Edgbaston Cricket Ground has hosted some memorable matches in the past. Who can forget England’s narrow victory in the 2005 Ashes, which went some way to clinching the series? There is the famous image of England’s Andrew Flintoff consoling Australian fast bowler Brett Lee at the end of the game. Edgbaston always creates a fantastic atmosphere for cricket with the famous Eric Hollies stand, producing magnificent vocal support towards the England team. Edgbaston has been home for some big international heroes over the years, with names such as John Jameson, Dennis Amiss, Bob Willis, Brian Lara, Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott representing Warwickshire.
Since it’s redevelopment in 2011, Edgbaston has become one of the smartest and most impressive cricket stadiums in the world. Its increased size of 25,000 spectators gives it the second largest capacity in the country, behind Lords. Former England batsman and SKY Sports Commentator, David Lloyd recently compared the new stand to Melbourne, for its four tiers and smart looking presence, which was a big compliment. Within these tiers are some amazing hospitality facilities which are second to none. With such a large stand the majority of the facilities are pitch facing, which make a hospitality package so much more appealing. With Executive seats just outside from the facilities, guests do not have to leave the corporate area from when they have arrived until the end of the day.
Edgbaston’s hospitality packages include a number of high quality guest speakers which really help to enhance a hospitality package. You can picture your client who is a cricket fan, going away and telling his friends and family that he has just heard an interview or had a chance to ask a question to a former England player, such as Alec Stewart or Graham Gooch for example.
Cricket hospitality is a superb way to entertain your clients and there can be no better venue to do this, than the newly transformed Edgbaston Cricket ground.
