Heriots Cricket Club are looking for a main sponsor to help funding as they wish to continue offering free participation to children.

 

Heriots Cricket Club is a members-based cricket club situated in the heart of Edinburgh, with 4 men’s teams who compete throughout the summer, as well as a mixed women’s team. We offer a great community in which to come and enhance your cricketing skill, for cricketers of all levels. Heriots CC are the current ESCA League and T20 Champions and we have held every available trophy as a club over the last 3 seasons. One of our core values is making in impact in our community and as a result, we recently embarked on the campaign of providing free cricket training to any and all children who wanted to join and have had fantastic participation numbers in that time.

All of our senior 1xi fixtures are streamed live via Frogboxand we have a large number of spectators for all of our teams, both when they play at home and away. The current 1 xisquad has four Scotland internationals in the side, which includes Mark Watt who is a professional signed at Derbyshire County Cricket Club. We have an excellent following on our social media channels across FB, Twitter and Instagram, with approximately four thousand followers across the various platforms and post regularly to keep fans and followers up to date.

This year we are looking for a main sponsor to the club, which we can brand on our playing shirts, training equipment, stumps and around our club, as well as the scoreboard. The reason for our recent search for support is multifaceted but most notably is down to our desire to continue our work as the only club in central Edinburgh to offer free participation to children – naturally while this is a fantastic campaign, it does not happen easily, and we are in need of funds to provide coaching and equipment in these sessions.

Furthermore, Heriots Cricket Club will host an T20 ICC World Cup qualifying event during July 2023, where fully fledged international matches will take place, providing a great opportunity for exposure for any potential sponsors of the club.

We are looking for a partner for the upcoming season (begins April ’23) and would be delighted to talk to anyone in more detail about what this involves.

Many thanks!

Other Partners

We are in discussions with only a handful of other brands to support in some way but the figures are not in the ballpark of where we need to be for our junior cricket offering, we are in need of a headline sponsor in order to make good on our promises.
