Glamorgan Cricket has announced that Welsh energy supplier SWALEC is to be its shirt sponsor for the coming season.
The sponsorship builds on SWALEC’s substantial commitment to cricket in Wales and will see the company become Glamorgan’s official back of shirt sponsor during the 2012/13 season.
SWALEC’s logo will feature on the back of both the white and coloured shirts for all competitions this year.
The Cardiff-based electricity and gas supplier has a long standing relationship with Welsh cricket through its 10-year sponsorship deal of the SWALEC Stadium. The company is also in the final year of its three-year sponsorship of the SWALEC Premier League.
Glamorgan Cricket Sales Director Pete Grzonka said: “We are pleased that we have secured partnership with SWALEC - a brand which is extremely well-known to communities across Wales. We are excited to be working with SWALEC and look forward to building the relationship during the season. We are working on some very exciting ideas which we hope to announce in the near future.”
Jonny Petrie, head of sponsorship for SWALEC, said: “We are delighted to partner with Glamorgan Cricket. We are proud to support our local sporting teams and the Glamorgan Cricket sponsorship for the next year is an exciting prospect.
“This relationship sits neatly within our sponsorship portfolio and further demonstrates SWALEC’s commitment to actively contribute to the communities in which we operate. We look forward to working with Glamorgan to boost cricket across Wales. SWALEC wishes everyone at Glamorgan Cricket and its supporters a successful season."
The commercial partnership with Glamorgan Cricket is further evidence of SWALEC’s commitment to sport at all levels in Wales and complements its activity with the sponsorship of the WRU.
