KFC to sponsor Mini Cricket Cricket South Africa on Tuesday announced that global brand KFC is its new sponsor for mini cricket, the entry point to the game. CSA CEO Gerald Majola said it was a major boost for the further growth of the game to have an international brand such as KFC on board at a critical level of the game. Managing director for KFC in Africa, Keith Warren, said his company was excited to partner Cricket South Africa on this programme. "As a supplier to CSA and the Proteas over the last two years, we have come to develop a great admiration for the quality of the people involved in the game and the professional approach with which they tackle their roles. "Mini Cricket is no exception and while we remain deeply respectful of the work done to date, we cannot wait to develop a plan together with CSA to take this property to its full potential." Mini cricket is similar to Kwik cricket, as it is the first step/ introduction to the game. I must be honest it was expected as the old sponsor (Bakers) were terminated mutually. KFC has had a supplier agreement with CSA and have sponsored broadcasts for T20 cricket in South Africa (not the domestic competition). Great to see that businesses are getting involved with cricket in a bigger capacity.
