November 26, 2014, 2:17 pm

TACK’s marketing and creative team has been working really hard for the last couple of months to put together a sporting event, the likes of which has never been seen before in Kuwait. Mental preparation and idea generation had started a year ago but the last few months have really seen the preparations go into over-drive mode that has set the entire Kuwait, cricket lovers in particular, buzzing in anticipation. From putting together a remarkable lineup of 7 A-List international cricketers to ensuring bigger and better rewards for players (Mitsubishi Attarage being one of them) the meticulous planning, detailing and immense hard work put in by TACK is there for all to see.

TACK has not only partnered for the second time with Huawei for the upcoming 4Nations T20 Festival by giving them the naming rights, but has managed to retain almost all the sponsors and partners from last year’s event which speaks volume about the trust and admiration TACK enjoys among its partners. Consequently, all the partners like Gulf Bank, Western Union, Mada Telecom, McDonald’s, Mais Alghanim and Al-Bahar have come forward with even stronger support as compared to last year. Additionally, keeping their mantra of growth alive, TACK has gone ahead and launched new relationships this year with the likes of Al Mulla Group, Crowne Plaza and to produce and execute this year’s event on such a massive scale. 

Final squads of the four teams competing on Friday i.e. TACK-Kuwait XI, TACK-Pakistan XI, TACK-India XI and TACK-Srilanka XI were finalized this week including the support staff of coaches, managers and liaison officers. Team jerseys will be officially launched at a glittering press conference to be held at the plush Al-Andulus ballroom in Crowne Plaza, TACK’s Hospitality partner for the event and also hosting all the international cricketers. Additionally, all 7 international super stars will be officially introduced to the media, sponsors and partners.

Teams Association of Cricket in Kuwait, fondly referred to as TACK-MG now, has in fact come a long way since its inception in 2009 with 7 desert grounds in Sulaibikhat and Hateen to hosting a truly international sporting event in Kuwait which will not only enchant the cricket lovers of Kuwait but will also serve as a fantastic platform for Kuwait to announce to the world that it is ready for international cricket. 

Fasten your seatbelts, pull up your socks and get ready for an entertaining roller coaster ride on 28th of November at TACK-Entertainment city cricket ground – Doha, where there will be 4 back to back thrilling t20 matches, plenty of prizes and surprises, bumper draws and rocking music for families and children to cherish for a long time to come.
