Durham County Cricket Club


Durham County Cricket Club is not only a successful cricket venue but also an established conference centre. The club has over 50 days of domestic cricket played at its picturesque Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground.

In 2011 the club will host a NatWest Series One Day International between England and India on 3rd September (see website for more details). At the height of the summer, the ground is transferred into a concert venue, with Elton John, UB40 and Jamie Cullum having played in recent years. All domestic fixtures are played between the months of April and September. For more details of games and types of competitions played at Emirates Durham ICG, visit our website.
