All-conquering Titans join forces with Emperors Palace gladiators
Thursday, November 24, 2016
The award-winning hospitality and gaming resort, Emperors Palace, is proud to announce that it has entered into a two year sponsorship deal with the Centurion based, Titans cricket team – as Official Accommodation and Entertainment partner to the Titans. As current T20 Slam and Sunfoil Series champions, the team has produced outstanding players who are also representing the Proteas in many formats of the game. These players include Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers, Chris Morris, Farhaan Behardien, Quinton de Kock, Dean Elgar and Tabraiz Shamsi.
“Emperors Palace is delighted to partner with this fantastic cricket franchise. South Africans and Pretoria residents are crazy about sport in general, and these cricket fans are especially passionate and loyal to their teams. We enjoy a lot of support from the Tshwane area and think this is a natural tie-up. As the home of boxing and proud hospitality and entertainment partner of the SA Open golf event, the Titans partnership is fantastic – and from one winning team to another, Peermont, the owners of Emperors Palace, are looking forward to this journey – and have some fun activations planned”, comments Mark Jakins, Peermont Group Marketing and Regional Operations Executive.
The Titans are considered one of the premier domestic cricket teams in the country. “We are pleased to have the Peermont Group on board and we look forward to building the partnership”, said Jacques Faul, Chief Executive Officer of Multiply Titans.
The resort’s ideal location next to the O.R. Tambo International Airport, with complimentary shuttle services, takes the hassle out of travelling for out of town fans who can enjoy comfortable accommodation in any of its four unique hotels - from 5, to 4, to 3 star, while taking in a show, dining out or having a good time with friends and family. And for those wishing to see their team live in action, it is a comfortable and short driving distance to Centurion’s SuperSport Park and Benoni’s Willowmoore Park, the two home venues of the Titans.
