Hollywoodbets have been involved with the Dolphins for two seasons moving from an associate sponsor role to the title sponsors last season and Devin Heffer, Media and Communications Executive at Hollywoodbets, felt that increasing their involvement in the KZN Cricket union was an easy decision to make.
“Hollywoodbets has built a tremendous relationship with the KZN Cricket Union through our sponsorship of the Dolphins franchise and our contributions to development cricket – through our community programs and cricket club sponsorships,” Heffer said.
“We were approached by the KZNCU to sponsor both the KZN Coastal and KZN Inland teams in the Africa T20 Cup, extending our sponsorship to the amateur setup. Our commitment is to build strong amateur teams that will ultimately lead to a strong franchise team.”
“We believe that through our sponsorship, the KZNCU will be able to invest in the province’s up and coming cricketers, providing better facilities, equipment and coaching to these future stars.
“The Africa T20 Cup is also a great opportunity for these cricketers to showcase their talent, especially those on the brink of breaking into the franchise setup.”
“The Hollywoodbets brand brings with it an incredible passion and professionalism, and we are extremely proud to be associated with it,” Strydom commented.
“The fact that the brand will now be extended to our two semi-pro teams speaks volumes about their commitment to spreading the game to all areas of KZN.”
