How our Yorkies became Team Awesome!
Last month, our match day support team, the Yorkies were awarded with the Business of Cricket Award’s ‘Team Awesome’ title, recognising the hard work that each of our volunteers give towards improving the spectator experience at Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s home games.
“We have had the Yorkies team for five years who are our matchday support team. They help out with our matchday operations, including tickets, giving freebies away and adding to our customer experience.
“Over the past few years, we have worked on how we can professionalise the programme and make sure that the volunteers get a really positive experience from it as well as the spectators. I think that this has contributed to us winning the award.
“I’d like to thank all of the Yorkies that volunteered in 2019. It was an extraordinarily busy season and their help made a significant impact on our customer experience. The Club view the Yorkies as an essential part of the matchday team, and I hope that this award emphasises the importance of them to Yorkshire Cricket.” – Beth Cook, YCF Health and Wellbeing Manager
What do our Yorkies do?
Our Yorkies provide an amazing match day experience to spectators by offering help and assisting on services within and outside of the grounds.
Why do we have a match day volunteer programme?
