Hampshire County Cricket Club - The Ageas Bowl


As part of CSP’s continuing expansion in the Stewarding and Security Services industry, Hampshire County Cricket Club (HCCC), already a long-standing client in relation to our provision of Traffic Management and Car Parking Services, has become another venue in a long line of household names to enter into a multi-year agreement with us for additional operational services.

Service summary

With varying size cricket fixtures held at HCCC during the calendar year, as well as conferences and exhibitions at the Ageas Bowl, this partnership demonstrates CSP’s ability to provide the combined services of car park and traffic operations, professional security, stewarding and hospitality staff. 

Our experienced CSP team has taken a pro-active lead role in reviewing and rationalising operations and addressing the challenges posed by the blend of ardent cricket fans and more “casual” one day event attendees. CSP has assigned Joe Frimpong as the Operations Manager at the Ageas Bowl to oversee the recruitment, training, deployment and management of our traffic management operation, and John Gilligan to manage the Security and Stewarding operation as part of the combined services model.

Such personnel include, but are not limited to:

Safety Stewarding          

Player Escort Security

Control Room Supervisor

Hospitality Stewarding    

Pitch Protection Security

Media Compound Security

Entrance Search Security

Turnstile Operatives

Radio Controller / Loggist

Response & Ejection Security

Park & Ride Stewarding

Supervisors & Management

In line with all other client sites, CSP also produced a bespoke “Operations Manual” for our activities at the Ageas Bowl with timeline tasking and associated risk assessments, method statements, job descriptions and general instructions that form the basis of our event day team briefings.
