Tui Brewery Ltd, official beer of New Zealand Cricket (NZC), is proud to announce the return of Tui Catch a Million for the upcoming 2017/18 summer of cricket.

The BLACKCAPS are set to welcome the West Indies, Pakistan, Australia and England to our shores in what is expected to be an exciting cricket season. With this in mind, those good buggers at Tui are excited to announce they are bringing back Tui Catch a Million after a two-year hiatus.

This summer there is more money up for grabs than ever before, as Tui is stumping up a total prize pool of $1,150,000 which will be split across all BLACKCAPS short format matches.

Simply catch a six one-handed during one of the ODIs or T20 matches, during the 2017/18 summer of cricket in New Zealand, while wearing the new Tui Catch a Million t-shirt and you could be rewarded with a cool fifty thousand dollars ($50,000NZD).

Jonathan Rea, Tui Brand Manager says Tui is excited to bring Tui Catch a Million back for cricket fans across the country. "Tui Catch a Million is back to add another element to the on-field action this summer. Over the coming months, the world’s best players will be taking aim at the boundary rope, which is why once again we’re offering cold-hard cash to fans who are able to snag a six one-handed."

Previously Tui Catch a Million captured the hearts and minds of kiwis, as spectators were propelled to greatness as would-be heroes. Over the past two Tui Catch a Million campaigns, Tui has given away $950,000 to nine winners who were able to cleanly catch a six. "Everyone knows someone who thinks they can take a one-handed catch and score $50,000, but I can assure you it’s not as simple as it looks from the couch." says Rea.

Tui expects to open its cheque book again as fans are able to grab $50,000 cash by cleanly catching a six one handed during the 23 matches played in New Zealand, whilst wearing a new 2017/18 Tui Catch a Million t-shirt. There is $1,150,000 on offer.

The first Tui Catch a Million match will be the BLACKCAPS versus West Indies as Cobham Oval in Whangarei on 20 December.

The promotion is not only for BLACKCAPS fans, any visiting cricket supporters are also eligible to win at all matches across the nine venues around New Zealand, wearing the new Tui Catch a Million t-shirt.
