Toyota Australia and HCLTech have upgraded their partnerships with Cricket Australia (CA) to include displaying their global brands on the iconic Australian playing shirts.
Toyota will be the men’s front-of-shirt partner and appear on the sleeve of the men’s and women’s playing shirts, while HCLTech will remain on the sleeve of the men’s playing shirt and men’s training apparel.
After Australia’s ICC Men’s World Cup victory, HCLTech will continue as CA’s shirt partner for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup next year to be played in the US across Dallas, Miami and New York.
The upgraded partnership for the 2023-24 season enhances Australian Cricket’s relationship with two of the world’s leading brands in the automotive and technology industries.
Toyota is a long-standing supporter of Australian Cricket and its partnership with CA includes the Australian men’s and women’s national teams, the KFC BBL and Weber WBBL as well as CA’s inclusion and diversity programmes and community cricket through the Toyota Good for Cricket Program.
HCLTech has been a CA Digital Technology Partner since 2019 helping transform CA’s digital assets including cricket.com.au, the CA Live app and PlayCricket, while digitising and streamlining community cricket processes.
Cricket Australia Executive General Manager Broadcast & Commercial, Stephanie Beltrame said:
“We are delighted to further strengthen our relationships with our valued partners Toyota and HCLTech, and that their prestigious brands will appear on the Australian shirts this summer.”
“We have taken the opportunity to separate the playing and training uniforms for this season to amplify the roles and prominence each holds.
