Sports stars have come together as a rallying cry to get behind England Women as Edgbaston rewrite #HERstory at the Women’s Ashes at this summer.

Captain Heather Knight appears alongside teammates Nat Sciver-Brunt, Sophie Ecclestone, Issy Wong and Alice Capsey, plus men’s internationals Moeen Ali and Mark Wood, in a campaign urging cricket fans to help create Fortress Edgbaston when the two sides meet on Saturday 1 July in the first IT20 of the Ashes series.

Anticipation is building with over 15,500 tickets already sold for the historic encounter which means the two sides are set to play in front of a record crowd for a women’s cricket match in the UK outside of ICC world events.

Aston Villa internationals Alisha Lehmann and Hannah Hampton, plus GB Hockey internationals Tess Howard and Darcy Bourne and BBC Sport commentator Melissa Story have also added their voice to the #HERstory campaign.

Over 13,000 sold for Women’s IT20 vs Pakistan

Pakistan Women will be in Birmingham on Saturday 11 May 2024 and over 13,000 tickets have already been sold.

With the Men’s IT20 already sold out, this is your last chance to see Pakistan at Edgbaston next summer and tickets are available from only £17, with under 16s £5.
