YOUR TEAM. YOUR RICHELIEU. YOUR WAY
The Namibian Eagles cricket team and Richelieu have sealed their recent partnership with a celebratory event held at Wanderers Sports Club today. With a generous splash of orange on this prestigious Windhoek cricket pitch, invited guests, which included stakeholders, trade partners, players and media gathered for an all-out cricket and brandy affair.
Richelieu has been involved with Cricket Namibia for the past three years being the main sponsor for the annual and well known T20 league and the main advertising sponsor at the Wanders Sports Grounds.
The reveal was an exciting culmination of months of negations and discussions to ensure all International Cricket Council (ICC) regulations were met. This announcement amplifies the
partnership between Cricket Namibia and Richelieu while guests were introduced to the newly branded RICHELIEU EAGLES and the “Your Team. Your Richelieu. Your Way.” campaign
Richelieu is about discovering the richness in life’s everyday moments and the moments that bring us together. The campaign is centered around giving cricket fans the chance to celebrate their love for their team (and Richelieu) with the freedom to do things their own way.
Distell Media, Events & Sponsorship Lead Southern Africa, Kavir Gangiah said “We are very excited to launch our sponsorship and our new campaign Your Team. Your Richelieu. Your Way. In truth we believe every sports fan, not only cricket fans, can resonate with this sense of passion for their beloved team and the rich rewarding moments, in both the highs and lows that fans experience. We look forward to making Richelieu part of those moments”.
Cricket Namibia CEO, Johan Muller said: “This is an important sponsorship for the RICHELIEU EAGLES who showcased their incredible talent on the world stage during the recently held International T20 series. We are very excited to have Richelieu on board as the main sponsor for our national team who continually make Namibia very proud. Cricket Namibia looks forward to the ongoing partnership with the local and Southern African Richelieu marketing and sponsorship teams.”
Leon Fouche, Distell Namibia MD added: “Distell Namibia’s relationship with Cricket Namibia spans over many years. We are immensely proud to stand here today and announce this significant sponsorship which further entrenches our commitment to cricket in Namibia. We would like to thank the leadership and each player in the national team for their commitment and hard work towards achieving international status and representing Namibia on formidable cricket platforms. Richelieu is about creating momentous moments and we
believe this has been achieved.”
