Lancashire County Cricket Club is a prestigious and successful International and County Cricket organisation with ambition and commitment to develop a World Class cricketing, entertainment and business venue. We are focused on continuing to provide the highest standards of excellence at all levels of cricket from ‘playground to Test arena’.
Founded in 1864, Lancashire has won the County Championship outright on 13 occasions, most recently in 2011 when captain Glen Chapple lifted the famous trophy on the final day of the season in Taunton.
During its long and distinguished history, Old Trafford has played host to many of the greatest players to have graced the game. Who could forget Sachin Tendulkar’s maiden Test century in 1990, Shane Warne’s ‘ball of the century’ which bamboozled Mike Gatting, Ian Botham’s destruction of the Australian bowling attack, or Jim Laker’s recording breaking feat of 19 Test match wickets in a match? In 2013, Lancashire County Cricket Club announced a record-breaking naming rights partnership with Emirates Airline which saw the famous venue become Emirates Old Trafford – a partnership which provided the finishing touches to the £45 million redevelopment.
Emirates Old Trafford hosts the renowned The Point, a 1,000 capacity conference and events space which offers capacious versatility; The Pavilion, which retains its glorious cricketing heritage whilst offering stunning modern business facilities with nine executive boxes and numerous suites, and the AJ Bell Players and Media Centre, which is offers state of the art facilities for the world’s media and players.
For Lancashire County Cricket Club in 2015, cricket is most definitely at our heart but business is on our mind.
