Essex County Cricket Club has renewed its shirt sponsorship deal with D&B Scaffolding and signed a new partnership with facilities management company Cloudfm.

Cloudfm, meanwhile, has signed a new five-year deal with Essex, adding shirt sponsorship rights to its agreement with the club. Cloudfm’s logo will appear on the collar and on the back of the shirt.

Cloudfm also holds naming rights to Essex’s home stadium, the Cloudfm County Ground.

Essex’s new shirt will be worn by the squad for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
