Hendy Mazda has announced that for the fifth consecutive year it will be an official sponsor for Hampshire Cricket team. The club invited Hendy Mazda to a special celebration event at the Rose Bowl to meet players and the newly appointed Commercial Director, Zac Toumazi.
Mazda UK has recognised the success of Hendy Mazda's sponsorship of Hampshire Cricket team, and has joined forces with the dealership to become a co-sponsor. Hendy Motors introduced Hampshire's Cricket team to the Mazda6, Mazda6 Estate and Mazda CX-7. Players will have the full use of these vehicles during the cricket season. The players attending the launch included: Sean Ervine, Dimitri Mascarenhas, manager Giles White, Friedel de Wet, Simon Jones, Kabir Ali, Nic Pothas and Jimmy Adams.
"As a big supporter of the game, it was great meeting the Hampshire lads again before the new season," said Hendy Mazda Franchise Director, Ian Mullen. "It's a real pleasure and privilege to be sponsoring cricketers of this calibre and for them to drive our range of Mazda models."
Mazda Motors UK After Sales Director, Steve Jelliss commented, "Hampshire is part of the cricketing elite, and we're absolutely delighted to have an involvement with the club's ongoing success story. Mazda is a keen supporter of sports which portray our core brand values - stylish, insightful and spirited."
To commemorate the 2011 sponsorship and as way of thanking Hendy Mazda, the Hampshire Club handed over a framed T-shirt which has been signed by the entire cricket team.Published 8 April 2011
