LiveSport.co.uk to Sponsor Pro Series

23 Apr

LiveSport Pro Series Cricket Scotland is delighted to announce that the newly formed 2013 Pro Series will be sponsored by LiveSport.co.uk, while OnlineWillsUK.com will become the official shirt sponsors of the two Pro teams for the 2013 season.

The deal will strengthen the relationship between the National Governing Body and LiveSport.co.uk, who recently became Cricket Scotland’s official ticketing partner.

The competition will now be called the LiveSport.co.uk Pro Series. 

The two new “Pro Teams” will feature Scotland’s very best players, including all fourteen Scottish based players who are centrally contracted to Cricket Scotland.

OnlineWillsUK.com General Manager Greg Murphy commented “We are delighted to get involved in the new LiveSport.co.uk Pro-series as shirt sponsors.  We wish both teams the best of luck. All the staff at OnlineWillsUK.com are looking forward to some exciting cricket.”

The newly-announced structure replaces the previous Regional Series and will provide a stepping stone for the best players in the country to stake their claim for a place in the national side.

The two newly-established teams have been branded the Reivers, which will be drawn from the best players from the West and the South, and the Highlanders, which will cover the East and the North of the country.

Cricket Scotland Head of Performance, Andy Tennant, noted “We are delighted to have both Livesport.co.uk on board as the title sponsor for the Pro Series and OnlineWillsUK.com as the team’s shirt sponsors.

It is great to build on our existing relationship with a growing Scottish company. Like ourselves, they are passionate about cricket and we look forward to growing the Pro Series in partnership with them.”

Greig Hopcroft, Operations Manager at LiveSport.co.uk, said “We are delighted to get involved in the excellent new Pro Series for 2013.  This is exactly what the country’s best players need to take that next step.  LiveSport.co.uk are already involved with ticketing but are delighted to support this new series and look forward to seeing how the tournament progresses.”
