Somerset County Cricket Club will be further improving the matchday experience for Members and supporters in 2023.
In-ear radios are commonplace at International cricket matches, but in Association with Vertu Motors, we will be bringing this to the domestic game by producing radio ear pieces. This will give people the opportunity to listen to our award-winning ball-by-ball live stream commentary from their seats in the stands and pavilions.
The commentary will be perfectly synced to compliment the on- field action, giving our Members and supporters an immersive and comprehensive live matchday experience. The radios will last all season, with only a small battery needing to be replaced on occasion.
It promises be another exciting year for Somerset’s live stream team, who this week announced that Somerset legend Vic Marks would be joining the commentary team this summer.
SCCC Head of Digital, Ben Warren is excited by this initiative: “The ball-by-ball commentary from our live stream will add an extra dimension to how our Members and supporters enjoy their cricket at the Cooper Associates County Ground,” he explained.
“We are constantly looking at ways to develop our live stream platform whilst improving and adding value to what we offer our Members and supporters.
“In-ear fan radios are utilised regularly at international cricket and in professional rugby, and we felt that this was an initiative that would be an outstanding addition to matchdays at the Cooper Associates County Ground.”
Further details of the 2023 commentary line up and how you can purchase a fan radio will be released shortly.
