Team DerbyUniversity of Derby Deputy Chief Executive Hari Punchihewa says he is ‘incredibly proud’ after the University became Derbyshire Falcons’ main shirt sponsor for all one-day cricket in 2012.

The University of Derby will be displayed on the front of the Clydesdale Bank 40 and Friends Life t20 jerseys as the Falcons play a total of 22 Limited Overs matches during an exciting summer of cricket, four of which are already scheduled for live coverage on SKY Sports.

The partnership, which will also see University of Derby and Team Derby branding in various locations around the County Ground, furthers an already strong relationship between the two organisations.

Team Derby is the focal point for the development and delivery of sport at the University of Derby and provides students, staff, and members of the public with a world of sporting opportunity, fitness and activity.

The University of Derby’s Sport Development Manager Ollie Shearer said: “Team Derby already has a close reciprocal relationship with Derbyshire County Cricket Club; for example members of our cricket club use the Club’s Gateway Centre to train and the University has provided scholarships to members of the Club’s Academy.

“Sponsoring the shirt and perimeter advertising at the ground gives us the chance to tell the Falcons’ supporters about this work, and hopefully encourage more people to get involved in the sporting opportunities Team Derby provides to its students, and the public.”

Derbyshire Chief Executive Keith Loring said: “Striking a partnership of this magnitude with such a key partner within the Derbyshire community is testament to the progress made by the Club in recent years.

“We are delighted to be carrying the branding of the University of Derby around the country during what promises to be an entertaining season of cricket.

The University of Derby’s Deputy Chief Executive, Hari Punchihewa, added: “As a key regional supporter of sports and recreation across Derbyshire, the University is incredibly proud to be the shirt sponsor for the Falcons this summer. We wish them the very best for the season ahead, and hope to see some fantastic results.”
