Leicestershire County Cricket Club (LCCC) are delighted to announce that live streaming of matches is set to continue this season.

After achieving record numbers in 2020, in which the Club had over 120,000 views, fixtures at the Uptonsteel County Ground will continue to be broadcast online. This will include all non-televised LV= County Championship, Royal London Cup and Vitality Blast fixtures.

For 2021, Leicestershire will be utilising up to three additional cameras around the ground to compliment the two currently in operation. This will include one panning action camera to follow the action plus additional fixed cameras to enhance the viewing experience.

The stream will have the following features:

  • Available to ALL Leicestershire fans
  • FREE of charge to ALL Leicestershire fans
  • Streamed via the LCCC website and social media accounts
  • Available to watch on PC, Mobile, Tablet, Games Consoles and TV through YouTube
  • Graphic overlays displaying all key information
  • Replays of wickets, 4s, 6s and further in game action
  • Pause and rewind function
  • Live BBC Commentary synced to the action on field
  • New features released throughout the season

The Club will also continue to produce live highlight clips that are posted on the Club’s Match Centre and social media platforms as the action unfolds.

LCCC Marketing Manager, Chloe Dunn said: “Following a successful 2020, we are delighted to be able to offer free live streaming again this season.

“We know that there is a huge audience for County Cricket and we are always aiming to make it as easy as possible for fans to follow the Running Foxes at the ground and from around the world.

“We are working really hard to enhance the live stream and feel that having the additional cameras in place around the ground for all formats of cricket will help capture all of the action. It’s an exciting opportunity for us to deliver an even better digital service to our fans.”

You can get a first glimpse of the live streaming service ahead of the Running Foxes LV=County Championship campaign during our three-day University match against Loughborough UCCE on Monday, March 29.
