Fine to deliver protective products such as face masks, sanitizer, health supplements and anti-bacterial wipes.
The partnership will see Fine provide the league with a variety of best-in-class hygiene products, such as face masks, sanitizer, health supplements and anti-bacterial wipes for use across the league’s three venues and associated facilities, as well as joint contribution on a host of mutually beneficial marketing benefits.
Fine will use its expansive UAE-wide network of retail, leisure and catering distribution points to promote the league, including ticket promotions and competitions, in the build up to and during the inaugural season.
Coming hot on the heels of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, at which Fine was an Official Partner, this collaboration will see the DP World ILT20 receive an official stamp of hygiene approval from the prestigious Medical Wellness Association (MWA) – the first cricket event to receive this accolade.
Commenting on the partnership, Mubashshir Usmani, General Secretary, Emirates Cricket Board said, "It has long been our intention for DP World ILT20 to partner with leading consumer brands in the Middle East, and we are delighted to enter into this relationship with Fine. In securing this valued arrangement the league has secured some fantastic marketing benefits with one of the GCC’s most trusted companies. We regularly see Fine’s products and promotions on display at various high-profile sports events, and it is testament to both the local and global appeal of the league that such a pioneering brand has chosen to associate with it. We thank Fine for their support and look forward to a mutually successful association.”
James Lafferty, CEO of Fine Hygienic Holding said: “We are excited to have entered into a partnership with DP World International League T20. Cricket is one of the most popular sports in the UAE, and, this (agreement) further proves the trust our brands enjoy and we are happy to ensure that spectators, that will gather from across the world to enjoy watching the best T20 players in the game today in action, feel safe thanks to our market-leading hygiene solutions.”
