Record corporate hopitality sales for third test at Edgbaston

Keith Prowse, Compass Group‘s hospitality specialist, has announced record sales figures for corporate hospitality in the run-up to the third Npower Test match between England and India at Edgbaston.

More packages for the Friday of the match, which takes place from Wednesday 14 to Sunday 14 August, have been sold than for the third day of any fixture in the history of the ground.

High demand for places in the new £32m Pavilion Stand, which opens in July, has been credited for the increased sales for this fixture, coupled with the success of the England team in the winter's Ashes series which has boosted interest in the sport.

Keith Prowse's Edgbaston sales team has also said that opponents India have been a particular draw for bookers from Birmingham's multicultural business community and the touring side will include number one Test batsman Sachin Tendulkar, who is likely to be playing for the last time on English soil.

The upgrade at the Midlands' international cricket ground includes the Jaguar Club, the 1882 Club, Superboxes and the Edgbaston Suite, helping to increase the overall capacity at Edgbaston to 25,000.

These are in addition to the existing areas of the Aylesford Private Boxes, Marston's Suite, Executive Club and Lower Wyatt Suite across the ground in the Raglan/Priory Stand and RES Wyatt Stand.
