Cricket Ireland has launched its 2015 membership packages at the perfect time for Irish cricket fans to get right behind the national team as they embark on a potentially historic season ahead.

Ireland participate in their third consecutive ICC Cricket World Cup next February and March, before playing home One-Day Internationals against England and Australia. In addition, they are co-hosting the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifiers in July.

The 149 euros membership package offers adults free admission to all home Ireland Internationals next season and access to the members’ section inside the ground, while the cubs package for juniors is priced at 29 euros.

The packages offer fans both young and old exclusive 20 per cent discounts on O’Neills merchandise and Cricket Ireland personalised gifts; as well as a copy of the Cricket Ireland Annual and free subscription to the renowned All Out Cricket magazine.

AOC is the biggest cricket magazine in the UK and Ireland, which is always packed full of the latest features from the world of cricket.

Ireland international John Mooney spoke of his admiration for the Irish cricket fans and called on people to get their season tickets for 2015.

“I think everyone in the squad loves playing in front of a big Irish crowd here at home and it certainly gives us that extra edge for all our matches.

“The passion and support for the team at major internationals is nothing short of exceptional and I’ve no doubt the Irish cricket fans are some of the very best in the whole world.

“There’s no better place to be at the games than in the midst of the members section with equally passionate and knowledgeable supporters.”

Commenting on the launch of the 2015 membership packages David Gash, marketing and digital media manager for Cricket Ireland said: “Next year promises to be the most exciting year ever for Irish cricket fans.

“Fixtures have already been confirmed against neighbours England and current number one ranked ODI side Australia on top the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifiers which take place in Derry, Belfast and Dublin, and our comprehensive Season Ticket will guarantee you free tickets to all of these fixtures.

In addition to these packages there is a Friends of Cricket Ireland package available for those who may not be able to attend matches, but would like to be a part of the Cricket Ireland family. At 50 euros this package offers a 20 per cent discount on entry to all home internationals in 2015, along with discounts on O’Neills Cricket Ireland Merchandise and Personalised Gifts.
