With its iconic setting and picturesque surroundings, The Ageas Bowl is one of the most impressive cricket venues in the country. And this summer, the home of Hampshire Cricket will be playing host to one of the most exciting fixtures in the cricketing calendar.


Starting on Sunday 27 July, England will face India in an Investec Test Match, right here on your doorstep; this is the third match of a five-match series, so all will be to play for.

England will be desperate to bounce back on home soil after a disappointing winter, but India make the trip to The Ageas Bowl as one of the most formidable teams in world cricket. With big-name players like James Anderson, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli on show this year, there’ll be no shortage of champagne moments.

What better venue to host this potentially crucial match of the series than the picture-perfect, Ageas Bowl, a ground which has earned a notable reputation for staging exciting, high scoring international matches.

Free bus transport to and from the ground from Southampton Airport Parkway Railway Station alongside an efficient Park & Ride system makes access to the ground quick and stress free; whilst a truly warm welcome and a perfect view from every seat complete the package.

In addition, great value ticket prices alongside dedicated family and alcohol-free areas make the biggest cricket game ever staged in Hampshire accessible for

all. Adult tickets start at just £45 and U’16’s are all £10.
