Bloemfontein: FREE STATE CRICKET is extremely excited with the transition to the new orange machine era, since their inclusion of the top 8 of division 1 teams as part of the Cricket South Africa’s domestic restructuring model.

The orange machine that used to dominate cricket in South Africa and that has always been part of the proud history of Sports within the province, and the Knights name with recent social media poles, led to the decision to keep the Knights name but revert back to the orange colours.

FSCU therefore is proud to announce that their division 1 professional side will remain as the Knights Cricket team with their new corporate logo (featured image).

FSCU believe that with the new corporate image fans will be able to once again associate with the team through “THE FREE STATE WAY”.

“We have a strong backing of already secured sponsorships that are ever keen to start this new journey with us and with fresh brand identity we will continue to attract more sponsorships and opportunities.” said the FREE STATE CRICKET UNION.

“The Orange machine has arrived! With the new aggressive and impressive identity logo, our approach on field will be no different. With the major support from corporate SA this will become the biggest year for Free State Cricket and the Knights!” commented the CEO of FSCU, Johan van Heerden.

“We are very excited with the new system and that Free State will be a team on its own. The Knights orange machine will surely hit the ground running and hopefully we can put a few good performances in quickly,” said Pite van Biljon, the Knights captain.

“With some good sponsorships lined up, the fans surely want to be associated with The Free State Way. We are very excited for this new adventure. Knights characteristics of a proud team and proud culture we hopefully will make our fans proud.” concluded van Biljon.
