The ECB’s prestigious annual Business of Cricket Awards celebrates off-the-pitch excellence within the sport and Somerset County Cricket Club were the big winners after scooping three awards.
The jewel in the crown of the Business of Cricket Awards is the highly sought after County Recognition Award, which Somerset CCC lifted as an acknowledgement for an extremely impressive year, which saw the Club achieve record revenues and attendances.
After winning the award Somerset CCC Head of Commercial Operations Jez Curwin said: “Everyone at the Club should be really proud of what we have achieved over the last 12 months. We have a small but dedicated and enthusiastic team who are constantly striving to reach the highest possible standards in everything that they do.”
The Club also secured the Marketing & Communications Award for Category B/C Grounds for its 2016 Membership campaign along with its incredibly successful promotion of the NatWest T20 Blast competition.
The hat-trick of awards was completed by the Commercial Partnerships Award for the Club’s work with Official NatWest T20 Blast Partner, The Real Shaving Company.
Jane Fletcher, Group Sales & Marketing Director for The Real Shaving Company said: “We really enjoy working with Somerset County Cricket Club and are delighted that our partnership has gained recognition from the ECB.”
