Edinburgh Accies are one of Scotland’s oldest and leading cricket teams. Founded in 1855, Edinburgh Accies currently field 2 teams; the 1st XI will play in East of Scotland Cricket Association (ESCA) Division 1 in 2014, while the 2nd XI will play in Division 5 of the ESCA. We also have a thriving junior section and currently run training sessions throughout the winter and summer. With a membership exceeding 150 people across the age groups, Edinburgh Accies are definitely a club on the up.
With an estimated 12,000 active cricketers of all ages in Scotland and with popularity rising due to the success of the Twenty20 game, cricket has a higher sporting profile than ever before. As a leading club, we’re naturally keen to attract commercial partners to share in our success and to help us fund ambitious projects vital to the future development of the club and our young players.
By playing in the ESCA, Edinburgh Accies will also draw significant press coverage, in both printed and online media. Wherever possible, we will ensure that this coverage makes mention of key sponsors and commercial partners. There are a number of opportunities available at the club including team sponsors, match sponsorship and website advertising. The corporate logo of all club sponsors will feature prominently on the club website which currently attracts 1000 hit a month with significant browsing time. The club utilises social media to the full and has over 500 followers on ‘Twitter’ from all over the UK and uses ‘Facebook’ to promote the Accies brand across the world.

In 2013 the function took places at Edinburgh Accies Rugby Club, with £200 being donated to Cricket for Change. The charity aims to use cricket to transform the lives of disadvantaged young people.
