After a record year in 2023, The Hundred will return to Manchester in 2024, delivering a month of world-class cricket and blockbuster entertainment for all the family.
Emirates Old Trafford will host its first game on Thursday 25 July, with both the Manchester Originals men’s and women’s teams kicking off their competition against Welsh Fire.
The Originals will then be back at home for the first of three double-headers on Monday 29 July, taking on Trent Rockets, before their final two matchdays, on Tuesday 6 August against Oval Invincibles and Sunday 11 August against Northern Superchargers.
The competition itself will start on Tuesday 23 July, with Birmingham Phoenix heading to South London to play Oval Invincibles in the first of 34 matchdays across 26 days of compelling sport at the height of summer.
A record 580,000 fans were in venues across The Hundred in 2023, including over 300,000 in the women’s competition. The Hundred’s blend of high-quality sport and entertainment saw 41% of all tickets sold to families, 23% to juniors and 30% to women.
Alongside world-class cricket, thanks to The Hundred’s ongoing partnership with BBC Music Introducing, fans were treated to memorable music performances from a diverse line-up of artists and DJs including headliners Rudimental, the Lottery Winners, DYLAN and Prima Queen.
Supporters who have been season ticket holders in any of the three years of The Hundred or who bought a ticket in 2023 will be able to buy a season ticket from today. From March 5-19 there will be an exclusive window open to fans who have previously bought tickets to The Hundred. The priority sale window is open from April 9-23, open to all fans who sign up in advance at thehundred.com. The general sale period begins from April 25.

The Hundred Eliminator, where second- and third-placed teams compete for a place in The Hundred Final, is confirmed for Saturday 17 August at The Kia Oval. The Hundred Final will take place on Sunday 18 August at Lord’s.
Sophie Ecclestone, the world’s number one bowler and Manchester Originals star, said: “The Manchester Originals fans create an amazing atmosphere at Emirates Old Trafford. I am really excited to get playing in front of them again and to play in The Hundred this summer. The competition went from strength to strength in 2023. We will be going all out to win it this year.”
Manchester Originals and England Men's captain Jos Buttler said: “I really enjoy playing in The Hundred and I’m looking forward to getting going again in this year’s tournament. I think the competition had a really strong year last year, and I’m sure we’ll see that repeated this summer. From a team perspective we will be looking to go one better than the last couple of years and get our hands on the trophy.”
The Hundred Draft, powered by Sage, will be back across both the men’s and the women’s competitions ahead of the 2024 summer as the 16 teams prepare their bids for The Hundred title.
All games will again be live on Sky Sports and BBC broadcast and digital channels throughout the competition.
