We’re delighted to share with you that we have been appointed as Official Hospitality Agents of Emirates Old Trafford, showcasing some of the best cricket matches, concerts and major events in Manchester. The Emirates Old Trafford will now join the ICON portfolio, our collection of world class official hospitality that includes Lord’s and The Kia Oval, as well as at the best venues in the UK and around the world.
Alongside the Manchester Originals in the Hundred, Emirates Old Trafford will host three crucial England matches, which will showcase some of the best England and international players around. Historically the wicket is the quickest in Britain, conjuring up plenty of action and drama in all formats of the game. England legend James Anderson, who has a stadium end named after him, has been playing for Lancashire for over 20 years and is hero in the area.
Firstly, there will be two England international ODIs in close proximity, smack bang in the heart of the British summer. On Sunday 17 July, India will be the visitors to Old Trafford, with the Bharat Army hoping to continue their good form against England in this format, having won a three match series 2-1 in India. Expect huge crowds and support for both nations in this final match of three, which could will be a crucial decider on the day.
England, the current ODI World Champions will then play South Africa on Friday 22 July, as the Emirates Old Trafford hosts two matches in quick succession. South Africa are 5th in the current world standings, just a place behind India in 4th so expect fireworks in this ODI match as well. With another World Cup in 2023, these ODI matches are extremely important for selectors and all eyes will be on the performances of England and captain Eoin Morgan.
South Africa will be in England most of the summer playing cricket, none bigger than an August bank holiday test match at Emirates Old Trafford, the second of a three match series. England are desperately trying to recapture some form in the purest form of the game and Joe Root and his team are under serious pressure to deliver. Expect a England line-up determined to put in a strong performance against South Africa and their new test captain Dean Elgar.
