Old Trafford Cricket Ground began life in 1857 as the home of Manchester Cricket Club and then Lancashire Country Cricket Club since 1864. Thanks to a sponsorship deal in 2013 these impressive grounds are now known as Emirates Old Trafford.
Old Trafford had a rocky start early in its life with poor access along a perilous train track and the ground being situated out in the then countryside limiting attendance. It wasn’t until 1875 that significant numbers caused substantial development.
In 1884, Old Trafford became the second English ground to stage Test cricket, the first of course, was The Oval. This marked a shift in the grounds fortunes and although various struggles including major damage during world war II could have knocked it down for good the iconic pitch remains.
Emirates Old Trafford has won many awards and has a reputation for delivering one-of-a-kind events, inspirational conferences and much more, and also boasts an on-site hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn, which provides fantastic views over the pitch.
The grounds are used heavily during the summer months, hosting several test matches and one-day internationals, however, in recent years Old Trafford has also held large-scale concerts for the likes of Beyoncé, Kings of Leon and Foo Fighters to name a few.
