Royal Mail to celebrate England Cricket’s historic World Cup win

Posted: 16 July 2019

Royal Mail will celebrate the England Cricket team’s historic victory through special stamps and white and gold postboxes.

Representing both England and Wales, this is the first time that the England Men’s and Women’s teams have held both the ICC Cricket World Cup winners’ titles simultaneously. This will be a unique and highly visible way to celebrate the huge achievement of both teams.

Special Edition Postboxes

Royal Mail will roll out 15 special edition postboxes at each ground used in the tournament to mark the historic achievement of both England teams, starting with a postbox outside Lord’s Cricket Ground where both sold-out finals were held.

They will also launch special postboxes in locations of importance to the captains of both ICC Cricket World Cup winning teams, England Men’s captain Eoin Morgan and the captain of the 2017 Women’s team Heather Knight OBE.

A dedicated Royal Mail team will be on standby to transform the specially selected postboxes over the coming weeks. The postboxes will be painted white and feature stylised images of a gold cricket bat, ball and stumps.

Decorated for a three-month period, the specially selected postboxes will be complemented by a permanent gold plaque. The plaque’s inscription will celebrate England Cricket’s historic position as joint holder of both ICC Cricket World Cup titles.

Stamp of Approval

The Special Stamp issue will feature images of both squads. Presented in two Miniature Sheets, one sheet will showcase images of the England Men’s team from their 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup winning campaign while the other sheet will feature images of the England Women’s winning team from their 2017 victory.

Each sheet will include two 1st Class stamps, and two £1.60 value stamps and retail at £4.60.

The stamps will be on general sale from Royal Mail and in Post Offices throughout the UK from later in the summer. Customers can register interest online from today royalmail.com/cricket.
