Cricket Hospitality Packages: Six reasons to treat your client
Unbeatable atmosphere for business and pleasure
There’s nothing like being there when the batsman swings and the gunshot tells you it’s a six. Or when the bowler cartwheels into a spinner and the bails explode along with the crowd. These aren’t just moments of sporting history: they also break the ice and strengthen the bonds with the clients who count.
Cricket hospitality isn’t like Gala’s other sports packages. Of course, you’ll be right there in the best seats for all the big match’s flashpoints. But the nature of cricket means the action can also unfold in the background, giving you and your guests the time and space to wander in the sunshine, sip a drink, sit down for a gourmet meal and build the trust that is so essential to business.
Gala-exclusive celebrity guests for speeches and meet ‘n’ greets
Picture the scene. Your client is already having an unforgettable afternoon, cheering on the England team and spoilt with fine foods and refreshments in the luxury hospitality suites that Gala offers at every major UK cricket ground. Then they pinch themselves in disbelief as an A-list ex-international cricketing icon arrives to give a rousing speech or simply mingle for the afternoon.
Gala is proud to work with the biggest names and best raconteurs the sport has to offer, including such legends as Michael Vaughan, Curtly Ambrose, Glenn McGrath and Alec Stewart. It’s one more treasured memory for your client to take away from their special day – and another reason why your business relationship just went up a gear.
Edgbaston cricket hospitality for Tests, T20 and The Hundred
Gala offers the best seats at all the UK’s leading cricket grounds (choose from our cricket hospitality venues here). But a day out at the mighty Edgbaston is something special.
There’s no better viewing point in this iconic Birmingham ground than Gala’s own pitch-facing Wyatt Suite. Step inside and dazzle your client with all-day gourmet catering, complimentary bar and the sun-soaked viewing balcony where you’ll catch every hit at upcoming events like the T20 Vitality Blast, The Hundred and the feverishly anticipated England V India Test.
Oval cricket hospitality for Vitality Blast and The Hundred
The Oval is simply a British institution, and the only way to raise the thrill of a match day in South London is to experience this fabled cricket ground with Gala.
We’re proud to offer The Oval’s best hospitality suites: comfortable, stylish, luxurious and staffed by a team who are attentive to your every need, from topping up your champagne glass to delivering fantastic food to your seats. Above all, there’s nowhere better to watch the match, with our seated viewing balconies showcasing all the drama from the upcoming Vitality Blast and The Hundred.
Old Trafford cricket hospitality for internationals and more
The home of Lancashire Cricket Club is also one of the North’s true fortresses of sport. If you’ve never been to Old Trafford, you’ll be floored by the electric atmosphere that crackles through this legendary ground. But even if you’re a regular visitor, you can trust Gala’s renowned Old Trafford cricket hospitality to raise the excitement to fever pitch.
Your client might be expecting a day at the cricket – but they won’t have reckoned on the best hospitality suite in the ground, with top-of-the-world views over the crease matched by five-star catering, refreshments and comfort. With Gala, it’s a done deal.
Lords Long Room Lunch for the cricket world’s top names
Lords is rightly known as the ‘home of cricket’, while the elegant Long Room in Lords Pavilion has been described as ‘the most evocative four walls in the world of cricket’.
It’s no wonder, then, that Gala’s famous Long Room Lunch is fast becoming one of the biggest dates in the cricketing diary, inviting you and your most valued clients to take your seats, settle back over a gourmet meal and hear the sport’s biggest talking-points and upcoming matches set to rights by an all-star panel. This year, prepare to welcome England’s One Day superstars and World Cup winners Jos Buttler and Jason Roy, alongside the iconic Yorkshire and England fast bowler Darren Gough.
