NMB Bank has been a sponsor of the annual Petra High School T20 Cricket Tournament since 2012.

“This year we agreed to sponsor the ambulance service since it was pointed out to us that this was a large cost centre for the tournament, but an extremely important one,” NMB marketing manager Lindiwe Thebethebe.

The Petra High School Annual T20 Cricket Tournament was inaugurated in 2008, with just three high schools participating. It has since become a fixture that attracts schools from around the country.
