Cricket ACT today announced a significant partnership with Abode Hotels to be the naming rights sponsor for the ACT Meteors for the next three years.

CACT CEO Cameron French said: “Cricket ACT is delighted to form a partnership with Canberra’s largest hotel brand, Abode Hotels, and reveal the newly named Abode Hotels ACT Meteors for the next three years. We are proud to have a local Canberra business become the Meteors’ most valuable partner in the team’s history.

“The partnership with Abode Hotels will enable Cricket ACT to continue to provide support for the Meteors to help grow the team’s profile and enhance player development, aligning with one of the key priorities of increasing the participation of women and girls in cricket.

“I consider this partnership to be a fantastic step towards professionalising the game for women. It’s a very exciting journey for us to be embarking on, and we can’t wait to see what this exciting partnership produces.”

Mr French said the players’ wellbeing was paramount and the partnership would also help minimise the impact of travel on interstate squad members through Abode Hotels providing the team and officials a ‘home away from home’ whenever they were in town.

GEOCON General Manager Hotels Rien Donkin said partnering with the ACT Meteors was a perfect fit with the values and mission of the Abode Hotels brand in building communities and lifestyle with a family focus.

“We had no hesitation when we were presented with an opportunity to support an organisation that has aspirations of growth, that gives back to the community and is providing great role models for junior cricketers and sport in the Canberra region. We look forward to supporting the success of this group of extraordinary athletes and their dedicated staff.

“We are also proud to be at the frontier of supporting women’s cricket and we will work hard to promote the team and the game,” Mr Donkin said.

“That starts today with the release of a special Abode Hotels ACT Meteors accommodation package on the weekend of the Meteors day/night match at Manuka Oval on 30 October.”
