Gloucestershire lands shirt sponsor deal with fantasy sports firm

English County Championship cricket club Gloucestershire has signed a shirt sponsorship deal with fantasy cricket platform StarPick.

The three-year agreement covers Gloucestershire’s Twenty20 team and begins with the match against Somerset today (Friday).

StarPick will also benefit from extensive brand exposure at Gloucestershire’s Brightside Ground stadium in Bristol.

StarPick launched earlier this year in India, where it has amassed over 650,000 users. It is now available in the UK, offering the first fully comprehensive fantasy cricket platform in the country.

StarPick has also signed brand ambassador deals with England international Eoin Morgan, India internationals Dinesh Karthik and Rohit Sharma, and ex-Gloucestershire player and South African international Jonty Rhodes.
