Sunfoil bids farewell to the Dolphins
Durban – After five years as the title sponsors of the Sunfoil Dolphins,
the Willowton Group has ended their title sponsorship with the
Durban-based franchise as they focus their interests on their involvement
in national and international cricket.
Rajesh Behari, the Acting CEO of the Dolphins, said that the partnership
with Sunfoil had been a mutually rewarding one and the Willowton Group had
left a distinct legacy on cricket in KwaZulu-Natal.
“We have agreed to part ways and will cherish the strides that we made
together,” said Behari.
“The Willowton Group’s impact on cricket development in our province was
profound; and we are committed to keeping up this important work and look
forward to their continued support of development cricket in KZN.”
“It has been an exciting and rewarding journey to partner the Dolphins, a
team whose interests have been very close to our hearts for the past five
years,” said Shoaib Moosa, Willowton Group Chief Commercial Officer.
“The title sponsorship of the Dolphins was our introduction to cricket at
a national level, and proved to be a rewarding way to promote and build
the Sunfoil brand.
“This led to our sponsorship of Proteas Test cricket and the sponsorship
of the four-day Sunfoil Domestic Series, which we will maintain as a
platform to keep the Sunfoil brand associated with cricket, together with
the Sunfoil Township cricket programmes and the Sunfoil Education Trust
providing bursaries to children coming through the Sunfoil development
cricket programmes that show promise for the future and require financial
assistance,” he added.
“We are confident that the franchise will build on what we have achieved
together, and we will always be loyal supporters of the Dolphins and look
forward to following their progress closely in years to come,” said Moosa.
The Dolphins will be announcing their new title sponsor on Thursday
