Hyundai have delivered 70 vehicles ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy, which begins tomorrow in Cardiff.
An official partner of the International Cricket Council (ICC), Hyundai distributed a range of models to be used during the prestigious tournament, taking place across England and Wales.
The vehicles, including the i30, i40, Veloster and i800 (H-1), will be fully branded and used by teams, staff, VIPs and match officials.
Tony Whitehorn, CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, said: “We are delighted to support the ICC Champions Trophy tournament here in England and Wales over the next couple of weeks.
“This exciting tournament provides us with a fantastic opportunity to showcase our product range to a broad audience of cricket fans.”
Hyundai’s ICC sponsorship started in 2011, when the Cricket World Cup was hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
The Korean manufacturer are set to support the ICC World T20 2014 in Bangladesh, as well as the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 in Australia and New Zealand.
Campbell Jamieson, General Manager (Commercial) of the ICC said: “The ICC values the partnership with Hyundai Motor, which grows stronger with each event.
“The company’s provision of transportation for teams, officials, VIPs and the working staff speaks volumes for its dedicated commitment to the partnership.”
The ICC Champions Trophy 2013 one-day series runs from June 6 to 23, during which the world’s top eight one-day sides compete for the prestigious title.
Title holders India will be seeking to maintain their status, competing against teams from England, South Africa, The West Indies, Pakistan, Australia and New Zealand.
Hyundai will announce the results of the tournament and match schedule via their giant advertising LED screen at Piccadilly Circus from June 5 to 23.
