Community Sponsorship

At Middlesex County Cricket Club we are proud to represent such a diverse, vibrant and talented community. Middlesex is our home, your home, but it’s a challenging one. We’re using the power of cricket and the love of the game to change lives and unlock potential across every part of the county, but we can only do this in partnership with our community sponsors and investors.

Middlesex is Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Hounslow, Richmond and Camden. Middlesex is a county of contrast, of great diversity, a patchwork of communities, some of which are surprisingly struggling to thrive. Young people, disabled people and future community leaders are not getting a chance to achieve their potential.

But we’re changing this. Our support is nurturing hundreds of young people and communities.

Our grassroots programmes are helping to foster community cohesion, to bring out leadership, to give young people confidence and skills, to enhance careers and raise educational standards. We’re proud to serve our community and we have big ambitions for the future.

Our community sponsors and investors are the lifeblood of our programmes and with their help we’re making a huge difference within and around the county.

We work closely with our community sponsors to meet the goals of both us as a county and of them as sponsors, and the investment they provide helps continue to fund vital programmes for the good of those within the county.

We work with a wide range of community sponsors and investors, from blue-chip companies with defined corporate social responsibility objectives, foundations and trusts who have the same goals as we ourselves do, small businesses who want to give back to their local community and individuals – people who love the game and their community as much as we do.
