Over the weekend of 28th February to March 02nd Cricket Deal Direct attended the first Cricket Espana conference at the La Manga resort. This was also the official launch of the partnership based around the international SM brand of cricket gear. Many of the Spanish clubs attending the conference saw first hand the quality of the gear, which can now be purchased direct from the Cricket Espana on -line cricket shop. The partnership with Cricket Espana is expected to grow rapidly as the demand for cricket in Spain also grows, particularly now that the Spanish government has officially recognised the game. We are very excited about this opportunity and look forward to working with the Spanish team in the coming months.
