Sponsors and Grants
Our GOLD sponsor is Birkenhead New World.
As well as generously helping the club financially, they have naming rights to the men’s Premier Two Day side.
Please make them your first port of call for your groceries – the store has recently been revamped and wine including craft beer and of course all the regular grocery items. There’s good coffee as you go into the store – Gravity – and nice bunches of flowers to keep your beloved onside after you’ve been away all day at cricket. 🙂
We also have Cricket Express on board as a sponsor.
It goes without saying we’d like club members to use Cricket Express for their cricket purchases and if you mention BCCC you will get a 10% discount. They have a store in Mt Eden and in Albany. Here’s their website.
Cricket Express is also kindly sponsoring one youth player and one premier player this season to the tune of 50% of their kit. The players are being selected by the club and Cricket Express. It means if they buy a bat, gloves and helmet for example, they will only have to pay 50% of the cost.
Cricket Express has some great gear in store in pre-season specials valid while stocks last or til November 14. Click here for more details.
Birkenhead City would like to say a massive thank you to our new club sign sponsor Speedy Signs Takapuna. Speedy has generously donated the stunning Birkenhead City Cricket Club sign that now adorns our clubhouse. Jeff Sawell at Speedy is a long-time cricket fan and is pleased to be able to give back to the game he loves through their partnership with the club. Given the many demands, we have on club funds a sign for the clubhouse was not our highest priority, so Speedy’s generosity has given us a chance to celebrate our history and identity with a sign we can all be proud of. If your business needs signage then give Jeff and the superb team at Speedy Signs Takapuna a call.
A huge thank you to Barfoot & Thompson for coming on board as our Premier Men’s One Day Kit and naming rights sponsor. We were also in desperate need of a new BBQ and Steve Bristow jumped in to help out. Here’s to many hours of happy cooking.
A huge thank you to the Local Board at the Auckland Council for the grant that has allowed us to acquire a new mobile cricket net.
With the growth we are seeing throughout the club, this net will create more practice opportunities and allow us to better facilitate training sessions.
Birkenhead City Cricket Club has other sponsorship openings right now. We’d love the chance to promote some other local businesses.
You could sponsor the club, or just a team, or a grade – Superstar cricket (Years 1-4), Junior Cricket (years 5-8), Youth Cricket, Senior Cricket or Premier Cricket. Our girls’ teams is also keen to wear a sponsor’s logo and update their gear. This is a champion side – be part of it!
From as little as $500 right up to the big dollar you can contribute to this growing club, established in 1898. Please email club manager Juan le Maitre on firstname.lastname@example.org
