Brooks Macdonald to sponsor Middlesex cricket club

Brooks Macdonald has signed a three year sponsorship deal with Middlesex County Cricket Club.

Middlesex cricket club was previously sponsored by Ignis Asset Managent in a three year deal which expired at the end of last year.

Brooks Macdonald brand will be emblazoned across the front, back and collars of the Middlesex CCC players’ shirts in all three forms of the game, as well as at the Home of Cricket, with an in-ground advertising presence at Lord’s.

Chief Executive of Middlesex County Cricket Club, Vinny Codrington, said “We are absolutely delighted to have signed an agreement with Brooks Macdonald which will see our organisations working closely together over the coming years.

“With the current economic conditions we find ourselves in, we are thrilled that Brooks Macdonald has committed their future to Middlesex County Cricket Club for the next three years, as the revenue from this sponsorship agreement ensures that we as a club can move forward and pursue our vision and goals with confidence and financial stability both on and off the field.

“We would like to formally welcome Brooks Macdonald into the Middlesex family and are looking forward to working with them over the years ahead to forge an enjoyable and successful partnership.”

On announcing their alliance with Middlesex CCC, Brooks Macdonald Chief Executive, Chris Macdonald said “Following the significant growth of the Group over recent years, we have been exploring options to further increase the visibility of the Brooks Macdonald brand amongst our target client base.

“As a firm, we are passionate about wealth management and sport and having considered a number of opportunities, the sponsorship of Middlesex was by far the strongest fit as well as a logical expansion of our long running sponsorship of schools’ sports teams and other amateur sports clubs, which number in excess of 50 since our launch. These will continue.

“The three year deal is an important milestone in our marketing activity and we are very excited to be working closely with the Middlesex team.”

The incident happened while Kohli was fielding near the boundary in front of a group of Australian fans.

He is now in danger of being charged with a level-two offence for breaching the ICC’s code of conduct.

However, Kohli later defended his action on twitter saying,” I agree cricketers dont have to retaliate. what when the crowd says the worst things about your mother and sister. the worst ive heard”.

Kohli found some support from England cricketer Kevin Pietersen who tweeted, “ha ha ha ha ha!!! Welcome to Australia buddy!!”

“that’s the way it is mate.. Beat them & they start abusing their own!! #fickle.”

If Kohli is found guilty, he could face a minimum penalty of having half of his match fee docked or a maximum penalty of a one-Test suspension.
