ST JOHN’S, Antigua The West Indies Cricket Board recently announced leading Spanish sports brand Joma as the Official West Indies Team kit supplier for the Men’s and Women’s cricket teams.

The West Indies Men’s Team will debut the kit in their opening match of Cricket World Cup on February 16 against Ireland.

“What is particularly significant about this partnership with Joma is that they are not a traditional cricket kit supplier, yet they recognise the value of West Indies cricket on the world stage and have chosen to partner with the WICB as their launch pad into the cricket world,” WICB Commercial Manager Nelecia Yeates said.

“We warmly welcome Joma onboard. It is a best case scenario that the debut of the Joma kit will be during cricket’s marquee global event – the Cricket World Cup and we look forward to this partnership being a mutually successful one both for West Indies Cricket and Joma,” Yeates added.

Joma representative, Luigui Mantovani of Joma Latin America commented: “WICB sponsorship is a significant development for Joma for different reasons most especially because it involves commercial entry into the cricket market. Joma has great confidence in WICB as a partner and is pleased to come onboard as the Official West Indies Kit Supplier with a team which has such great visibility in cricket.”

Joma Sport is the leading Spanish sports brand and one of the top ten sports brands in the world. It was inaugurated in 1965 and has offices in Mexico and across Latin America, USA, Europe and Asia and is currently present in over 70 countries throughout the world.

Joma is the official kit supplier of the Honduras Football Team which recently competed in the FIFA World Cup.

The debut Joma West Indies kit design stays true to the globally recognised maroon which is accented with gold indicative of the sunshine, the energy and the effervescence of life that is indicative of the Caribbean and West Indies cricket.

Joma’s contract as official kit supplier will run until 2017.
