The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) today announced Royal London had renewed its title sponsorship of men’s and women’s domestic and international one-day cricket for a further two years.

It will encompass next summer’s five-match one-day series against Australia and a three-match series against India as England men’s one-day squad build towards the ICC Cricket World Cup to be staged in this country in 2019.

The UK’s largest mutual life, pensions and investment company has been an ECB sponsor since 2014 as part of an agreement which also includes support for England women’s one-day cricket and ECB’s age-group competitions at recreational level. As well as competition naming rights, the sponsorship encompasses access to England players, in-ground advertising and corporate hospitality.

Commenting on the deal, ECB’s Commercial Director Sanjay Patel said: “It’s exciting that Royal London want to extend their relationship with cricket still further – building on the successful partnership we’ve forged together over the past four years.

“With the England’s men’s one-day team victorious in all three one-day series last summer, the England women’s team winning the ICC Women’s World Cup and the Royal London One-Day Cup serving up a memorable Lord’s final, the 50-Over format continues to enjoy a significant media profile and offer valuable brand exposure.

“We will be aiming to make this partnership even stronger over the next two years and would like to thank everyone at Royal London for being such enthusiastic supporters of cricket at all levels.”
