Experience a Festival of Cricket at Emirates Old Trafford this summer!

The T20 season is set to begin this Friday evening as Lancashire Lightning take on Roses rivals Yorkshire Vikings (6.30pm) at Emirates Old Trafford in front of a capacity crowd for the first time since 2019.

Lancashire Lightning then take on Worcestershire Rapids on Sunday 29 May (2.30pm) and there will be plenty of fun and activities for everyone as Emirates Old Trafford hosts a festival of cricket with a new and improved fan village inside the ground with activities to keep all ages entertained away from the on-field action!

There will be live entertainment throughout the afternoon, with gates opening at 1pm, including interactive games and a family area, as well as great selection of food and drink for all ages.


Tickets start from just £1 for kids and £5 for adults with some of the biggest names in world cricket set to take centre stage at Emirates Old Trafford this summer, including the England duo of Liam Livingstone and Matt Parkinson, as well T20 star Tim David, who has recently been playing in the IPL.

During the June half-term week, Lancashire Lightning and Thunder will share the stage during two doubleheaders with our professional women’s team, Thunder, playing in the headline slot of 7pm for the first time on Wednesday 1 June. 48 hours later, on Jubilee Weekend, the roles will be reversed when Thunder host Loughborough Lightning at 2.30pm before Lancashire Lightning take on Northants Steelbacks under the lights on Friday 3 June.

Lancashire and England spinner, Matt Parkinson said: “We are a team that thrives on having the crowd there. The crowd can swing tight matches in our favour and has a massive impact on us as a team, more so than most counties.

“The group of players we have got thrive on big atmospheres and we have a quite a lot of showmen in the side who look to put on those performances for the fans.

“The atmosphere at Emirates Old Trafford is amazing and to know that we are finally back to capacity crowds this summer is a great feeling."

Later in the summer, Emirates Old Trafford will host The Hundred competition with the Manchester Originals playing four games in August. Meanwhile Emirates Old Trafford, the home of Lancashire Cricket, will also be hosting three England Internationals with the visits of South Africa for a Test Match and One-Day International, as well as ODI against India.
