Warwickshire CCC and FBC Manby Bowdler extend legal partnership

Warwickshire County Cricket Club has extended terms with FBC Manby Bowdler to continue as it’s Official Legal Partner for a further two-year term.

FBC Manby Bowdler, which has offices across the West Midlands and Shropshire, has been working with Warwickshire CCC since 2016 and the new agreement ensures that it can maximise opportunities at a time when Edgbaston Stadium hosts its biggest ever programme of major match cricket.

In addition to providing legal support for the club, FBC Manby Bowdler will have branding on the sleeve of Warwickshire’s County Championship shirt, stadium perimeter branding at Edgbaston, hospitality on major match days and player appearances. It will also utilise space at Edgbaston for meetings and events throughout the year.

"Our business operations have received excellent support from its team of legal experts, whilst we have been able to provide opportunities and experiences to help the firm expand its presence in Birmingham."

Gareth Roberts, Commercial Director at Warwickshire CCC, said: “Our relationship with FBC Manby Bowdler has been a true partnership; our business operations have received excellent support from its team of legal experts, whilst we have been able to provide opportunities and experiences to help the firm expand its presence in Birmingham.

“With the biggest fixtures in the international game coming to Edgbaston and the launch of a new domestic tournament next year, we’re delighted to extend the agreement for a further two-years and work together on more exciting projects.”

As part of Edgbaston’s bumper programme of major match cricket in 2019, the Birmingham venue hosts five matches in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, the opening Test of the Specsavers Ashes Series and Vitality Blast Finals Day.

Warwickshire CCC will also celebrate the 25th anniversary of its historic 1994 season, which saw the Bears win the County Championship, B&H Cup and the Sunday League; the only time that a county has won three trophies in a season.

Neil Lloyd, Sales Director, at FBC Manby Bowdler, said “Our partnership with Warwickshire CCC has been really beneficial for the members of the club, as well as our staff, clients and introducers. The match day programme over the next couple of years is second to none and we look forward sharing some sensational moments with Gareth and the team.”
