The Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) has secured Weber Barbecues as its naming rights sponsor for a further season.
After initially joining forces with the league prior to last season for a two-year partnership, the renewal will see the BBQ company continue its connection with the women’s T20 league until the end of WBBL|09.
“The League is delighted to be extending its naming rights partnership with Weber Barbecues into a third season,” said Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s General Manager of Big Bash Leagues.
“Both Weber and the WBBL are world class in their field, but both also share strong links to the essence of summer: fun, family, food and cricket. We look forward to working with Weber over the next two seasons to strengthen these ties and deliver a brilliant experience to our fans nationwide.”
The pair also outlined that reigning WBBL|07 champions, Perth Scorchers, recently visited the Weber store in Cannington on a team bonding excursion.
Michael McDonald, Weber Barbecues Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, added: “Barbecuing and cricket are the perfect recipe for the Australian summer and our partnership is enthusiastically supported by our consumers, our retail partners and our team.
“We believe that getting involved in barbecuing, like playing cricket, should be inclusive of everyone and we are very proud to be able to support the growth of women’s cricket in Australia.”
