands has been nurtured through Excelsior XX over a number of years and now they are stepping up to support a National Initiative in a very positive manner.
"We are also extremely grateful to Excelsior for hosting the day on what should be an excellent opportunity to showcase the shorter form of the game in Dutch Cricket. A number of talented players will be on display from the 4 clubs, and we wish them every success on the day," said Cox.
"Notts Sport have been good supporters of Cricket in the Netherlands for over 10 years often passing some excellent discounts on their products to all of our clubs. It's great news that they now wish to extend that relationship further by backing our Man of the Match Awards on Finals Day and we hope that this will also give them an opportunity to spread the word on their products and services to clubs that are so reliant on good artificial surfaces," concludes Cox.
