The Sydney Sixers have announced Nestlé Purina Petcare as a Major Partner for BBL03, rounding out their sponsorship portfolio for the upcoming season.
The Nestlé Purina brand RUFFS, the range providing Aussie dogs with Doggishly good treats, will appear on the Sixers playing and training kit as well as running a range of digital content, offering money can’t buy experiences and activating at certain Sixers home games.
With a number of Sixers players and staff owning their own pooches, the sponsorship will surely be a popular one, already winning over Teddy Starc, Archie and Kenzie Copeland and Bear Abbott.
“Dogs are such a beloved part of any family and it’s no different in cricket,” said Sixers General Manager Dom Remond.
“We are really looking forward to working with the team from Nestlé Purina Petcare on some great activations as well as with our players and their dogs, it’s a brand we’ll be able to have a lot of fun with.”
“We’re delighted at the partnership between Nestlé Purina Petcare and Sydney Sixers in this year’s BBL03 campaign. We’re looking forward to the season and hope the Sydney Sixers can bring home the title,” said David Grant, General Manager Nestlé Purina Petcare Australia.
The signing of Purina also completes the sponsorship stable for the upcoming KFC T20 Big Bash League season.
“We are thrilled to welcome Nestlé Purina Petcare to our sponsorship portfolio,” said Cricket NSW General Manager of Commercial Brett Richardson.
“This partnership sees all of our major sponsorship properties for BBL03 locked away which is a strong reflection about the anticipation and interest about the up-coming tournament.”
BBL|03 is now only 11 days away and the final preparations are underway at Sydney’s Party Central, the SCG, as the Sixers work to ‘magentify’ the town.
Four home matches over the course of the school holidays and a ticket price of just $42.50 for a family of four make this year’s Big Bash the hottest and best value ticket in town.
Tickets are on sale now through Ticketek.
