See the 2019 Cricket World Cup with official Ageas Bowl corporate hospitality & VIP tickets
The Ageas Bowl (also known as the Rose Bowl) is one of English Cricket’s most picturesque venues and is the home of Hampshire County Cricket Club.
Built in 2000 and designed by award-winning architects Michael Hopkins & Partners, the ground has become one of the most popular in the UK and hosted it’s first Test Match in 2011 as England faced Sri Lanka.
Initially, the Ageas Bowl was built to replace Hampshire’s previous ground which was the County Ground in Southampton. Their first match played at the Ageas Bowl was in May 2001 and was against Worcestershire. Hampshire went on to achieve their first win at the grounds, winning by 124 runs.
Since its opening, the Ageas Bowl has hosted many international cricket fixtures including One Day Internationals, various test matches and even the 2004 Champions Trophy. It hosted England’s first Twenty20 international against Australia in 2005, alongside many thrilling day/night fixtures against Australia and Pakistan in 2010. In 2011, the ground became England’s tenth Test venue, when they faced Sri Lanka in mid-June.
In 2008, the Ageas Bowl was redeveloped for £24 million which allowed more stands to be built to increase overall capacity. As a result of this, the grounds were able to host more test cricket fixtures. Additionally, a fabulous four star Hilton hotel was also integrated when the grounds opened in 2015.
Without a doubt, the Ageas Bowl is a renowned cricket ground and distinct in nature. It is shaped like a circular amphitheatre, and possesses a grand three storey pavilion that has a canopied roof – a great piece of architecture.
We are delighted to offer official corporate hospitality packages for the 2019 Cricket World Cup fixtures at this grounds.
