Edgbaston Leads The Way In Launching iPhone App

Edgbaston Stadium has broken new ground by becoming the first county cricket stadium in the UK to have its own iPhone application (app), which has been released in time for the landmark Test match it is hosting between England and India from 10th August.

The app, designed with followers of both county and Test match cricket in mind, will keep fans of the game up to date with the latest news from the ground as well as offering a behind-the-scenes look at the new development.

You can download it by accessing the App store here.

The £32 million redevelopment of the new stand, replacing the old pavilion, was opened on 25th July and opened by HRH Prince Philip, leading Edgbaston into a new era of entertainment and making it one of the leading Test and county cricket grounds in the world.

The app is packed with video content including exclusive views of the new suites and the new stand as well as interviews with Warwickshire players past and present including Dennis Amiss, Ashley Giles and Ian Bell.

There is also a section dedicated to some of the legends who have performed well at the ground, from Sir Donald Bradman to David Gower while for those new to cricket there is a ‘Starter’s Guide’.

A comprehensive guide of how to get to the ground, links to the ground’s Twitter and Facebook and the ability to order your tickets to matches at the ground make this the perfect app for England and Warwickshire fans.
