Cayman Islands Department of Tourism Celebrates Renewal of Gloucestershire CCC Partnership
The Cayman Islands Department of Tourism (CIDOT) is continuing its partnership with Gloucestershire Cricket as the front of County Championship shirt sponsor for the 2021 season as the team take on Surrey today in its first game of the season.
Celebrating the partnership and the start of the season, the launch video shows fans some excellent batting from the Gloucestershire side and a perfect catch in the Cayman Islands to get everyone in the mood for supporting their team.
Adrian White, Cayman Islands Department of Tourism UK & Europe Regional Manager commented:
“We are thrilled to remain part of the Gloucestershire Cricket family and have thoroughly enjoyed working with the club so far. As the world re-emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, we are looking forward to welcoming fans and players back to our beautiful islands in order for them to enjoy the luxury holiday experience they have no doubt been craving for the past 12 months.
Our uncrowded, award-winning beaches and status as the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean sets Cayman apart, and it’s a well-known fact that cricket and the Caribbean go hand-in-hand!
We wish the Gloucestershire side all the best for the upcoming season and look forward to a fantastic summer of cricket!”
Members and supporters of Gloucestershire County Cricket Club will be accustomed to the CIDOT branding, not only because of the striking championship shirt worn last year – which celebrated the Club’s rich history – but also through the team’s digital channels and live streaming service last season, where they appeared prominently on the popular Gloscricket online Match Centre.
Neil Priscott, Gloucestershire Cricket Commercial Director added:
“As we approach a full season of four-day cricket, we are delighted that the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism will continue as our County Championship front of shirt sponsor for the 2021 season. We thoroughly enjoyed working with them in 2020 and it is great to have them on board for another exciting summer of cricket.
It is a partnership in its infancy but has already proved popular with our supporters, who have entered the numerous competitions we have organised with the Cayman team, and we believe it will continue to grow and flourish in the coming months. We look forward to developing this partnership in 2021, and we can’t wait to see Chris Dent and the Gloucestershire side back in their County Championship shirts tomorrow for the first game of the season.”
The CIDOT logo will be front and centre of the 2021 LV= County Championship shirt - the second season running that they will be the Club’s main First-class shirt sponsor.
