Trent Bridge Handed Ashes
Tests in 2013 & 2015

Featured News | 22nd September 2011

Trent Bridge has won the right to host Ashes Tests in 2013 and 2015 after the ECB announced the venues for all unallocated matches between 2013 and 2016 as part of the Whole Game Process.

A prestigious England v India Test in 2014 and One Day Internationals against New Zealand (2013 and 2015), Sri Lanka (2016) and Pakistan (2016) will also be hosted at the Nottinghamshire venue.

The decision follows a rigorous bidding process in which venues were asked to pitch for packages of matches with criteria including community outputs, social inclusion work, operational capability and past ticket sales.

“To secure Ashes Tests matches in both the 2013 and 2015 series is a tremendous endorsement of our track record of delivery and the pledges that we made in our bid,” said Nottinghamshire Chief Executive Derek Brewer.

“International cricket has always been extremely well supported in the East Midlands and I am delighted that our members and supporters will be able to attend such high-profile matches at Trent Bridge.”

Nottinghamshire’s bid was backed by three local authorities, local MPs, Nottinghamshire Constabulary and private sector businesses and Brewer endorsed the club’s thanks to all those partners and individuals who had provided such fantastic moral support.

“This package of matches will enable us to continue to invest in our venue, our professional team and our community projects and there is a lot of work to be done to harness all of the opportunities that Ashes Tests provide,” said Brewer.

“I am really grateful to all those who have played their part in this process and pleased that they have been rewarded with cricket matches that can do so much for our venue, our community and the regional economy. It has been a real team effort.”
