Hollywoodbets signs new three year deal
Durban – The KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union and the Hollywoodbets Dolphins
are pleased to announce that title sponsor Hollywoodbets have signed a new
three year sponsorship deal with the franchise.
Having taken over as title sponsor on a short-term deal at the beginning
of the 2016/17 season, the Durban-based betting agency and KZNCU are
excited to announce that they will be extending their relationship.
“The extension of the Hollywoodbets contract shows great faith in the
Dolphins brand and team,” KZNCU Chief Executive Officer Heinrich Strydom
“We are extremely grateful to have this wonderful company on board and we
are looking forward to taking this partnership to the next level in the
Hollywoodbets have been at the forefront of helping promote the stadium
experience for fans and have been pro-active in organising a number of
match-day activations and initiatives where their staff have formed part
of the DolFAN Army.
Media and Communications Executive, and long-time Dolphins fan, Devin
Heffer felt that after one season of learning the ropes as a title
sponsor, Hollywoodbets are ready to immerse themselves in the role.
“We have formed a relationship with the players, coaching staff and
administration. We feel that over the past two years we have become more
than just a sponsor - we are one team,” an excited Heffer said.
“There has been a great fusion between the two brands, and we believe that
will grow to bigger and better things.
“With new leadership roles in the Hollywoodbets Dolphins camp like Khaya
Zondo as the new captain, Grant Morgan in his second season as coach, and
Heinrich Strydom as the new CEO – the Dolphins are getting the right mix
of energy and enthusiasm into the franchise setup.”
Hollywoodbets have also seen this extension of their involvement with the
Dolphins as an opportunity to get involved in growing the game of cricket
across the province.
“This sponsorship also allows Hollywoodbets to continue the development of
cricket in KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa.
“We are making a big impact on the club scene, the semi-professional teams
(Africa T20 Cup), as well as the community scene.
“Our Community Cricket programme last season saw 95 players and 5 coaches
from 5 different clubs benefit through this sponsorship.
“We know Heinrich has great plans for taking the community and development
projects further, and we want to be a part of that! This sponsorship will
allow us to continue working in this area that we are so passionate
about,” Heffer stressed.
