Cricket World – One of eight host venues for the ECB’s new T20 competition from 2020.
- Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club Chief Executive Lisa Pursehouse is “absolutely delighted” that Trent Bridge has secured its future as a Test match venue until at least 2024 following the ECB’s announcement of its host venues for High Profile Matches.
- In domestic cricket, Trent Bridge has won the right to host a team in the new T20 competition, which starts in 2020, along with the prestigious 50-over one-day final which Notts Outlaws won in 2017 at Lord’s.
- Director of Cricket Newell believes a centrally-located venue with a capacity of just over 17,000 will benefit the competition, saying: “I think Trent Bridge will be a great venue for a national final.
- Trent Bridge is one of eight venues selected to stage the new city-based T20 competition along with The Kia Oval, Lord’s, Edgbaston, The SSE Swalec Cardiff, Emirates Old Trafford the Ageas Bowl and Emerald Headingley.
- “Trent Bridge has become an outstanding domestic venue for T20 cricket – you only have to look at the size of the crowds and the excitement it brings to the city,” said Pursehouse.
