Thank you Mitchum for this opportunity to allow Women in the sport of cricket to showcase your brand with pride and passion.”

The energy they bring to the overall fan experience on any given match day at Newlands has become legendary and I’m extremely thankful to them for what we are trying to achieve with Western Province and the Cape Cobras. It was such a natural progression for the brand to partner with our WP Women’s senior side, it is testament to the professionalism that Coach Claire Terblanche has instilled in her team and the quality of talent coming through Western Province, all the way to national and international level.”
