Selco Builders Warehouse
Warwickshire County Cricket Club has been bowled over after securing a two-year sponsorship deal with one of the UK’s leading builders merchants.
Selco Builders Warehouse will become the club’s first official builders merchants partner, as well as being the shirt sponsor of its Natwest T20 Blast – in which Warwickshire play as Birmingham Bears - and the Royal London One-Day Cup tournament.
Geographically, it is a perfect fit for the two parties with Selco having its central support centre in Wythall and five further branches in and around the Birmingham area – with a sixth to follow in Coventry this summer.
Chris Cunliffe, chief executive of Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “We are delighted to be joining forces with Warwickshire County Cricket Club and look forward to a successful period for all parties both on and off the cricket field.
“Birmingham has been a key location in the formation and growth of Selco so we are delighted to be supporting one of the city’s great sporting institutions.
“The fact that Warwickshire County Cricket Club invests strongly in the community was a further attraction.

“With the club winning the Natwest T20 Blast and finishing as runners-up in the LV County Championship and Royal London One-Day Cup in 2014, it’s a great time to be cementing our new partnership.”
Colin Povey, chief executive of Warwickshire CCC added: “We’re delighted to welcome Selco as a major partner in such an important year for the club, with an exciting defence of our Natwest T20 Blast title and the third Investec Ashes Test at Edgbaston to look forward to.
“It’s great that Selco share our passion for the game and we hope that working with them over the next two years can help bring the club more success on and off the field.”
