Fujitsu Teams Up With Cricket Wellington

Cricket Wellington and Fujitsu Heat Pumps are pleased to announce a new commercial partnership.

Fujitsu, a major sponsor of the “Fill the Basin” earthquake relief match in March 2011, has now joined with Cricket Wellington in a relationship which will assist the delivery of cricket throughout the region.

Commenting on the partnership Cricket Wellington Chief Executive Gavin Larsen said “We’re delighted that such a high-quality partner as Fujitsu wishes to support local cricket, and we’re looking forward to a long and successful relationship with them. Fujitsu has a proud track record of supporting community initiatives and their love of cricket makes them a perfect fit with our plans to strengthen the local game from grassroots up to Firebirds and Blaze success”.

The partnership has been launched with a promotion offering customers the chance to meet, and perhaps even bat against, Muttiah Muralitharan, the world’s leading test wicket taker and one of the greats of the game. “Even though we’re currently in winter, there is a buzz around town about the arrival of Murali this summer” said Larsen. “Fujitsu shares in that buzz and we’re thrilled that they want to be an integral part of what’s going to be a great summer of cricket”.

Through the promotion launched today customers will go in to a series of prize draws and offers, and in supporting the promotion local consumers will be assisting cricket programmes and the delivery of cricket throughout the region.

“This is a great opportunity for local cricket fans who are in the market for heating options to both purchase a great product and also support the development of cricket in Wellington”, said Larsen.
