Essex County Cricket Club (ECCC) have agreed a three-year expansion of their partnership with Scrutton Bland.
The accountancy and insurance firm will sponsor the hospitality suite at the club’s home, the Cloudfm County Ground, where it will have matchday activations and see its branding made visible around the facility.
Scrutton Bland previously agreed a deal with Essex in January to sponsor events held at the county ground in Chelmsford.
“The Scrutton Bland premier suite is a fantastic space for corporate hospitality for members on match days, with a superb view of the pitch and perfect facilities for entertaining,” said Jason Fayers, managing partner at Scrutton Bland.
“As a corporate sponsor, we are able to show our ongoing commitment to cricket in Essex, whilst simultaneously promoting our brand in the region. We are so proud to have such a successful cricket club on our doorstep. Individuals and businesses should show their support for the 2017 county champions.”
Darrell Fox, commercial manager at Essex Cricket, added: “This is an excellent partnership for the club because Scrutton Bland have been one of our most loyal supporters for the last three seasons and have contributed to our success on and off the field.
“Their reputation for supporting sport in the community is one of the reasons we value the partnership so much, plus the on-going support they have given to our England Women’s International fixtures and the inaugural on-pitch marquee events. With the help of Scrutton Bland, we can deliver both fantastic live sport and a great experience at the club.”
