July 19, 2019
Surrey County Cricket Club (CCC) has extended its partnership with Kia Motors until 2024.
Under the agreement, Kia Motors give its name to Surrey’s home ground and international Test match venue, the Kia Oval. The company will also retain its branding around the stadium, as well as on the front of the shirts for Surrey’s men’s and women’s county sides.
Charlie Hodgson, managing director of Surrey CCC, said: “Kia have been the best possible partners for the last ten years, a true friend to cricket and it’s wonderful to continue to have them in the Surrey family until at least 2024.
“As a major worldwide brand with strong UK roots in Surrey, the links couldn’t be any stronger and we hugely look forward to working with them in an ever-closer manner as our partnership continues.”
Paul Philpott, president and chief executive of Kia Motors (UK) added: “Our partnership with the team at Surrey CCC and the Kia Oval has proved fruitful both on and off the pitch, and our long-standing sponsorship has seen both the Kia brand and all the Surrey teams grow from strength to strength and we are looking forward to supporting both the men’s and women’s teams in the upcoming T20 and Kia Super League matches.”
