Turner International India VP and deputy GM – entertainment networks, South Asia Monica Tata said, “Instituted in 1999, Toon Cricket has successfully managed to create a combination of two Cs, Cartoons + Cricket, a winning formula for Indian kids and adults. As Cartoon Network toons gear up to sweat it out with Reebok cricketing stalwarts, Toon Cricket 2008 will be the ultimate sporting extravaganza for kids packed with fun, action and excitement.”

Reebok India Company executive director, marketing Sajid Shamim said, “We are all aware that kids have a constant desire for action. They are the ones who have sports on their mind most of the time, aspiring to be a leading sports star. To be at the game is the only thing on their mind and collaborating with Cartoon Network, we attempt to celebrate this spirit of the child, and support such kids in bringing them closer to their dream.”

Toon Cricket 2008 will be co-sponsored by Nutrine Maha Choco and Parle-G. McDonalds Happy Meal, Boomer, Parachute Starz, Zapak, Berger Paints and Kissan Ketchup are the associate sponsors.

The channel will also launch an on-air and off-air promotional campaign featuring Cartoon Network’s toon characters interacting with the cricketers. An on-air contest will be aired on the channel from 10 November -7 December from Monday to Friday at 7-10 pm.

Each week, ten kids will get a chance to win invitations of the matches, Reebok cricketing gear and sports apparel (autographed Reebok bats and Reebok caps) apart from other daily prizes.
