HSBC Bermuda returns as lead sponsor of Cup Match Classic
HSBC Bermuda has returned as the lead sponsor of this month’s Cup Match Classic.
Neil Paynter, president of St George’s Cricket Club, which is hosting the event, said: “We have had a long and successful history with HSBC and Cup Match and are excited to be able to partner again with the bank this year. The club are particularly grateful for all that the bank’s sponsorship enables us to be able to provide to the local community.
“It is a fantastic event and on behalf of the club I extend my sincere thanks to HSBC for once again sponsoring us as we strive to bring the cup back ‘home’ to St George’s.”
Steve Banner, chief executive officer of HSBC Bermuda, said: “This will be HSBC’s 14th year as the lead sponsor of this exciting competition. At HSBC we are delighted to be able to once again support the respective efforts of the St George’s and Somerset cricket clubs.
“At HSBC we are proud to support the Island’s largest sporting event and we look forward to celebrating its return with colleagues, customers and the whole community.”
Tanya Bule, head of wealth and personal banking, said: “In the lead up to the two day event our employees will be busy with a number of community focused, Cup Match related activities.
“Once again Bermuda residents will see the return of the Cup Match annual motorcade which will include HSBC employees travelling the length of the Island starting from both St George’s and Somerset and providing giveaways to the public along the journey. The free gifts will include the ever popular HSBC car flags, in team colours.”
The motorcade will take place from 12 noon to 2pm on Monday, July 26 from Somerset to Hamilton, and the following day, also at 12 noon – 2pm from St George’s to Hamilton. The Harbourview branch will host more giveaways on Wednesday, July 28.
