HSBC Merchant Services, wholly-owned subsidiary of Global Payments, the largest independent payment processor in the UK, has renewed its sponsorship of Leicestershire County Cricket Club for a second year.
HSBC Merchant Services, whose head office of 300 employees is Leicester-based, enjoyed a fruitful first year as sponsor of the team, which helped it to increase its work in the local community. On this basis, it was a natural decision to renew the contract for 2011.
In addition to sponsoring the team, financial support will go towards the Indoor Cricket School at Grace Road, helping to develop the skills of the county’s keen, young cricketers.
Chris Davies, Managing Director of HSBC Merchant Services, said: "Giving something back to the community is of great importance to us and we are proud to be able to sponsor our local club for another year.
"We are excited to see what the season has in store for Grace Road. We will be supporting the team all the way."
