Birmingham Bears and Selco Builders Warehouse have joined forces on a ticketing scheme for schools ahead of the Vitality Blast T20 campaign in 2022.
Every school that registers for Six4Schools can get access to adult tickets for all Vitality Blast group fixtures at Edgbaston in 2022 for only £12, a saving of £7 compared to the usual advance ticket price.
Each adult ticket purchased will also earn their selected school £6 cashback to be reinvested back to supporting the education of local children.
What’s more, each registered school that sells 20 tickets is entered into a draw to win £1,000 of building materials towards a school development project. The school that sells the most tickets will also receive a signed Bears shirt and a player visit.
“We’re working closely with the club to get more children supporting the Bears in the upcoming T20 campaign,” said Warwickshire Cricket Board Schools Manager, Danny Maskell.
“Six4Schools is great as it gives a school a considerable discount on the price of tickets for its network of parents and, more importantly, it gives money back to the schools as a thank you for their support.Danny Maskell, Warwickshire Cricket Board Schools Manager
“Warwickshire Cricket Board works with around 250 schools throughout the year and we hope that as many as schools as possible can join this programme and hopefully support the Bears as they aim for Finals Day this summer.”
Bears players Olly Hannon-Dalby, Chris Benjamin, Jake Lintott and Thea Brookes launched the scheme with Selco Builders Warehouse at Woodthorpe Junior and Infant School in Kings Heath, which earned £168 cashback through Six4Schools last summer.
Carine Jessamine, Marketing Director of Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Six4Schools initiative to help encourage the next generation of Birmingham Bears supporters to visit Edgbaston for the unique experience a T20 game brings, as well as the additional cashback element for schools.
“We are sponsoring the Family Stand for 2022 so this scheme fits perfectly with our aims and objectives for the year.”
