More of the biggest games in world cricket are coming to Birmingham in 2022 with the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) today announcing seven Major Match days for Edgbaston Stadium next summer.
Edgbaston will host Joe Root’s England men side for an LV= Insurance Test Match against South Africa from Thursday 25 to Monday 29 August and a mouth-watering Royal London International (ODI) versus India on Saturday 9 July.
The venue will also host the biggest day in the county cricket calendar, with Vitality Blast Finals Day returning to Edgbaston for the 14th time on Saturday 16 July.
The Ballot is now open for all Major Match days at edgbaston.com and is once again the best chance to get tickets for the biggest games at Edgbaston in 2022, or you can guarantee your seat with Membership with the Priority Club only £25.
“Edgbaston and Birmingham are right at the heart of the global sporting calendar next summer,” said Chief Executive, Stuart Cain.
“Our schedule of Major Match cricket in 2022 is amongst the best that we have ever hosted, with a men’s Test match, Finals Day and an ODI that sees the top two teams in the world rankings do battle and will attract a huge global TV audience.
“We’re also proud to play our part in hosting the inaugural women’s T20 tournament in Birmingham 2022, which will be a fantastic opportunity to build on this year’s success of The Hundred, which has transformed women’s cricket and attracted record crowds at Edgbaston for our Birmingham Phoenix games.”
