CSA is very pleased to be partnering with Leicestershire County Cricket Club on their new initiative to give away up to 4,000 complimentary tickets to the Leicestershire v Sussex LV=Insurance County Championship fixture as part of a new #SupportYourCounty initiative.
The initiative is in partnership with ourselves and County Cricket Matters and will see the Club’s Community Team and Running Fox Ambassadors distributing the complimentary tickets within the County to encourage the community to come along and enjoy a day on us at the Uptonsteel County Ground and experience the wonderful matchday experience during an LV=Insurance County Championship fixture.
The ticket giveaway will allow entry to any day of the four day match taking place on Thursday 12 – Sunday 15 May.
Leicestershire County Cricket Club CEO Sean Jarvis said “We are excited to be working with the CSA and County Cricket Matters on this new ticket initiative to help raise awareness of the County game. We look forward to welcoming many Running Foxes supporters and new faces through the gates over the course of the fixture.”
Commenting from the CSA, CEO Becky Fairlie-Clarke said: “This is yet another great initiative from Leicestershire CCC that we are proud to be partnering with them on. Making the County game accessible and opening up red-ball cricket to new and existing audiences of all ages and from all communities is super important to the future of cricket at all levels and central to the ethos of the CSA. We are incredibly excited to be involved and to support in every way we can.”
Annie Chave from County Cricket Club Matters said: “’We need to encourage inclusivity and welcome the parts of society that don’t currently find cricket accessible. By releasing these tickets for no charge Leicestershire CCC are breaking down the barriers that have developed over time, and at County Cricket Matters we are delighted to support this brilliant initiative.”
