USA Cricket is delighted to announce Newbery as its latest commercial partner with a new, 2 year partnership with Newbery Sports who will become the Official Equipment and Cricket Balls Supplier to USA Cricket. One of the world’s most recognizable cricketing brands will join with USA Cricket in bringing their world-class balls at heavily discounted rates for USA Cricket members and also provide cricket equipment to USA’s National Men’s and Women’s Cricket Teams, both senior and youth.
The Sports Manufacturing company who are recognized as a world leader in cricket ball manufacturing and who develop and create some of the finest cricketing equipment and playing gear in the world are excited to enter the American market for the first time with an initial two year commitment to partner with USA Cricket. The wide range of cricket equipment, in terms of both pricing and quality, will help Newbery to cater to the entire spectrum of the domestic and grass-roots game in the USA.
The Team USA Men’s and Women’s National Teams both successfully qualified from the T20 World Cup Regional Qualifiers in 2021 as champions of the Americas regions and will have a chance to qualify for a World Cup for the first time in 2022.
Andy Miller, CEO of Newbery, said, “We are proud to partner with USA Cricket at this hugely promising time for the development of cricket in the United States. Newbery is an historic brand that is building on a long-standing heritage, producing quality cricket bats and products for over 100 years.
We are constantly looking to innovate and evolve as we continue to support cricketers of all abilities with the highest quality equipment. We see huge potential for cricket in the USA and will be supporting USA Cricket in the development of grassroots cricket and also the pursuit of excellence and success via the USA National Team programmes through the provision of our globally-renowned equipment.
We look forward to playing a part in the future growth of cricket in the USA.”
USA Cricket Chairman, Paraag Marathe, said, “Our partnership agreement today with Newbery is a fantastic development that sees one of cricket’s best known brands joining with us at USA Cricket here in one of the fastest growing cricketing markets in the world. After a ground-breaking year in 2021 for the game in America, the future looks very bright at all levels of the game. We are most pleased with this partnership because it supports the clubs, leagues and academies across the country who are members of USA Cricket, as well as our National Team programs. We welcome Newbery to the USA Cricket family and we are looking forward to a longstanding relationship that will continue to help us grow the game and build the platform for American cricket.”
The partnership between the two parties starts immediately and will run until the end of 2023, with an option for extension at that point.
