The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has unveiled Travel Places as its new global corporate travel partner.

Through a deal unveiled yesterday – and struck after what Travel Places claimed was a competition tender – that firm will manage the ECB’s global team and corporate travel program.

Travel Places will manage the travel programs of the men’s and women’s senior teams, as well as those of disability sides, age-group teams, staff, and umpires.

Travel Places has previously worked across travel programs for major sporting events such as the Olympics, soccer’s FIFA World Cup and Women’s European Championships, and motor racing’s top-tier Formula 1.

Matthew Warren, joint managing director at Travel Places, has said: “Sport is not just our specialism at Travel Places, it is also our passion. We are all incredibly excited to be working with the ECB as their team and corporate travel management company and look forward to using the expertise we’ve honed over the last 45 years, working across many sporting disciplines, to support their teams and staff.”

Over the next year or so, the England men’s and women’s teams are set to travel to the Caribbean, New Zealand, Pakistan, and India.

Last month, the ECB renewed its sponsorship agreement with financial services company IG for another three years.

Under its renewal, which was brokered by international sports marketing agency CSM Sports and Entertainment, IG will continue as ECB’s official investment platform and remain the sleeve sponsor of the England men’s test, one-day international (ODI), and T20 teams until 2027.

The deal sees IG retain branding, hospitality, digital, and activation rights in return for an increased commitment to grassroots cricket.
