THE SKY’S THE LIMIT FOR CLYDESDALE BANK 40 CRICKET AS THOUSANDS OF PRIZE WINNING BALLOONS ARE LAUNCHED.
Yesterday the ECB and Clydesdale Bank quite literally launched an exciting new competition to give people across the country the chance to be on the “Road to Lord’s”.
The Kia Oval not only hosted the opening game of the 2012 Clydesdale Bank 40 competition between Surrey and Somerset, but it also hosted the very first Road To Lord’s competition as thousands of balloons were released into the London sky.
It really is finders’ keepers as each balloon will have a prize winning tag attached to it which - when it finally lands – will give lucky finders the opportunity to be in with a chance of winning a special Clydesdale Bank 40 prize.
Steve Elworthy, Director of Marketing and Communications at the ECB said:
“We are always looking for innovative ways to interact with cricket fans and members of the public and we believe the “Road to Lord’s” competition is exactly that. Not only was it a great spectacle to see thousands of balloons released into the sky in central London, but it also offers fans far and wide the chance to win a great once in a lifetime prize.”
Derbyshire’s Clydesdale Bank 40 campaign gets underway versus the Unicorns at Wormsley tomorrow with a 1.45pm start.
The Falcons’ first home match in the 2012 competition is against Warwickshire Bears on Bank Holiday Monday 4th June at the County Ground, also with a 1.45pm start.
