Edgbaston has launched a new corporate cricket event, giving participants the opportunity to play on the ground’s hallowed turf – fresh from a summer of international cricket. 

The event on Wednesday 6 September will give eight businesses the opportunity to play a minimum of three matches at the stadium, all on first-class pitches used by the Bears and England throughout the season. 

Games will have a big match feel with access to the pitch-side dugouts and changing rooms, official scoreboard, and the action will be accompanied by music to replicate the famous Vitality Blast atmosphere. 

A pre-match breakfast in the Warwickshire Suite will start proceedings, before teams are introduced to their coach for the day, a former professional player. 

Lunch will be served in the Player’s Dining Room and each team will be treated to a selection of drinks throughout the day.

After the final – teams will head to the Warwickshire Suite for a drinks reception, followed by a two-course prize-giving dinner to reflect on the day’s action.

“It’s the ultimate corporate event,” said Ben Seifas, Head of Sales & Partnerships.  “A chance to play on the pitch here at Edgbaston is rare. The exclusivity of this event provides a great opportunity for a corporate day out.”

“Our aim is to replicate a big match feel for participants, giving them a unique experience for the business and their clients.

Edgbaston’s Corporate Cricket is limited to eight teams, so please book early to avoid disappointment. For booking enquiries or more information, please email commercial@edgbaston.com.
