Cricket South Africa Renew Cooking Oil Sponsorship
December 7, 2011
Cricket South Africa (CSA) and the Willowton Group, clinic manufacturers of Sunfoil Pure Sunflower Cooking Oil, have extended the Sunfoil Test sponsorship to the three-match series between South Africa and Sri Lanka, starting at SuperSport Park on December 15.
The sponsorship will have the same elements of the deal that the CSA struck up for the Sunfoil Test Series between the Proteas and Australia which took place last month.
CSA CEO Gerald Majola, Said: “We were delighted to welcome the Willowton Group to the CSA family for the Sunfoil Test series against Australia and we are equally delighted that they have extended their commitment to our great game.
“Their commitment isn’t just to cricket. They are also involved in cricket development at grassroots level and in education through their own Trust fund.
“Test cricket is currently flourishing very strongly as has been seen through recent results between the Proteas and Australia as well as the series between India and the West Indies. The Sunfoil sponsorship will help the five-day game to continue to flourish as we embark on an exceptionally busy period with successive series against Sri Lanka, New Zealand, England and Australia.”
Abdul Razak Moosa, Willowton Group CEO added: “We are delighted to be back on board again with the CSA and the Proteas Test Cricket team for the series against Sri Lanka.”
“The previous test series was a huge success for our brand Sunfoil and we wanted to show the loyal Proteas supporters that we are not a “flash in the pan” and here to support Cricket on a National level long term, whether it be from a team of development perspective.
Action plans have already been set in place for the R300 000 ($37,046) raised for the Sunfoil Education Fund in the last Test series. Every rand makes a great difference to each young cricketing life and application forms for bursaries have already been sent out to the Unions participating in the Sunfoil development programmes around the country, so keep an eye out in the media for the progress of this exciting initiative. We are hoping to have boys and girls benefiting from this foundation by the beginning of next year.”
