Rothesay has announced a multi-year partnership with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to become an official partner of England Cricket.

The insurer's long-term partnership will start with the first men's test match between England and the West Indies on Wednesday 10 July at Lord's. The fixture is set to be a historic occasion with interest from every corner of the cricketing world as Jimmy Anderson says farewell to the international game.

As an official partner of England Cricket, Rothesay branding will feature at every England men's and women's home test, including the 2027 men's and women's Ashes test matches, and at England women's home matches across all formats.

Throughout the duration of the partnership, Rothesay will engage its policyholders, employees, and fans of the game through a range of activities to bring them closer to the action – including supporting community cricket across England and Wales.

Rothesay branding will also feature at England women's home matches, across all formats.

ECB chief commercial officer Tony Singh said: "We are delighted to welcome Rothesay as our new title partner for test match cricket in England and Wales. With record viewing and attendance figures last year, test cricket has never been more popular, and I am thrilled that Rothesay have endorsed our vision for growing the game across all formats. I look forward to seeing their brand proudly displayed at a series of iconic matches over the next few years, including Jimmy Anderson's final test next week, the Ashes in 2027 and the first ever England women's test match to be held at Lord's."

Rothesay chief executive Tom Pearce said: "We are very excited to partner with the ECB and to become title sponsor of test match cricket. Rothesay is purpose-built to provide security for UK pensioners, we are delighted that we can also help to secure the future of test cricket aiming to inspire all generations by making cricket a game for everyone."
