The Hundred is excited to announce a new partnership with The Croods 2: A New Age, DreamWorks Animation’s latest family adventure blockbuster starring Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds which arrives in cinemas July 16.
The partnership builds on The Hundred’s desire to take cricket to a family audience and inspire kids to pick up a bat and ball. Both brands will work together on several initiatives at games and in the cinema to excite families during what promises to be an unforgettable summer.
Families will be able to enter competitions to win tickets for The Hundred, which starts with a historic women’s game at the Kia Oval on 21 July.
The film also celebrates the strong female characters who are heroes of the story – a message that aligns with The Hundred as a champion of women in sport. The competition will open with a standalone women’s fixture – the first time this has happened for a major sporting event in the UK.
Rob Calder, Commercial Director of The Hundred said: “We’re really excited by this partnership as it’s something the sport and film industry haven’t done before. Working together to engage younger audiences and families in cricket via film is new and inspiring.”
