Aiming to promote the cricket culture amongst ethnic communities MoneyGram International, a leading global transfer and payment services company, has launched cooperation with Cyprus Cricket Association, supporting the cricket players and fans of the island.
The cooperation was initiated, following the successful MoneyGram sponsorship with the Italian Cricket Federation. Since 2011 MoneyGram is an official commercial partner of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and has made a commitment to support all the major ICC cricket tournaments around the world until 2015.
“MoneyGram is proud to start this cooperation”, says Richard Meredith, senior regional director of South Eastern Europe & Turkey. “By collaborating with Cyprus Cricket Association, we are supporting the Federation initiatives aiming to share the culture of cricket amongst different communities with a main focus on young people, spreading and reinforcing the noble values of sports and respect amongst different communities. On the field, it’s just cricket”.
During 2014 Cyprus Cricket Association with the support of MoneyGram International will organize various cricket events around the island.
