Procurement, Wi-Fi, Live Music & Loyalty

Hugh Morris, Chief Executive of Glamorgan CCC, said:

“We know that if we want to grow our business we need to put our supporters at the heart of everything we do,” said Hugh Morris, “so we’re delighted to partner with Jockey Club Services and Rewards4Cricket to launch the Glamorgan Cricket Rewards loyalty programme. This is a proven loyalty scheme that has generated success stories in other sports and we’re delighted it will help all our supporters receive benefits in return for backing the team.”

David Mann, CEO of Hampshire Cricket, said:

“The Hampshire Cricket Rewards programme is going to become a focus of our marketing and CRM programme. We are excited to be bringing the platform into cricket and believe this will be a great benefit for all cricket supporters in Hampshire.”

David Harker, CEO of Durham County Cricket Club, said:

“We know the importance of loyalty in sport. Cricket relies on fans returning as often as possible to watch all formats of the game. We have been very impressed with the results from the Rewards4Racing programme and are delighted that we are able to pioneer a similar programme in cricket.”

Shaun Harvey, Chief Executive of The Football League, said:

“With 72 clubs across England and Wales, The Football League has considerable buying power when clubs work together. We’re delighted to be partnering with Jockey Club Services to ensure that by joining forces, clubs in The Football League can get the very best prices for all the day-to-day essentials that any business needs.”

Daniel Gidney, Chief Executive of Lancashire CCC, said:

“The Jockey Club’s Racecourse Bond last year inspired us to launch our own. Before doing so we spoke to The Jockey Club directly and they were very happy to share some great insights and experiences. We factored this into planning our Cricket Bond, which is now in the market and will help us to raise capital to invest in development at Emirates Old Trafford.”

Finance & Accounting

Sara Sutcliffe, CEO of Table Tennis England, said:

“We have been really impressed with the professional approach of the Jockey Club Services team in offering a highly-effective finance solution for Governing Bodies. I’m confident their expertise and investments in transactional support and reporting are going to be of great benefit for Table Tennis England as we grow over the next few years.”

Georgina Usher, CEO of British Fencing, said:

 “We have seen a number of other NGB’s outsource various business services to Jockey Club Services and the feedback has been exceptionally positive. Over the last few months British Fencing has gone through a substantial change and in order to remain competitive and do as professional job as possible, we have had to embrace change within the organisation. We clearly see JCS as a partner who will not only deliver a professional service across all financial elements of our business, but as a partner who we can trust to help us on a wider basis as we aim to achieve some challenging objectives.”

Keir Worth, CEO of England Squash, said:

 “The Jockey Club Services team has already proved their depth of offering a professional approach to other sports. England Squash is now at a stage where we need to invest in our office operations to help provide the right platform to meet our ambitious growth targets. We want to focus on growing the sport and developing the game, and JCS will provide the professional services we need to realise our ambitions.”

Ticketing

Guy Lavender, CEO of Somerset County Cricket Club, said:

“With The County Ground now able to host international cricket from 2017 the volume of spectators visiting us will rise substantially. It is crucial we have a ticketing platform that is robust and provides a smooth experience for everyone looking to buy tickets for all forms of cricket played here in Somerset and our other events. We know the expertise that Jockey Club Services offers and it was not a difficult decision to want to work with them on an ongoing basis from now.”

Hugh Morris, Chief Executive of Glamorgan CCC, said:

“Jockey Club Services have been working closely with the team at The SWALEC Stadium to deliver a very successful sale of Ashes Tickets for 2015. It was critical that we sold these much sought after tickets without a hitch, which is exactly what happened. Having the support of JCS, who have extensive knowledge of mass ticket sales with huge events such as the Grand National and the Cheltenham Festival, was extremely reassuring. We are now exploring other services in addition to ticketing which will include procurement, loyalty and live music.”

Karl Smith, Finance Director, Kent CCC, said:

“The efficiencies that Jockey Club Services highlighted were far greater than I thought. They help us to save money across many facets of the Club, which is allowing us to focus more spend in other critical areas.”

Public Wi-Fi

Vivien Kyles, chief executive at Hamilton Park Racecourse, said:

“802 Event Wi-Fi has successfully delivered full, instant internet access for up to 10,000 concurrent users across the racecourse.

“We have been delighted by the company’s professional approach and the public agrees: since the Wi-Fi system has been in operation both our customers and the media have been impressed, one racing journalist even going so far as to describe it as ‘the best in any press facility in racing’.
