The Gauteng Cricket Board (GCB) has announced that they have changed their name to the Central Gauteng Lions.
The new name represents the overarching cricket body for the West Rand, Sedibeng and the City of Johannesburg, while ‘Lions’ and the corresponding lion’s head logo, connects the brand to their franchise team – the Highveld Lions.
Jack Madiseng, Central Gauteng Lions president, said: ‘The Central Gauteng Lions awards are always a highlight at the end of a season; we are proud of the achievements of our players and all the administration involved in the success of our teams.’
Greg Fredericks, Central Gauteng Lions chief executive officer, also shared his thoughts: ‘It’s been a great evening – one that not only recognises individual successes but the results of the hard work by everyone involved in the progress of our organisation. It was also incredibly satisfying to witness the positive buzz around our new, unified look – a sign of great things to come.’
The GCB have also developed a new logo for the franchise.
