Warwickshire County Cricket Club has secured a two-year extension with Oldbury-based heating services contractor Lord Combustion Services as an official partner, which provides support to drive energy efficiency at Edgbaston Stadium.

Lord Combustion Services started working with Warwickshire CCC in 2019 and initially installed a new hot water system to supply the South Stand at Edgbaston, which incorporates player changing rooms, kitchens and corporate hospitality rooms. It continues to provide support for the stadium facilities team.

Through the new partnership, Lord Combustion Services brand will proudly adorn the Bears new playing shirts for the Royal London Cup, which are made from recycled polyester material to support the Club’s sustainability goals. It has also secured perimeter branding at Edgbaston for the iconic stadium’s major match days, which include an LV= Insurance Test match versus India this summer and a Test versus Australia in the all-important Ashes series of 2023.

“Stuart and the team at Lord Combustion Services have been fantastic supporters to the Bears over the last three years. Their work as a partner plays a vital part in giving everyone who visits Edgbaston a great experience.

Ben Seifas, Head of Sales & Partnerships at Warwickshire CCC

“With plans being developed to further develop Edgbaston, we’re delighted to continue working together and driving the partnership forward on a long-term basis.”

Stuart Smith, Managing Director of Lord Combustion, said: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Edgbaston, and support their commitment to become the most sustainable cricket stadium in the UK. Their aims align with ours as we celebrate our 40th Anniversary and confirm our commitment to The West Midlands Net Zero Pledge.”
