Discover More About Edgbaston Cricket Ground
The grounds at Edgbaston are often favourites for swing bowlers due to the grass and moisture in the air, which can be problematic for other international teams but provides great thrills and excitement for all spectating. The atmosphere at Edgbaston is known to be the most hostile in England for any visiting team – which is great for lifting the spirits of England’s players and seems to be a firm favourite for our 2019 World Cup stars. The ground is home to Warwickshire County Cricket Club and is also a prime venue for Test Matches and One Day Internationals.
Visiting cricket fans may also enjoy the indoor cricket centre, onsite museum which displays the club’s collection of memorabilia, and visitor centre. The visitor centre opened in 2011 and charts the history of Warwickshire Country Cricket Club and all the test matches played at Edgbaston. They also have an official charity – The Edgbaston Foundation which aims to use cricket as a unifier and ensure everyone feels they belong to a diverse community.
Now, we look forward to yearly cricket fixtures that are both exciting and exhilarating as we see teams from all over the world compete against each other for coveted titles. In 2019, Edgbaston hosted the Cricket World Cup, including the Semi-Final match and the first Ashes test.
Edgbaston Cricket Ground Redevelopments
Edgbaston’s primary aim is to become – or at least be a worthy contender in being – one of the best Cricket businesses in the world. The record-breaking Ashes Test match in 2015, which saw England win by 8 wickets significantly helped Edgbaston achiever higher status by putting them on the map for cricket and strengthening links between themselves and visiting teams. They have focused their efforts on five core objectives: Cricket, Community, Customers & Supporters, Venues and People – and hope to produce results that will create innovative change and deliver sustained excellence.
Enjoy the very best hospitality at Edgbaston Cricket Ground with our 2019 Cricket World Cup and Ashes VIP tickets and packages. Some important fixtures during the world cup will be hosted at the ground and we can’t wait. See England take on Australia in the Ashes Test Series and India in the World Cup Semi-Finals.
