Update regarding Tuesday’s Streaming Issues


We hope our fans enjoyed another fantastic evening of Vitality Blast cricket at Fortress Chelmsford on Tuesday evening.

For those enjoying the match away from The Cloud County Ground, we unfortunately experienced an unavoidable issue with our Live Stream and a fraudulent copyright claim, which resulted in YouTube ending our broadcast and removing the match from our account.

We are aware of similar incidents taking place across county cricket and have informed YouTube directly to resolve this matter to prevent this from happening to Essex or other clubs in the future.

Our production team were able to set up a Facebook Live stream of the match, which was the only solution to broadcast the conclusion of the match.

We fully understand the frustrations of our viewers and supporters who were not able to watch the exciting finish of the match.

For what it’s worth, here are those winning runs that were broadcast via Facebook Live. We appreciate it isn’t the same experience but certainly enjoyable viewing…
