Fingent proudly announced to be the Title Sponsor of the team, giving it the name, The Fingent Pathbreakers!

The tour was organized by a player-management company, Play True, as part of their girls-empowerment initiative, “For HER”; in association with Dubai-based G Force Cricket Academy. The 10-days long cricket tournament, which commenced on December 18th, saw the team Fingent Pathbreakers play a series of six friendly matches in Ajman, Sharjah, and Dubai against various cricket clubs and academies in the UAE. 

The team was flagged off by Stuart Keeler, Assistant Commissioner of Police (Control Room), at the Press Club in Trivandrum on December 18, 2020. The team’s playing jersey was also unveiled by Dileep Jacob, Sr. Vice President – Global Operations Fingent, and other co-sponsors, during the press meet.

Here’s a peek into the press meet conducted at the Press Club, Trivandrum on December 18, 2020.
