Vuma to Sponsor Proteas for T20 World Cup

Fibre infrastructure provider Vuma has picked up the headline sponsorship of the national men’s cricket team for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup.

The tournament is underway in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

The national team will be referred to as the Vuma Proteas for the T20 World Cup.

“Sport has a positive ripple effect on communities, particularly in South Africa,” says Dietlof Mare, CEO of Vuma. “It gives us immense pride to put our support behind the Vuma Proteas and play a role in helping to advance one of South Africa’s most loved sports. Cricket brings people together and allows them to connect based on a shared love for the game. This impacted our decision to come on board as a sponsor, as this aligns well with our values of making connections that live beyond fibre.”

“This sponsorship ensures South Africa maintains its position as a world-renowned cricketing giant, not to mention keeping the cricket alive here in South Africa too,” says Cricket South Africa’s Director of Cricket, Graeme Smith.

“This sponsorship will add the necessary confidence in the team, knowing that they are supported by a brand of such prestige,” says Temba Bavuma, captain of the Proteas. “I would like to thank Vuma for getting behind CSA and the team at a crucial moment before the official kick-off of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021.”

South Africa open their ICC T20 World Cup campaign against Australia on 23 October.
