Warwickshire scooped two awards, including the Best Domestic Spectator Experience award, at the annual ECB Business of Cricket Awards (BOCAs) in Bristol on Thursday night.

The match day experience at Vitality Blast games at Edgbaston has been voted by fans as the best in cricket in 2023.

Bears hosted seven match days this summer, including the first ever Vitality Blast Off double-header, with more fans than ever before enjoying T20 action in Birmingham.

The Club also won the Tickets or Membership Sales and Marketing Campaign of the Year with Midlands neighbours Derbyshire for the joint creation and delivery of Blast Off.

The innovation which launched the 2023 Vitality Blast season helped both counties achieve record years in terms of attendances and cemented Blast Off as a key fixture for years to come.

The Club was also placed as finalists in four other categories including EDI Initiative Award, Best Digital/Data Innovation, Sustainability Campaign of the Year and Transforming the Women’s Game.

Chris Airey, Head of Marketing, said: “We pride ourselves on delivering the best experience possible for everyone who visits Edgbaston.

“Crowds for our Bears games continue to grow year-on-year and we’re delighted that the hard work on delivering an excellent experience for all has been recognised. Our job now is to make our match days even bigger and better in 2024.

“Blast Off was also a huge success as we hosted two games in front of the Sky TV cameras to kick-off the new T20 season. The game as a whole benefited with increased exposure and ticket sales in the weeks that followed.

“Plans are already underway as we look to bring the concept back again next summer.”

Fans can register now to get priority access to Vitality Blast tickets for 2024 at the very best prices.

T20 Season Passes are also on sale now at our new Super Early Bird price of only £85. That works out at just over £12 per match day and includes access to Blast Off and our big local derby against Worcestershire Rapids.

Fixtures for the 2024 are due to be announced later this month.
