The partnership also sees moneycorp become the official coin toss sponsor, a pivotal moment at the beginning of any cricket match.

moneycorp also joins Essex Cricket on their journey to increase female participation and excellence in cricket.
The Club, their partners and fans will benefit from competitive exchange rates sourced through an extensive panel of liquidity providers, 40 years of expertise and guidance in foreign exchange, free FX health checks and ongoing support from a dedicated account manager. The deal will make it easier for Essex Cricket fans to find competitive rates when exchanging currency, whether for their business international payments or for personal reasons such as sending money to friends and family abroad.
Lee McDarby, Managing Director of corporate foreign exchange and international payments at moneycorp, said:
“We’re pleased to announce our partnership with Essex Cricket. With an international presence and local expertise, we strive to put our customers’ needs at the heart of everything we do. Like Essex Cricket, with their motto of “one team, one dream”, we understand the value of community and always put our customers first, which is why we are delighted to share our expertise with a first-class Club.
“With the pandemic having put sport on hold across the UK, we’re really looking to embarking on this partnership with Essex Cricket at a time when cricket has made its long-awaited return.
“Prior to Covid-19, Essex Cricket had an incredible season in 2019, becoming double champions of the County Championship and Vitality Blast, alongside the women’s team’s determination securing them a podium spot. Now as the season picks up where it left off, we’re passionate about creating a level playing field for women in sport, and so are excited to work with such inspirational teams, being there for every match and every step of their journey.”
Greg Larkin, Commercial Sales Executive at Essex Cricket added:
“As we begin a new decade of county cricket, we’re excited to welcome moneycorp to the family of official Club Partners, demonstrating the ever-expanding international appeal of Essex Cricket. As we continue to grow commercially, this partnership allows us to reach new audiences and markets. We look forward to working together in the future.”
