MANCHESTER was the venue for this week’s stop on Nissan’s all-electric 100-day tour to mark its sponsorship of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, backed by the brand’s dealer network.
This week, the Trophy was on display in the Manchester city centre Arndale Centre on March 27.
The LEAF will be transporting the Trophy all over England and Wales at multiple stops across the country including community centres, schools and even iconic British landmarks such as Stonehenge. Find out more here.
During the Tour, cricket fans will be given the opportunity to win tickets to seven of the tournament’s key fixtures, with five pairs of tickets being given away at each of the key venues.
“The ICC Cricket World Cup is the ideal partner for the 100% electric Nissan LEAF,” said Nic Verneuil, Nissan MotorsGB marketing director. “The LEAF appeals to free-thinking customers drawn to Nissan Intelligent Mobility and its promise of intelligent power, drive and integration.
“We are thrilled to be taking the World Cup on a national Trophy Tour, visiting shopping centres in the vicinity of major cricket venues hosting games this summer. It will also be visiting key Nissan facilities including where the LEAF is engineered (Nissan Technical Centre Europe, Bedfordshire) and manufactured (Nissan Manufacturing UK, Sunderland), to bring the excitement of cricket closer to our experts in innovation.”
Other Nissan dealers supporting the campaign include Wellington Motors of Taunton, Wessex Garages of Bristol, West Way Birmingham, West Way Manchester, Lookers Leeds and Sandicliffe of Nottingham
After Manchester, the next stop will be the Trinity Shopping Centre in Leeds on April 12.
