DMU become our new Official Club Partner

Leicestershire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce De Montfort University as our new Official Club Partner.

The two organisations have worked closely together in the past and De Montfort University has now signed a deal that sees them become our main sponsor in 2015.

The partnership will see De Montfort University in prime position on the front of the Leicestershire CCC playing kits next season and the university will also have branding around the ground and in club publications.

There will also be the opportunity for De Montfort University students to receive expert coaching from the club, experience a day in the life of a cricketer, use the indoor and outdoor nets at Grace Road, and come along to games.

Leicestershire and Rutland Cricket Chief Executive Wasim Khan MBE said: “We are delighted to have De Montfort University as our Official Club Sponsor. We are really looking forward to continuing our valued partnership.

“We have some great events already in the diary including the Varsity cricket match at Grace Road. As well as receiving support from De Montfort University, we are committed to helping students too.

“We want to help young people with their development and careers and Leicestershire County Cricket Club will again be participating in the Graduate Champions Scheme, which has been a huge success in the past. We will also give students work experience opportunities and provide coaching and facilities for De Montfort University’s cricket team.

“The support of De Montfort University will be of huge benefit as we look to have a successful 2015 season. It is great to have such a big local organisation supporting the new era of Leicestershire and Rutland Cricket.”

De Montfort University Vice Chancellor Dominic Shellard added: “De Montfort University has been a supporter of Leicestershire County Cricket Club for many years, and we are pleased to become the main sponsor for 2015.

“This is a club with a rich history of sporting achievement and its admirable commitment to grass roots community work is mirrored in our university’s own focus on the public good. De Montfort University’s students and staff look forward to joining Leicestershire’s members and supporters to see some fine cricket at Grace Road this year.”
