Warwickshire were the major winners at the 2014 ECB Business of Cricket Awards, taking home three awards while Lancashire, MCC, Nottinghamshire, Surrey and Worcestershire were also winners.

The Edgbaston county achieved a 30 per cent increase in ticket sales and a record-breaking attendance at NatWest T20 Blast finals day.

Those two achievements won them the County Marketing Award, the Major Match Marketing Award and they also won their Community Engagement Award for their work done in the community this season.

MCC won the Innovation Award and Major Match Customer Experience Award for their plans for the future development of Lord's and their celebration of the club's 200th anniversary this year.

"These awards once again demonstrate the outstanding work our First Class counties did off-the-field last season to raise the profile of our domestic game and help attract a record number of spectators to the NatWest T20 Blast competition," ECB Chief Operating Officer Gordon Hollins said.

"As always, our judging panel were given the unenviable task of picking the winners from an outstanding pool of nominees.

"We thank them for their efforts and warmly congratulate all our winners whose hard work and creativity helped make 2014 such a memorable season for all concerned."
