The three-year partnership sees Gallagher become an official supporter of Hampshire Cricket with its branding featuring prominently on Hampshire’s County Championship kit.
Gallagher is known for its support of grass roots sports and is also the title partner of Premiership Rugby. The broker works with sports clubs across the UK providing specialist insurance products and services.
Gallagher acquired previous Hampshire Cricket partner, Portmore, in 2018 and this partnership marks the continuation and extension of the Club’s relationship with the business.
Tom James, Hampshire Cricket’s Head of Sales & Commercial Partnerships, said; ‘’We’re delighted to welcome Gallagher as a new partner and we are excited to work with a business that shares our passion for Hampshire’s local business community. As the Bob Willis Trophy gets underway, it marks the start of a long-term partnership, where we look forward to success both on and off the pitch.”
David Macaulay, Head of Office for Gallagher in Southampton, said: “We are huge cricket fans at Gallagher and we are very pleased to be partnering with Hampshire Cricket. We are passionate about supporting sport in the communities where we are based, so it was a natural step for us to put our brand in the eyes of cricket followers in the county.
“The season is getting underway from the start of August, which is terrific news for cricket fans, and we look forward to enjoying some play over the coming months.”
