Located 2 miles south of Manchester City Centre, adjacent to the Old Trafford tram stop, Emirates Old Trafford is the home of Lancashire County Cricket Club. Emirates Old Trafford hosts domestic and international cricket fixtures, and it is occasionally used as a music venue.
Headline acts include Oasis in 2002, Beyoncé in 2016, and The Killers are scheduled to headline in 2022. The venue contains a 4-star Hilton Hotel which offers 150 bedrooms, and 85 rooms boast sweeping views across the pitch.
Old Trafford is an iconic venue within world cricket, and memorable moments include Sachin Tendulkar’s first international test century in 1990, Shane Warne’s infamous ‘Ball of the Century’ during the 1993 Ashes Test, and a tantalising draw to the Third Ashes Test in 2005.
The ground is famous for its unpredictable weather, and we recommend that you check the weather forecast prior to attending a cricket fixture.
