GET TO KNOW THE BRISTOL COUNTY GROUND
Three matches will be played at the Bristol County Ground during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
Those three fixtures will double the number of Men’s World Cup games the ground has held, following one in 1983 and two in 1999.
More recently, the Bristol County Ground hosted eight fixtures at the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017, including England’s dramatic semi-final win over South Africa.
The ground came into existence in 1889, and was bought by none other than WG Grace! Since then, Gloucestershire County Cricket Club have called it home for nearly 130 years.
