J.P. Morgan has extended its sponsorship of Lord’s Cricket Ground and the iconic media center until 2016. The renewal coincides with the “Home of Cricket” bicentenary.
Based in north London and named after its founder, Thomas Lord, Lord’s Cricket Ground is owned by MCC and is the home of Middlesex County Cricket Club, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the European Cricket Council (ECC).
Sponsorships like J.P. Morgan’s allow MCC to build and enhance its ongoing cricket-related projects both around the world and in its local community. Activities range from the building of cricket pitches for schools in Afghanistan to supporting local charitable projects around Lord’s. The Club also provides financial and administrative backing of the MCC University cricket academies in England and Wales.
