Foxes 50 Business Club
Leicestershire County Cricket Club launched the Foxes 50 business club in January 2020 which will look to take to take a modern approach to commercial engagement between the club and companies throughout Leicestershire.
The Fischer County Ground is a unique space where Leicestershire CCC will use cricket as the conduit for businesses and individuals to meet and engage with eachother to create a connected business and community hub in the heart of the city.
With various events such as concerts, open-air cinema screenings and fireworks nights taking place amongst the busy cricket season, including Women's Internationals and Tourist fixtures, the Foxes 50 is not just a club for cricket-lovers, it is a networking club open to like-minded businessmen and women.
Packages within the Foxes 50 are not created by the club based on what they can offer, but are bespoke to every individual or business which cater to their needs and budget.

Your package can also be made up of a range of Matchday Hospitality options;
Tracey Branson, Commercial Manager at Leicestershire CCC said: "What we want to do at Leicestershire is to become self-funding and not be so heavily reliant upon the ECB. We think that there is a niche in the market amongst the large amount of networking business club's out there.
"We wanted to be a little bit different and we can offer each member access to our players, branding around the ground and on social media - it is something a bit different and it is about fun - that is the emphasis on it, as well as for each member to give a little bit back to each other."
Kevin Walpole, Commercial Director of Uptonsteel, one of the founding members of the Foxes 50, commented: “Our business is sports mad and we’re proud to support the players through our front shirt sponsorship.
"Uptonsteel received some incredible exposure from the record-breaking Ackermann game last year so we really want to see the club succeed this season and we’re behind them all the way.”
