Dear Warwickshire Members,
Sadly Sunday wasn’t the ending that we wanted for this unusual season, in narrowly missing out on a place in the Vitality Blast quarter finals or to say farewell to the great retiring Bears of Jeetan Patel, Tim Ambrose and Ian Bell.
We will of course recognise their fantastic service to the Club in due course. However, with the dust now settling on a very surreal season, I wanted to write to all Members to thank you for your incredible support.
Having joined Warwickshire CCC in mid-July, I have seen the great efforts that have been made to ensure that county cricket could be played in a COVID-safe environment over the last eight weeks.
We have certainly missed having you present at Edgbaston cheering on the Bears, but we also widely recognise the immense contribution that you have made from afar in helping the Club through such a difficult period.
Annual Membership subscriptions form an important part of our revenues to support the investment that we can make in the teams and the facilities at Edgbaston. Having more than 60 per cent of our Members make the decision to donate the annual subscription is something that everyone at the Club is very grateful for and it will certainly lessen the financial impact of COVID in this difficult period.
When we communicated our Membership proposals in late-July, we highlighted a package of benefits for Members who donated their annual subscription as a small token of our appreciation. We are currently working on the delivery of these benefits to you and will share details in the coming weeks, alongside information about Membership for the 2021 season which is due to go on sale in October.
I hope that you have also been able to watch our live stream of our Bob Willis Trophy and Vitality Blast matches through edgbaston.com and via the new Edgbaston app. We have certainly enjoyed bringing our matches to you at home throughout this period.
We are always keen to receive further feedback on the live stream process to support further improvements. Please do email further thoughts to our team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once again, thank you on behalf of everyone at Warwickshire CCC for such incredible support and we hope to see you back at Edgbaston in 2021.
Warwickshire County Cricket Club
