Enjoy T20 Blast cricket in style as Birmingham Bears take on local rivals Worcestershire Rapids in a crucial derby match, with an international cricket star guest to be announced soon!
Whether you’re a seasoned veteran, or completely new to the shortest format, you can be sure that T20 Blast cricket is a thrilling sight to behold. Having won the first tournament in 2014, Birmingham Bears again reached the final in 2017, where they were defeated by Notts Outlaws. With a fabulous and talented squad featuring the likes of England star Chris Woakes, Olly Stone, Jeetan Patel and Australian captain Chris Green, the Bears are likely to be in the hunt for honours again and will be amongst the favourites to progress to the Finals.
Opponents Worcestershire Rapids exceeded all expectations in 2018 by winning the Vitality T20 Blast competition, making the final again in 2019 so this is sure to be a thrilling encounter!
We are delighted to offer a great value hospitality package in the salubrious Wyatt Suite for this compelling derby match which includes food, complimentary drinks and superb balcony viewing for the match.
Birmingham Bears v Worcestershire Rapids: The two old Midlands rivals face off once more in what promises to be a fascinating encounter replete with explosive big-hitting, canny bowling and spectacular fielding. Last year the Bears suffered a defeat at the hands of the Rapids in a thrilling match, with the Worcestershire team sealing victory on the back of a brilliant century from England star Moeen Ali, as the Rapids chased down the target in style. Moeen has been a thorn in the side of the Bears recently as he also hit a match-winning century in the 2018 meeting between the sides! Revenge is very much on the cards and Bears fans will be desperate to win back local bragging rights!
International Cricket Star Guest Speaker: We are due to announce a big name in the coming weeks but last year we were delighted to welcome batting legend and former England captain Graham Gooch. Previous years have seen us entertained by the likes of Matthew Hoggard, Steve Harmison and Jonathan Trott!
The Wyatt Suite: Our top-class facility at Edgbaston is the pitch-facing Wyatt Suite, which offers some of the best views of the action, both from within the suite and from the superb viewing balcony seats immediately outside. This intimate facility offers great attention to detail and service for our maximum 80 guests at a great value price. All guests will have the opportunity for a photograph with our star guest!
