Should we talk about Vodafones' sponsership of the Australian Cricket team?

It is rather shamful that they dumped us in favour of the Aussies.

True.

 

Vodafone sponsor Mclaren Mercedes, a British racing team and they also sponsor Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes of Australian V8 Supercars.

 

Besides, we're beating the Aussies.:smileytongue:

Hey Ollsbols,

I don't know the ins and outs of it, but I expect it'll be something to do with them previously being sponsored by Three. We've since merged with Three (only in Australia) so maybe there was still a period of the agreement to complete.

Still, as Mick says, at least we're winning, and here's to another four days of Aussie rain!

Took us 24 years to do it though. And in that time the women's team won quite a few times. So all we have to do now is get the Women's England Football Team to teach us how to play that game and we've cracked it.

When we won the ashes Vodafone were sponsoring the England team, I remember the Voda logo all over Lords and the players shirts. The sponsorship was due to run out though. It's like the Derby, the sponsorship only runs for a limited time/agreement.
