Surrey County Cricket Club

 

JM Finn have been sponsors of Surrey County Cricket Club for 14 years – a partnership that is based on shared values of heritage, quality and performance.

Drawn by its historic and iconic venue, the member-owned club offers a great opportunity to place our brand alongside one of English cricket’s leading and forward looking clubs and reach an ever-increasing and engaged audience.

To the modern cricket fan, Surrey CCC’s home, the Kia Oval, is most remembered for the finale of the 2005 Ashes – one of the greatest series ever played.  Today, the ground is home to all formats of club and international cricket. In 2018 the Oval saw England wrap up the series victory versus India, Alastair Cook’s final innings as a test player and witnessed Surrey win the Specsavers County Championship.

Club history

 

The Club was formed in 1845 and is one of the most historic sports clubs in the United Kingdom.  Away from cricket, some say The Oval is where English team sport was founded. In 1870 the ground hosted the first ever International football match in England – between England and Scotland – and two years later, in 1872, hosted the first ever FA Cup Final between Wanderers and Engineers, won 1-0 by the Wanderers. The same year, 1872, also saw the ground also host the first ever Rugby Union fixture to be played in England, between England and Scotland.
