Cooper Associates announces Ground Naming Rights Partnership with Somerset County Cricket Club.
Cooper Associates are delighted to announce themselves as the Ground Naming Rights Partner of Somerset County Cricket Club. The home of Somerset County Cricket Club will now be officially known as “The Cooper Associates County Ground”.
At the Club’s AGM yesterday, the partnership was officially announced. The five year agreement builds upon the existing relationship between Cooper Associates and Somerset County Cricket Club. Cooper Associates have an excellent history of championing sport in the region, with strong links to Taunton Cricket Club, as well as sponsoring England international and former Somerset wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler. In addition, Carl Gazzard, who played an integral part in Somerset’s T20 Cup triumph in 2005, is also a respected member of the team, as well as James Regan who joined the Company after leaving the Club last year.
Following the announcement of this agreement, Cooper Associates’ CEO Lee Cooper said:
“Cooper Associates has a strong affinity with Somerset CCC and becoming the Ground Naming Rights Partner is the culmination of the relationship that has been built over the last few years. The Club and its players are an integral part of Somerset with core values synergistic with our own. This partnership is without question one of our most exciting to date and we look forward to both the new season and further strengthening our relationship with the club.
Somerset’s CEO, Guy Lavender adds: “This commercial partnership with Cooper Associates, highlights our determination to develop excellent relationships with our local partners in order to build the financial strength of the Club. This agreement is a key component of ensuring the long term success of Somerset CCC, both on and off the pitch. Cooper Associates are a major player in the local business community, have won awards for their customer service and are exactly the calibre of company that we want to work alongside. We have an excellent existing relationship with them and this partnership will see that build and strengthen over the years ahead. We are very much looking forward to working with them and achieving our shared objectives for both organisations.
