Waterford Crystal set to sparkle at Turkish Airlines Irish Cricket Awards

With the 2020 Turkish Airlines Irish Cricket Awards set to be held on Friday evening, a new event partner with a global link to cricket has been unveiled that will be sure to add sparkle to proceedings.

Irish crystal maker, Waterford, has crafted the awards for the event’s category winners, heralding a new association between Waterford and Cricket Ireland.

David McCoy, from Waterford Crystal, said: 

“Waterford has a proud history of creating iconic crystalware since 1783, and we are pleased to become involved with Irish cricket’s night of nights. The Irish Cricket Awards recognise the best of Irish talent on the world stage, and as Ireland’s leading crystal manufacturer, we are delighted to be associated with cricket here in Ireland.” 

“We congratulate all winners on the night and look forward to enjoying a night of celebrating Ireland’s role in the world’s second biggest sport.” 

Warren Deutrom, Chief Executive of Cricket Ireland, said: 

“The last few years have seen a steep growth in awareness and involvement in Irish cricket – not just on the field, but also with our family of sponsors and business partners. Support from our partners drives investment at all levels of our sport and has been one of the reasons we continue to punch above our weight on the world stage.”

“We welcome Waterford’s support for Irish cricket, and hope this may be the start of a long-term association. A partnership with such an iconic Irish brand puts the best of Ireland in the global spotlight, and the winners of these stunning crystal awards are sure to be the envy of the Irish cricket family.”

The 2020 Turkish Airlines Irish Cricket Awards will be held in Dublin on Friday 28 February 2020.
