OCS Signs for Ten More Years With The Brit Oval
International facilities services group OCS has agreed a ten year extension to its deal with the Brit Oval for continued sponsorship of its flagship stand, and guaranteed naming rights to the OCS Stand at the historic ground until 2019.
Chris Cracknell, chief executive of OCS said, “Not only does this sponsorship give our brand key exposure to audiences across the world, the partnership strongly underpins our business objective of putting something back into the communities in which we work and supporting young people through sport.”
The company hosts the annual OCS Young Sportsperson of the Year awards at the Brit Oval, a ceremony which honours excellence in sport amongst young girls and boys from across the country. Since the awards began in 1998, over £200,000 has been granted to over 100 deserving young sports stars, including 2009 Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle, Beijing Olympic Gold Medalist gymnast Louis Smith and table tennis champion Paul Drinkhall, winner of the 2009 Under-21 China Open.
In addition to the stand sponsorship, OCS also supports Surrey Cricket and the local community by sponsoring the final of a county wide ‘Chance to Shine’ competition, a cricket project run by Surrey Cricket and associated clubs that includes around 70 Primary schools across the county.
Paul Sheldon, chief executive of Surrey County Cricket Club added: “For OCS to sign up for another ten years of support is really excellent news for the club. It will enable us to plan for the future both on and off the field and I look forward to continuing to develop our very successful partnership.”
