Bell & Co to Sponsor West Indies Tour Match

February 2017

As the Club's Official Insurance Partner, and tenants of the top floor of the OKI Business & Media Centre, we have extended our partnership with the Club by again supporting the Bell & Co Tour Match.

It is the third successive year that Bell & Co have supported international cricket at Derby, after sponsoring tour matches against Australia and Sri Lanka A in the previous two seasons.

The day/night first-class fixture will be the first game of its kind at the club and will be played under floodlights with a pink ball. Pending ICC confirmation, the game will start at 2pm and finish at 9pm.

The fixture precedes the first day/night Test match in the UK and is likely to feature a number of West Indies first-team stars, including Marlon Samuels and Carlos Brathwaite.

Managing Director, Richard Salt added: “The visit of the West Indies is an exciting game for Derbyshire’s players, supporters and the city. The Bell & Co Tour match is becoming a known calendar event and one we are really proud to be associated with. Our Club is an example to others of its profile countrywide in the way it is run and we are delighted that our partnership increases year on year.”

Commercial Director, Ryan Duckett said: "We're delighted to further extend our successful partnership with Bell & Co who will once again support international cricket in Derby this summer.  It will be a great opportunity for cricket fans across Derbyshire, who might have never watched a first-class fixture before, to enjoy a night of pink-ball cricket at the height of summer.”
