Edgbaston Awarded 31-Day Programme of Major Match Cricket 2020

Lancashire Cricket Club will host international 2023 Ashes fixtures

The Emirates Old Trafford has secured a package of global fixtures having being selected as host venue for an Ashes Test in 2023 and the new eight-team T20 competition which starts in 2020. With Trent Bridge becoming the home of the 50-over final and Edgbaston the home of T20 finals day, there is a move to a pleasing consistency and symmetry about the list.

London venues Lord's and The Oval, Old Trafford (Manchester), Headingley (Leeds), Edgbaston (Birmingham), Trent Bridge (Nottingham), Sophia Gardens (Cardiff) and the Ageas Bowl (Southampton) have all been selected as host grounds.

Neil Snowball, Chief Executive of Warwickshire CCC, said: "This award of high profile matches is excellent news for everyone connected with Edgbaston Stadium and it provides us with a solid platform on which we can build a strong and sustainable financial future for Warwickshire County Cricket Club".

The eight venues that will stage matches in the new English domestic Twenty20 competition to run from 2020 have been confirmed.

In a raft of announcements detailing England's domestic and worldwide schedule between 2020 and 2024, plans for the new T20 competition were also revealed.

Again, both London grounds appear sure to be staging matches alongside the four long-established global venues in major cities - with the Ageas Bowl and Cardiff's Sophia Gardens also expected to be named.

Awarding global cricket to revenue-hungry grounds is a thankless task.

"To host the Ashes in 2023, following on from 2019, is one of the "moments" of cricket both from a playing, watching and hosting perspective, and will enable our vision of re-engaging our core cricket audiences across over 300 clubs in Lancashire, as well as every school in the North West, and attracting new fans through the new T20 tournament".
