European baseball got a boost today with sponsors backing the Netherlands National Team.

The Royal Netherlands Baseball and Softball Federation (KNBSB) has announced deals with two major sponsorship partners for the Netherlands National Team at the WBSC Baseball Final Qualifier.

Wellink, a Dutch giant in the food industry, will display its logo on the Dutch helmets.

Welling commercial director Laurens Blanken said: "The Dutch National Team proved that a relatively small country could excel. We are also convinced that we can excel in different markets with our products."

United Foundation, a financial service provider, will be the team's jersey sponsor.

Arnaud Spek, United Foundation manager of finance and control, said: "With our service, we have always aimed to give people the possibility to realise their ambitions. The Dutch National Team fits perfectly into our vision."

World No. 9 Netherlands will compete with No. 8 Venezuela and No. 10 Dominican Republic from 22-26 June in Puebla, Mexico, for baseball's sixth and final spot in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
