Woodland Group sign extension until 2021


Essex County Cricket Club is thrilled to announce global logistics business, Woodland Group, have signed a three-year extension to their partnership agreement.

As long-term partners of the Club, Woodland Group will continue their sponsorship of Essex’s official One-Day Cup shirt and develop their existing branding around the ground.

The Eagles will look to go one better in 2018 and reach a Lord’s final, after losing out in the semi-finals in their Woodland branded kits in 2017.

Darrell Fox, Essex CCC Commercial Manager, is delighted to see Woodland commit their long-term future to the Club and said: “It is exciting news for the Club that Woodland Group have decided to extend their partnership with the County Champions.

“This is another show of commitment from one of our long-term partners that Essex County Cricket Club is a premium sporting Club to be a part of. All the staff at Woodland Group really buy into the Essex way, and understand what the Club is looking to achieve over the coming years.

“Hopefully this agreement can be celebrated by more success in the 2018 season and our partnership with Woodland Group will continue to grow over the coming years. Everyone at the Club would like to thank them for their continued support.”

Kevin Stevens, Chairman and CEO of Woodland Group, commented: “We are proud partners of Essex Cricket and very much look forward to continuing to support the club in growing its success and achieving its keen ambitions for 2018 and beyond.

“This long-standing relationship is built on a true passion for the sport, the team and our local grounds so close to Woodland’s UK Headquarters in Chelmsford. Our involvement with and support of Essex Cricket has become part of the Woodland culture and together, we look forward to further building on last year’s success.”
