Cape Cobras Join Forces with Leicestershire

The Six Gun Grill Cape Cobras have become the first organisation to join Leicestershire County Cricket Club’s newly-launched Global Club Cricket Network.

The network is the first to be created within cricket and has been developed by the club to share best practice and commercial knowledge between clubs operating at a similar level around the world.

“At Leicestershire we’re really committed to developing the club’s role within the professional game,” says Leicestershire County Cricket Club CEO, Sean Jarvis. “By learning and sharing knowledge between other clubs in our network we can progress within the game and broaden our horizons within the business of sport. It’s also about breaking down barriers in sport; sharing ideas, tactics and knowledge is one of the best ways to do this. It’s part of our strategy to generate opportunities for young talent to flourish within our Academy of Cricket; creating the Global Club Cricket Network will play a big part in this. The partnership will also give us greater scope to strengthen our diversity strategy by creating a platform for players around the world to learn from each other.”

“It’s a great opportunity to link up with a UK-based club to share best practice and commercial knowledge,” says David Brooke, Brand and Sponsorship Manager at the Cobras. “We also share similar values around embracing diversity and coaching younger talent to become world-class cricket professionals, so it’s a really good fit for us.”
