We did it

Please help us and #ClubTogether

For many of us, Cricket is not just a sport, it is a way of life.

The turmoil that was to ensue was realised when our team were recalled from a pre-season tour of Dubai in March after just 5 days in the UAE.

Since then the Club have had to make difficult and timely decisions to ensure the Club will continue to operate through a sustained period of uncertainty.

Responding to the situation

Our initial goal was always going to be the safeguarding of our Players, Staff, Members and Supporters.

Players & Staff have been furloughed, budgets have been cut and non-essential projects have been put on hold. We have been in survival mode, planning for the worst and hoping for the best.

Planning for a return

With the news that professional Cricket can return in some form, yet to be decided by the ECB and fellow Counties, we are working towards returning to the field of play from 01 August 2020 as announced by the ECB.

At the time of writing this, Essex Cricket are unaware if spectators will be allowed to attend a revised fixture schedule for the remainder of this summer.

Bringing you coverage

Essex Cricket recognise, that for many, the possibility of not being able to visit The Cloudfm County Ground this season will be a challenge, both mentally and emotionally. Foregoing the opportunity to meet friends and sharing your passion for the game.

By helping us to recover revenue lost from Ticket, Matchday, Shop and Membership sales, money raised can be spent on an improved coverage of our revised fixture schedule, ensuring all Essex fans can still follow their team in action. 

More details of this will be announced as soon as a new fixture list is released.

Our mission is simple...

Ensuring that we can ride this wave of uncertainty is a must, and making sure we are in a position to be able to entertain you once Cricket resumes has become our primary objective.

“Cricket is for enjoyment and for entertainment. It must be profitable; it must be business-like; but most of all, it must be cricket.” - D.J. Insole

Why we need your help!

By deciding to #ClubTogether with your fellow supporters of Essex County Cricket Club, you are helping to fund the anticipated shortfall that will go a long way in helping us achieve our objective, being able to entertain you!

We hope we will see you at The Cloudfm County Ground as soon as is physically possible.
