On 21 January 2018, the Saint-Gobain Strikers beat the Aces African Fighters to win the cup final match of the Dar-Es-Salaam Regional Cricket Committee (DRCC) T20 tournament.
Saint-Gobain has sponsored the Saint-Gobain Strikers since 2013, one of the 32 teams that participates in the major Dar-Es-Salaam leagues in Tanzania. The Group provides the team with equipment (bats, helmets, pads, balls) and pays the entry fees so that every player can take part in all the games of the season.
Through this sponsorship, Saint-Gobain shows its commitment to developing local Tanzanian communities. It is also a way to build the Group’s brand through local press and TV coverage, and to foster close relationships with major contractors, some of whom also participate in the cricket tournament.
