The National, Monday October 28th, 2013
CRICKET PNG has secured a major sponsorship deal with Gabba Sports Products that will see the Brisbane-based company provide first class cricket equipment for the Papua New Guinea national teams.
Gabba Sporting Products was established in 1978, and continues to be a family-owned and operated company.
Over this period of operation, primarily with cricket equipment, they have developed their own brand ‘GABBA’, which is a registered trade name.
Gabba Sporting Products produces first class, handcrafted English willow cricket bats at their cricket bat factory in Brisbane.
They have developed the unique ‘demountable sports net system’ which they manufacture and hold the patent for in Australia.
Gabba sporting products was the first company to introduce synthetic grass into the country.
They now distribute and install all-throughout Australia, so much so that it is now known colloquially throughout the industry as ‘Gabba Grass.’
Gabba Sporting Products have been a proud sponsor of Queensland Cricket for over 20 years.
The company’s aim is to provide quality products at a competitive price whilst still offering service and advice to all customers.
They want the game that we all love to be affordable and able to be enjoyed by all players at any level.
Gabba Sporting Products national marketing manager, Dustin Gaskell was delighted to team up with Cricket PNG
“As Australia’s leading cricket equipment company, Gabba Sporting Products is excited to team up with a rising cricket nation in PNG,” Gaskell said.
“We are pleased to sponsor and supply Cricket PNG’s national teams with quality cricket equipment to help them perform on the international stage in several exciting tournaments coming up.”
Cricket PNG general manager Greg Campbell was also excited about the new partnership.
“As you know our Barramundis are seeking to qualify for the T20 World Cup as well as the 50-over World Cup and having the right equipment for our players is very important. With Gabba Sporting Products coming on board, our players will be able to use first class equipment,” Campbell said.
