Trent Bridge Development
To confirm Trent Bridge’s desire to continue as a successful Test Match venue, Notts have spent a considerable amount of money on the ground over recent years.
It started with the creation of the William Clarke Stand in 1990, and the Hound Road Stand in 1993.
The £7.2 million Trent Bridge Cricket Centre was opened to huge acclaim by former Notts hero Sir Garfield Sobers in 1998 on the eve of the England v South Africa Test. Still affectionately known as the Radcliffe Road Stand, the multi-purpose complex contains many outside facilities for visitors to use and enjoy, as well as offering world-class views of the action on the pitch.
The building work continued in 2002, with the £1.9 million Fox Road stand, launched by Sir Ian Botham at the One-day International between England and Sri Lanka. It features a state of the art ‘aircraft wing’ roof.
Then in 2008 Prince Philip opened a replacement for the Parr Stand and West Wing.
As well as hosting Hampshire CCC, the ground has also been home to a number of England internationals. ODIs have been held at the ground since 2003, and international test matches since 2011. It has also hosted a number of Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) since 2005 – most notably England’s first T20 international, where they beat Australia by 100 runs.
