They join 188Foundation, Barclays Wealth, Boston Group, Britannia International, Friends Provident International, the Gubay Foundation, Manx Telecom, the Sefton Group and Tower Insurance as the main partner sponsors who will play a vital role in making the 2011 Games a global success.
Geoff Karran, Chairman and Games Director said “We are thrilled that Colas has come on board as the 10th partner sponsor for CYG2011. The Organising Committee looks forward to working with them as well as continuing to work alongside our other partner sponsors to make the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Games an outstanding event. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Isle of Man Government, who is our main sponsor, for their continued support and our Sponsorship Committee who have worked so hard in securing our partner sponsors.”
As well as providing financial investment to CYG2011, the 10 partner sponsors will also bring resources, enthusiasm and expertise to ensure the 2011 Games are a showcase of excellence for our dynamic and globally focused Island whilst benefiting from a unique opportunity to promote to 71 nations of the Commonwealth.
