Lancashire Country Cricket Club announces new official wealth management partner

Lancashire Country Cricket Club has signed an agreement which will see Brown Shipley become the club's official wealth management partner.

Brown Shipley has signed an enhanced and extended two-year sponsorship with Lancashire County Cricket Club which will see the firm become the club’s official wealth management partner.

The new partnership, launched ahead of the Fourth Investec Test Match at Emirates Old Trafford starting on Friday, has seen the creation of a Brown Shipley Club Suite.

The Brown Shipley branded suite used to be the old home dressing room in the iconic Pavilion at Emirates Old Trafford and now contains a number of images of Lancashire greats from the club’s 153 year history.

Commenting on the new sponsorship, Ian Sackfield, chief executive officer at Brown Shipley, said: “This is an exciting time for Lancashire County Cricket Club and I am thrilled that Brown Shipley will be part of an actioned-packed calendar of events at Emirates Old Trafford this summer and next.

“As a business with a strong heritage and commitment to Manchester and the North West, I am also pleased to continue our partnership with one of the region’s preeminent sporting teams.”

As part of the partnership, Lancashire County Cricket Club and Brown Shipley will be hosting a number of city centre based events for North West businesses, whilst Brown Shipley will also benefit from some unique behind-the-scenes experiences at Emirates Old Trafford such as a training session with Club legends.

Brown Shipley will also benefit from pitch facing perimeter boarding at Emirates Old Trafford for all international and domestic fixtures as well as branding in the suite which can be used for small meetings, private dinners, events and matchday hospitality.

Sales and marketing director of Lancashire County Cricket Club, Justin Hopwood, added: “Brown Shipley have been a long-serving partner of ours for a number of years now so we’re delighted that they have extended their relationship with us.

“I believe both Lancashire CCC and Brown Shipley have similar values, with both organisations having an incredibly long and proud history as well as a long-term focus in the North-West.

"We’re very much looking forward to working closely with another iconic North-West institution over the next two years and beyond.”
