After another victory for England’s Cricket Team in the Second Ashes Test Match against Australia, all eyes are on the tourists as they prepare for their next assignment - a three-day match against Sussex at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground, Hove, which begins tomorrow (Friday).
The match is being generously sponsored by The OCS Group, the international facilities management provider which is based locally in Crawley, West Sussex. The Club would like to thank OCS for their kind support of this prestigious match, with the game against the tourists expected to attract a total of around 20,000 visitors across the three days.
Only a handful of tickets remain for the opening two days of the match and, with a good availability still showing for the third and final day, it is hoped that supporters from across the whole of Sussex and the rest of the country will be able to experience the match and see the tourists in action at Hove.
Martin Gammon, Chief Executive Officer, UK & Europe for OCS, outlined the importance of a Sussex-based company supporting this match: “Sussex is home for OCS as we have our head office in Crawley. We also serve many valued clients in the county, including Gatwick Airport.
“OCS has supported grass roots cricket for many years in various ways in order to engage with the communities in which we work. This has included supporting the annual Chance to Shine project, which is run by The Cricket Foundation to bring competitive cricket and its educational benefits to at least a third of the country’s state schools,” he said.
“In this important year for cricket with the Ashes series at home, OCS is delighted to support Sussex CCC as hosts to the Australian touring team at Hove. It is our hope that as wide an audience as possible gets to see some of the stars of world cricket play on our doorstep here in the county”
Supporters wishing to purchase tickets for the match are urged to contact Sussex CCC as soon as possible in order to secure their place. They can call the ticket line on 0844 264 0206 or visit the website www.sussexcricket.co.uk to buy online.
