Sure expands Ashes sponsorship ahead of hot summer
Sure Men, the Unilever-owned deodorant brand, has expanded its sponsorship of cricket and will feature heavily throughout this summer's Ashes series between England and Australia.

Now the company has secured significant branding, advertising, corporate hospitality and sampling presence at every Ashes venue for the summer.
The seven-figure deal, brokered between Sure and Test Match Grounds (TMG), the organisation of seven leading English cricket grounds, sees Sure join Betfair, Volkswagen and Adidas as TMG sponsors.
The Ashes Series starts in the first week of July.
