Ideal Time To Renew Or Take Out New Membership – And Perfect Xmas Gift

Ideal Time To Renew Or Take Out New Membership – And Perfect Xmas Gift

The new fixtures are out for Worcestershire's 150th anniversary season in 2015 – and now is the perfect time to renew or take out a new membership for as little as £4.34* per day.

It is the ideal opportunity for anyone who may have been a member previously to reacquaint themselves with the club in what will be a special 12 months in their illustrious history.

Stop for a minute and think what is on offer – new top grade facilities including The View, quality Division One LV= County Championship cricket, exciting new signings like Alex Gidman and a special programme of events being planned to celebrate the 150th season.

The good news is members can enjoy the entire season for just £204 if purchased by direct debit before 31st January 2015 – surely an ideal Christmas present.

At £204, premium membership is now cheaper than it was for the 2014 season if purchased from February onwards!

Worcestershire CCC commercial director Jon Graham said: "2015 is a massive year for us, we are proud of what we are, and we don't want to price people out of the market.

"When you think of the cost of football or rugby now, for a fraction of the cost people can come to New Road for the equivalent of less than £4.50 a day and see the best young talent this country is producing in the top flight of first class cricket.

"The focus of the membership for 2015 is very much to take a bit of a retrospective view because it's our 150th anniversary.

"Supporters that have previously been members, and in 2014, have helped to contribute to the history of this great club and, as we approach our 150th anniversary year it’s a perfect time to renew that membership and get back into the fold.

"Lots of things have happened here during the last year whether on or off the field, and The View was opened in its entirety and generated significant new income streams within the club and with vastly improved facilities for supporters.

"For those people that have been away for quite a while, I know they'll be pleasantly surprised if they join us in our 150th anniversary year.

"From a playing perspective, what better time than when we're in Division One, four days against Warwickshire, four days against New Zealand, Yorkshire, Somerset, there’s a lot to look forward to this summer.

"It's going to be a nostalgic year, lots of things going on off the field which we would encourage members to get involved with. We'll only have one crack at 150 years so we want to make it a good one."

*Based on 47 days of cricket when purchasing premium membership by direct debit before January 31 2015.
