LUKE SPORT X Edgbaston9th Aug
Edgbaston Stadium has utilised its recent Specsavers Ashes series Test match to unveil the new partnership with LUKE.
The partnership, which will run until the end of 2019, has given us marquee branding sites within the stadium bowl at Edgbaston, which were installed ready for last week’s Specsavers Ashes Test match and will remain for Vitality Blast Finals Day on 21 September.
Ben Seifas, Commercial Partnerships Manager at Edgbaston, said: “Attracting a global brand like LUKE to our commercial partners portfolio demonstrates just how attractive cricket and our programme of major matches at Edgbaston is in the current sporting landscape.
“Whilst our activation of this initial partnership includes branding for the remainder of 2019, with such a great programme of major matches secured at Edgbaston over the next five years and the launch of a Birmingham-based team in the ECB’s new competition, The Hundred, we’re committed to exploring more opportunities of how these two iconic Midlands brands can work together long term.
Founded in the Midlands in 2001, LUKE has recently established a partnership with The Barmy Army, the England cricket supporters’ group and tour operator. It has also been working with Warwickshire’s Birmingham neighbours Aston Villa since 2018.
Luke Roper, Creative Director said: “We are thrilled to continue building our fantastic relationship with England’s cricket community by partnering with one of the country’s leading cricket grounds, and home to Warwickshire County Cricket Club and the Birmingham Bears.
Edgbaston has a rich heritage we are proud to be part of. Our aim is to engage fully with the team’s fans and cricket supporters world-wide.”
As part of the partnership launch fans can enjoy a fantastic 20% discount on all LUKE products until the end of August using the code ‘EDGBASTON’.
