Port of Tyne has extended its shirt sponsorship with Durham County Cricket Club.
It will continue as the club’s Royal London One-Day Cup shirt sponsor for the next three years, taking the partnership through to 2019.
The Port has become the recognisable face on Durham’s One-Day kit and will continue to help promote its business around the world.
Newly-appointed Durham CCC chairman Sir Ian Botham said: “Port of Tyne are a long-standing, valued sponsor of the club and their name has been synonymous with the on-field successes over recent years.
“They have shown outstanding commitment to the club over a number of years and the next three years gives us the chance to build on an already exceptional relationship.”
Susan Wear, director of corporate affairs at Port of Tyne, said: “It’s important we get behind the club as it takes on the challenges ahead to retain first class county cricket – and the national and international profile that brings – for the whole region.”
She added: “We’re also particularly proud to be working in partnership with Durham’s Foundation and to be supporting their work in local schools.”
