Old Trafford Cricket Ground is the home of Manchester Cricket Club as well as Lancashire County Cricket Club. It opened way back in 1857 and is the second oldest test match venue in England after Lord's. Over its 150 years, it has been the venue for some major matches and iconic moments in cricket, including World Cup semi-finals and the legendary 'Ball of the Century' bowled by Shane Warne in 1993. It is also occasionally used for major music concerts.
Test match tickets can be hard to come by, but it is relatively straightforward to order tickets for Lancashire County Cricket matches via the website. General admission tickets for County Cricket games are £15, while one-day matches in the Royal London 50 Over Cup start at £12. The Friday night T20 games have been incredibly popular, and tickets start at £10 if bought in advance.
One of the newest developments at Old Trafford Cricket Ground is The Point, a 1,000-seater stand that also houses a conference centre. It is open all year round for trade fairs, exhibitions, and other corporate events. The Kukri Store at the ground sells Lancashire County Cricket Club merchandise and is open Monday to Friday from 10 am to 6 pm, and on Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm.
