Find out everything you need to know ahead of your trip to Emirates Old Trafford.

Lancashire Cricket is looking forward to welcoming Members back to Emirates Old Trafford this weekend for Lancashire’s Specsavers County Championship match against Sussex. It has been a busy few weeks here at the venue with six ICC Cricket World Cup fixtures being hosted. The ground was transformed into a Tournament host venue and work is underway to return it back ready of the continuation of what promises to be a fantastic domestic season of cricket.

With the extra reserve day for the Semi-Final, there may be a few areas of the ground that you’ll see some ICC Cricket World Cup branding, or a few items in different places to normal. The team here at Lancashire Cricket Club has worked tirelessly over the last few days to get everything ready for the Championship fixture this weekend.

For instance, you may note that some of the framed pictures in the Members’ Long Room have not been returned to their normal places. Over the course of the next week or so, there will be some painting and decorating carried out in some areas, and any pictures that aren’t up for the weekend, will be put back up after the maintenance work has been completed.
