Sponsor the derby as Somerset and Gloucestershire look to be the best in the West

August 11th 1879 saw the birth of something very special.

It was on that day at Clifton College that the first ever clash between Somerset and Gloucestershire began. That day has lead to over 140 years and nearly 300 matches of intense sporting rivalry which comes to a head in 2020.

After a 13 year wait, the two sides met in four-day cricket last year after Gloucestershire regained their place back in the top flight for the first time since 2005.

It was definitely worth the wait for Somerset fans as Tom Abell and his men came out on top by an impressive 314 runs.


The two sides will clash again in our opening LV= Insurance County Championship match of this season, beginning on Thursday April 15th and your company could be playing a big part as this unique rivalry is once again unleashed.

Match Sponsorship is an extremely cost-effective way to drive awareness of your business to our large and highly engaged fanbase.

It also gives you the chance to entertain your clients and reward your hardworking staff at an elite sporting event situated at the stunning Cooper Associates County Ground.
