ICC World Cup 2007 partners to promote event in India & Caribbean

MUMBAI: ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 officials and the tournament’s official global partners have agreed to work closely to promote the event, particularly in India. The event will air on Max in India.

Representatives from three of the four official global partners, Hero Honda, LG and Pepsi, held discussions on this matter and other related issues with ICC commercial manager Campbell Jamieson, ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 MD and CEO Chris Dehring and ICC corporate communications director Marvia Roach in Delhi, India, a few days ago.



Roach says, "The purpose of this meeting was to examine the communications and promotional plan for ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 and to see where there could be synergy between CWC 2007 planning and sponsor activity. Since India is the largest television market for international cricket, heavy promotion of the ICC CWC 2007 there is of great importance to the sponsors, and we are keen to share the excitement of the build-up to the event with the millions of fans in that country."

She also disclosed that a commitment was undertaken to hold a Caribbean showcase, with sponsor support, during the first half of next year in India. This event will promote ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 which will be hosted across nine Caribbean nations, with 16 teams vying for the title. The ICC Champions Trophy takes place in India next year.

"Apart from highlighting our brand, mascot and other aspects of the tournament, we will will also showcase the rich and diverse culture of the Caribbean that will help to make the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 a very successfull event," Roach added.

She also noted that the ICC CWC 2007 is already working on a number of promotional activities that would be extended to other major cricketing nations over the next 12 months.



Nimbus Sport International head of events and sponsor services Thomas Lavenant which represents the sponsors, thanked the ICC and CWC 2007 officials for travelling to India for the meeting.



“Good progress was made towards the promotion of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 outside the Caribbean, in particular in India. We look forward to a continued fruitful working relationship with CWC 2007, and in this regard Chris Dehring’s presence at the meeting illustrates CWC’s efforts to involve the sponsors in staging the Best Cricket World Cup Ever,” said Lavenant.
