Lancashire Cricket

Emirates Old Trafford is also home to Lancashire Cricket, a world-class international sporting stadium, playing host to some of cricket’s most iconic moments since 1857 and also hosting world-famous artists.

Founded in 1864 as a successor to Manchester Cricket Club, Lancashire have played at Old Trafford since then and, in 1865, played their inaugural first-class match, beating Middlesex at Old Trafford.

An integral part of the North West sporting scene, the Club is synonymous with great triumphs, famous names, and a will to succeed. Steeped in tradition, nostalgia, and prowess, Lancashire Cricket has earned itself a reputation and status that businesses and individuals wish to be associated with.
