THIS REPRESENTS A UNIQUE AND EXCITING OPPORTUNITY TO GET CLOSER TO YOUR COUNTY TEAM

The new city of Chelmsford is a prime south-east loaction in the London commuter belt just 30 minutes by train from London Liverpool Street Station. Excellent road links, with the M25 only 15 minutes away, as well as air links make the City one of the most accessible in the region.

Chelmsford itself was a Roman market town, the county town of Essex since 1215 and the birthplace of radio. A historic Cathedral town, it has recently been awarded City status.

The City is vibrant and growing, with a thriving university and home to 168,000 people and 6,000 businesses. The City also hosts the annual V Festival and its jewel in the crown – Essex County Cricket Club.

The Club was founded in 1876 and the Club established its current home ground at Chelmsford in 1925. Over the years the County has earnt 6 County Championship titles and 8 one-day trophies making it a truly successful first Club with an army of loyal and active members.

The redevelopment of the ground is set to instantly become a landmark in for the City with unrivalled location close to the City centre, train station, river and parkland. Indeed a recent report from Savills branded the scheme the ‘most prestigious mixed use development’ in the City.

With the Club’s proud heritage this represents a unique and exciting opportunity to get closer to your County team, re-living the many highs and all time Essex greats; Gooch, Taylor, Fletcher, Insole, Hussain et al.

The Cricket Club itself is the defining component of the character of Chelmsford and the new development will help both the City and the Club itself to raise their profiles across the region.
