Lancashire County Cricket Club

Optimum Procurement Group is proud to be Lancashire County Cricket Club's procurement partner.

Lancashire County Cricket Club
In November 2011, we announced a three-year contract designed to underpin the Club’s commercial activities as they embarked on the most significant phase in their history.

The agreement – the first of its kind in English cricket – sees us working closely together, relying on our procurement expertise to reduce the Club's costs, improve sourcing efficiency and update underlying internal processes.

Welcoming the ground-breaking deal, Lee Morgan, Finance and Operations
Director of Lancashire CCC said: “This is a very significant partnership for
Lancashire at a momentous period in the Club’s commercial development.

Mike Jones, Group MD, Optimum Procurement with Saj Mahmood, LCCC“By investing in new infrastructure to help secure the future prosperity of the Club we are bucking the trend in a very challenging economic climate.  Optimum will help us ensure that we get the very best value and service from our suppliers and this is a crucial deliverable as we transform Old Trafford into a premier cricketing venue fit to host an Ashes Test in 2013.”

Over the initial three year period, LCCC are expecting that savings and efficiencies will total a very significant sum.  Mike Jones, Group Managing Director of Optimum, believes the deal represents a blueprint for others to follow.

He said: “As one of the UK’s leading procurement service providers and specialists in our field, we are delighted to be teaming up with the best team in English cricket, but it’s especially pleasing as we’re a North-West based company supporting Lancashire CCC.
