The England and Wales cricket Board (ECB) has prioritised the importance of spectator safety, ahead of hosting three international events over the next three years.

The body has signed a four-year deal with the SGSA, which will carry out safety audits, review current procedures and provide training for chief executives, safety officers and ground management at cricket stadiums across England and Wales.

Spectator safety is one of the key priorities in the ECB’s recently-published Cricket Unleashed strategy.

Grounds across the country will host matches for the ICC Champions Trophy and Women’s World Cup in 2017, and the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2019.

Tom Harrison, ECB chief executive, said the SGSA was the “world’s leading authority” on spectator safety.

“We want fans to feel safe and secure at all times – and gain maximum enjoyment from watching cricket,” he added.

“Improving safety and security is an important part of our broader plans to enhance spectators’ match-day experience and attract more people to the sport.”

Karen Eyre-White, chief executive of the SGSA, added: “The ECB is a proactive governing body that understands the importance of taking a holistic approach to safety and values what good safety management practices can deliver for spectators.”
