Every Ball. Every Test.
Engrained in Australian culture, The Ashes is a Test cricket match played between England and Australia. The series traditionally consists of five Tests, hosted in turn by England and Australia at least once every two years.
With cricket rooted in every regional and metro community across the country, Merlin is proud to be supporting one of the biggest codes on the sporting landscape – and it doesn’t get much bigger than The Ashes!
Grant Emanuel, Chamberlain Group’s VP & Managing Director, said: “We are honoured to be part of the 2023 Ashes series as an advertising partner.
“Aussie families have been playing backyard cricket for generations. You’ll never forget that feeling of bowling your sibling out, or hitting a six (over the neighbour’s fence!). At Merlin, we’re proud to support our national sport that brings all of us together.”
Supporting broader communities
As a family-focused business, Merlin cares deeply about supporting families, local businesses and the broader community and is committed to supporting Aussie sport.
Along with our advertising support of The Ashes, Merlin is also a Major Partner of the NSW Swifts and GIANTS Netball teams, and the Official Home Access Partner of the Repco Supercars Championship.
Throughout The Ashes series, the Merlin brand will be prominently featured on the field and during live coverage. So, keep an eye out for the recognisable Merlin logo on Channel 9!
This year’s Men’s Ashes series is hosted in England from June 16 through to July 31.
From all of us at Merlin – go team Australia! Let’s bring home The Ashes.
