Somerset County Cricket Club (SCCC) have today signed an agreement that will see ITEC become the Club’s Official Technology Partner.

The new three-year partnership will see prominent ITEC branding appear within the Cooper Associates County Ground, and the two organisations will be working together to provide ground-wide WiFi for spectators to help improve the matchday experience.

Suzanne Roper, SCCC Commercial Sales Director, Suzanne Roper said: “As a business we really like what ITEC are all about. They are a national company with a number of locally based offices and they also take their corporate social responsibility very seriously.

“Technology is constantly evolving, and it is vital for us to be able to adapt to the changing landscape of the business world. This partnership is the first of its kind for the Club and we are all very excited about the benefits that this will bring to Somerset County Cricket Club, ITEC and more importantly our members and supporters.”

Nick Orme, ITEC CEO, said: “We have enjoyed a long relationship with Somerset County Cricket Club as the centrepiece of our corporate hospitality and promotional activities as we’ve grown our business across the South West and beyond. To be appointed as their Official Technology Partner is a great privilege and we are excited to now be playing a central part in all the improvements they have planned over the coming years.”
