SCCC and WPA launch dedicated Live Stream partnership

Statement released by Somerset County Cricket Club 19 July 2021:

Somerset County Cricket Club are pleased to be able to announce that we have enhanced our relationship with WPA Health Insurance.

Already our Principal County Championship Partners, WPA will now be working with us to bring our Members and supporters an exciting and comprehensive viewing experience as our Official Live Stream Partner for the Royal London Cup and the LV= Insurance County Championship.

Beginning with Tuesday's National County fixture, respected cricket journalists Sam Dalling and Harry Everett will be providing the insightful commentary alongside a number of special guests throughout the remainder of the season.

Having our own dedicated commentary team allows the live stream to be perfectly in-sync with the pictures that are being broadcast, and therefore brings the audience the best possible viewing experience.

Regarding the new element of the partnership, SCCC Commercial Director, Caroline Herbert said: "We are delighted to be building on our excellent relationship with WPA. Since we launched our partnership earlier this year, they have been an absolute pleasure to work with.

"Their passion for the game and their desire to keep building positively on our relationship has been great to see and the increased reach that our live streaming platform will afford them is just reward for the contribution that they have made to this already successful partnership.

"This additional investment will not only help to enhance the matchday coverage for our viewers, it's also a great boost for the Club as a whole."

Mark Southern, Sales and Marketing Director at WPA said: "We are thrilled to enhance our support of Somerset County Cricket Club and we're looking forward to seeing more great cricket over the summer months."
