 Thirsty cricket enthusiasts at this year’s annual cricket encounter between Royal College and S. Thomas’ College will have the entire range of Elephant House soft drinks (as well as KIK Cola), Elephant House ice cream and Keells food to select from at the SSC grounds.

Elephant House, a pioneering sponsor, has once again signed up in support of this much looked forward to school match as official soft drink, ice cream and food sponsor. This means that Elephant House soft drinks, ice cream and Keells food products too will be plentifully available for everyone to enjoy.

7, 8 and 9 March will see supporters from both schools flocking in their thousands to the SSC grounds to witness this nerve-wracking battle between bat and ball. Interestingly this annual ‘Battle of the Blues’ has evolved into a tradition, where students past and present meet and reunite on the sidelines of this ‘showpiece of school cricket’, with some even making a special trip home from overseas at this time.

Chandima Perera, Head of Beverages at Elephant House, Vice President JKH, said: “Elephant House as a brand is synonymous with youthful exuberance and fun. At the same time, it is a name that has been loved by generations of consumers. This is why we take every opportunity to support traditional sporting events like this and encourage the true sporting spirit right from school level.”
