The 2013 Champions Trophy helped Warwickshire report a small profit for the last year.

Having lost £668,000 in 2012, the county showed a profit of £4,500 at the end of last season - with turnover up £222,000 to £11.74million.

As co-hosts of the Champions Trophy - a total of five matches were held at Edgbaston including the final - Warwickshire's catering and hospitality revenues were up 22 per cent year-on-year.

Although Edgbaston was not awarded a Test match this summer, chief executive Colin Povey believes there is still a chance to build on these results through other avenues.

Povey said: "The absence of Test cricket once again in 2014 represents a further challenge before the return of an Ashes Test to Edgbaston in 2015.

"However, hosting India on two occasions and changes to the domestic twenty20 cricket schedule, featuring more Friday night games, are great opportunities that we are looking to make the most of in 2014."
