Hampshire Hawks will have a new name on the front of their shirts when they begin their T20 Vitality Blast title defence later this month after Southampton-based Connect It Utility Services agreed on a one-year partnership with the county’s white-ball squads.
The Hawks begin their T20 season with a game against Somerset on 24th May before launching their home campaign at The Ageas Bowl two days later against Middlesex.
The defending champions are among the early favourites for this season’s T20 Vitality Blast and head into the competition with a star-studded line-up, including James Vince, Chris Wood, Ben McDermott, and Nathan Ellis.
Based in Hamilton Business Village in Southampton, Connect It Utility Services has built up an unrivalled reputation within the services industry after more than two decades of providing technologically advanced, dedicated, and comprehensive services to the entire utility market.
The partnership, which will also see Connect It Utility Services appear on Hampshire’s One Day Cup shirts, represents a partnership between two genuine Hampshire success stories – the all-conquering T20 team and an acclaimed and well-established business.
As a result of the partnership, Hampshire supporters are in with the chance to win four tickets to ‘Champions Day’ on Friday 26th May which will see the Southern Vipers take on Western Storm at The Ageas Bowl as part of a double-header with the Hampshire Hawks who host Middlesex.
The competition will be run across The Ageas Bowl’s Official website and also offers the winner the chance to take home a signed T20 shirt from the Hawks squad.
Tom James, Head of Sales and Commercial Partnerships at The Ageas Bowl, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with Connect It Utility Services on what is an exciting partnership.
“It is always special to be partnering with a successful local business and Connect It Utility Services has an impressive pedigree and shares many of the same values as Hampshire Cricket.”
Peter Leech, Managing Director at Connect It Utility Services, added: “We are extremely proud to be partnering with Hampshire Cricket and Hampshire Hawks.
“The appetite to win, excel and push new boundaries are aligned with our core values at Connect It Utility Services.
“After a prosperous 2022, we are excited to see what the reigning T20 champions can achieve this season.”
