Cayman Islands Department of Tourism continue County Championship shirt sponsorship
7 April 2021
Gloucestershire Cricket are delighted to announce that Cayman Islands Department of Tourism (CIDOT) is continuing its partnership with Gloucestershire Cricket as the front of County Championship shirt sponsor for the 2021 season.
The CIDOT logo will be front and centre of the 2021 LV= County Championship shirt, the second season running that they will be the Club’s main First-class shirt sponsor.
Adrian White, Cayman Islands Department of Tourism UK & Europe Regional Manager commented:
“We are thrilled to remain part of the Gloucestershire Cricket family and have thoroughly enjoyed working with the club so far. As the world re-emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, we are looking forward to welcoming fans and players back to our beautiful islands in order for them to enjoy the luxury holiday experience they have no doubt been craving for the past 12 months.
Our uncrowded, award-winning beaches and status as the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean sets Cayman apart, and it’s a well-known fact that cricket and the Caribbean go hand-in-hand!
We wish the Gloucestershire side all the best for the upcoming season and look forward to a fantastic summer of cricket!”
Members and supporters will be accustomed to the CIDOT branding, not only because of the striking championship shirt worn last year – which celebrated the Club’s rich history – but also through the team’s digital channels and live streaming service last season, where they appeared prominently on the popular Gloscricket online Match Centre.
Neil Priscott, Gloucestershire Cricket Commercial Director added:
“As we approach a full season of four-day cricket, we are delighted that the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism will continue as our County Championship front of shirt sponsor for the 2021 season. We thoroughly enjoyed working with them in 2020 and it is great to have them on board for another exciting summer of cricket.
It is a partnership in its infancy but has already proved popular with our supporters, who have entered the numerous competitions we have organised with the Cayman team, and we believe it will continue to grow and flourish in the coming months. We look forward to developing this partnership in 2021, and we can’t wait to see Chris Dent and the Gloucestershire side back in their County Championship shirts tomorrow for the first game of the season.”
The Cayman Islands is located in the western Caribbean Sea, south of Cuba and north west of Jamaica. The overseas British territory is comprised of three islands, each offering a unique experience from the barefoot elegance of Grand Cayman to the adventurous spirit of Cayman Brac and the tranquillity of Little Cayman.
Well known for dining, world-class diving, beautiful beaches, tranquil turquoise seas and incredible wildlife, the Cayman Islands offers a memorable and luxurious experience for visitors of all ages and interests.
The LV= County Championship commences tomorrow (April 8) at the Bristol County Ground with Gloucestershire taking on Surrey. Among other mouth-watering fixtures taking place this season, Gloucestershire supporters will be looking forward to the visit of Somerset in May and hosting Middlesex and Hampshire at the Cheltenham Cricket Festival in July.
In the lead up to the Club’s opening match of the season, Gloucestershire Cricket, in association with Cayman Islands Department of Tourism, are giving away a County Championship shirt and a chance to win a holiday for two to the Cayman Islands.
