Ben Parker, at home commercial director at Britvic, comments: “We are delighted to name Robinsons Ready to Drink as the official soft drinks partner of The Hundred, a great way for the brand to continue encouraging families to get active this summer. The tournament, which successfully launched in 2021, attracted new spectators to cricket, and this year is expected to be even bigger. Taking place from 3rd August to 3rd September, games will be broadcast on Sky and BBC, and audiences are expected to reach over 16 million. It’s a brilliant opportunity for us to raise awareness of our Robinsons Ready to Drink range among new and existing shoppers, driving footfall and sales for retailers.”
