Gloucestershire County Cricket Club is continuing its partnership with local law firm Barcan+Kirby for its 2022 season. Barcan+Kirby became sponsors of Gloucestershire County Cricket Club (GCCC) in 2020 as their 150th-anniversary sponsor and the relationship has continued to grow. Barcan+Kirby have offices across Bristol and South Gloucestershire, including one on Gloucester Road near the Club’s Seat Unique Stadium.

As well as sponsorship, the firm now advises the Club on legal matters such as contracts, sponsorship agreements and corporate governance. Earlier this year, one of Barcan+Kirby’s solicitors provided the Club with a talk regarding employment law and the firm has plans to continue sharing their extensive knowledge with GCCC in the future.

GCCC provide Barcan+Kirby with opportunities for corporate hospitality, networking and sponsor events. They also benefit from the use of the Club’s facilities for both social events and business meetings and their branded banners proudly adorn the Mount Stand, the largest stand in the Seat Unique Stadium.

Bill Willcocks, the Managing Partner at Barcan+Kirby, said:

We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Gloucestershire County Cricket Club. This partnership brings together two organisations that put people at the heart of all that they do. We look forward to an exciting year of events and are proud to work alongside GCCC to champion our local community.

 Gloucestershire Cricket’s Chief Executive, Will Brown, commented:

“Gloucestershire Cricket is a proud supporter of local businesses and we’re thrilled to have Barcan+Kirby with us for another year as a key partner in our infrastructure. The Mound Stand continues to look fantastic with the addition of Barcan+Kirby branding.”
