Bloemfontein - Chevrolet and the Knights will take the crease for the last time when the Knights take on the Titans in their last Sunfoil Series match on March 26 at SuperSport Park in Centurion.

It will the end of a six-year partnership between Chevrolet and the Knights.

Johan van Heerden, CEO of the Knights, expressed his appreciation to Chevrolet for the values and the strong foundation they have brought to the partnership. “Chevrolet’s support has been absolutely fantastic. They have become part of the family, not only on the professional side but also at the amateur level. I would like to thank Chevrolet for the huge impact they have made.”

Coach Sarel Cilliers reiterated these sentiments. “Chevrolet have been an integral part of the Knights over the last six years and the brand has certainly grown into an identity within the central region. Chevrolet has supported the team and the players as individuals at different levels and has become active part of our daily operations. Our pre-seasons have been enlightened with test drives, 4x4 outings and team building exercises that enhanced our team environment. Many of us get to experience activities that fall way outside our daily routine like going up the Sani pass or drifting in a parking lot! Chevrolet is a dream sponsor for any sporting team and we are grateful for their support.”

The Knights’ search for a new title sponsor has already begin, but the team’s success in the RAM SLAM T20 competition helped increase their global brand awareness. They beat the Highveld Lions by eight wickets in an eliminator match resulting that the Knights will now play in the Champions League Twenty20 for the first time since the competition’s inaugural in 2009.
