Summer is approaching and it's time to look forward to our national sport. Yes, that's cricket, not football by the way! Clubs are preparing for a new season of top class matches up and down the country. Cricket is such a traditional English sport that goes hand in hand with our summer events. It’s also a huge draw for international fans from as far away as South Africa, India and Australia. From schools, village greens and local club grounds to the international Test Series, matches take place every Sunday from April to August.

There’s exciting news for international cricket fans this summer too. There will be some fantastic action taking place in June. Pakistan will be touring this country for the first time since 2010. They'll be competing in four Investec Test Matches and five Royal London One-Day Internationals. They will also be taking part in the NatWest International T20 in the latter part of the summer.

The Sri Lanka team will also be touring England between May and early July. Catch them at venues around the country, including:

  • Thu 19 Mon - 23 May: 1st Investec Test at Headingley.
  • Thu 9-Mon 13 June: 3rd Investec Test  at Lord’s
  • Wed 29 June: 4th Royal London ODI D/N  at Kia Oval.

There will be keen support for both teams from their own local communities around the UK. Fans will be making the most of this opportunity to see some top class international cricket. There's such a buzz surrounding these teams coming to our shores this summer. It’s a fantastic opportunity to involve your business and raise your profile.  A cricket themed marketing campaign throughout the summer months could be a great tie in with your brand.

Show your support for your local cricket clubs by sponsoring teams. Organise corporate days out, provide picnic hampers, fleece blankets and drinks flasks. Don’t underestimate the British weather! Custom branded sports umbrellas, as well as sun screen and lip balms can all be personalised. These will be appreciated by spectators whether it rains or shines.

Cricket clubs can raise funds by designing and selling good quality embroidered hoodies and polo shirts for supporters to wear. Offer branded cricket balls, mini bats and stumps as match mementoes.  We can offer a great range of replica cricket themed items such as keyrings and stress shapes, all suitable for personalisation.

Cricket themed weddings are perfect for sporting couples. Cricket accessories can add a traditional, vintage style to the occasion.  Mini wooden cricket bats and balls make perfect wedding table decorations or centrepieces. Have them personalised to make individual name cards or cricket bat table plans for the reception.  They also make memorable wedding keepsakes for guests when printed with the date and names of the happy couple.

To really make an impact, cricket clubs could invest in some stunning engraved 3D Crystal Cricket Trophies.  Presented as prizes, they are perfect for Award Dinners at the end of the season. For schools or junior tournaments, give out engraved medals for every cricketer to keep. It’s a great way to encourage youngsters to get out there on the pitch and participate in summer sports.
