“To be on the shortlist for YouTube Channel of the Year is just reward for the hard work and effort that our media team demonstrate every single day,” she said. “To be going up against some of the biggest names in the world of sport is exactly where Somerset County Cricket Club deserves to be. Our digital output has been exceptional over the last few years and it’s only right that those responsible should receive recognition.
“The output on our YouTube channel is engaging and diverse, and the livestream of our matchdays has been a real gamechanger. Initially designed to bring the live action to our Members and supporters during the Covid-19 pandemic, the livestream has grown organically into a trailblazing, professional and high-quality broadcast that is the envy of its peers.
“Our loyal, dedicated and engaged audience is growing by the day, and we were the first County Cricket Club to receive a YouTube silver play button for passing 100,000 subscribers. The channel has helped us to discover, reach and create new audiences of cricket lovers whilst also providing a variety of different content formats designed to satisfy a wide range of appetites and age groups.
“Our YouTube channel has helped to turn Somerset County Cricket Club into a genuinely global brand and, with people consuming their entertainment experiences in a very different way to how they were doing so 18 months ago, I look forward to seeing how that develops over the next few years.”
