Club Elite Membership Would Make Ideal Xmas Present

Club Elite Membership Would Make Ideal Xmas Present

Looking for the ideal Christmas present? Well it could be yours via Worcestershire's new Club Elite membership package which means one of the best seats in the house in The View can be yours for just £10 a day in 2015.

You will be able to witness the county's return to Division One of the LV = County Championship in the club's 150th anniversary year and enjoy superb facilities for £400 via the Club Elite scheme.

A potential 40 days top class cricket is on offer for anyone purchasing a Club Elite membership. They will be entitled to attend all eight Championship matches, four Royal London One-Day Cup ties and the four-day tourists match with New Zealand in mid May.

Club Elite Members can take advantage of the cushioned seating, use the View Members Suite and be entitled to free tea and coffeee during matches.

The new membership package has been introduced after the success in 2014 of the Elite Membership which encompasses all matches at New Road – including the NatWest T20 Blast – and will cost £600 for next summer.

It is again close to repeating its initial sell-out of 2014 when all 168 seats were sold out within a month – and already there is a lengthy waiting list should anyone choose not to renew.

Membership and ticketing manager Amy Francetti said: "For 2014, we had 168 seats to sell in the Elite Membership in The View. We realised there was a massive demand for them and they sold out within a month.

"For 2015, we evaluated the usage and could see there was a demand for an additional package which is the new Club Elite Membership.

"Membership is also transferable so if someone is unable to attend a match, they can give their card to someone else to use on that day.

"Club Elite Members will also be entitled to use the View Members Suite with a private bar, have free tea and coffee and a cushioned seat to watch the cricket from an incredible viewpoint."

Francetti added: "The Elite Membership is close to again being a sell-out and in any case there is already a substantial waiting list.

"Hopefully people not lucky enough to take advantage of the Elite Membership will be able to participate in the Club Elite Membership. Hopefully it will be a success like the other package."
