We look forward to the ICC Champions Trophy in Cardiff this June. The Trophy, in which the top eight ODI national teams in the world compete in the 50 over form of the game, takes place every four years.
The ICC Champions Trophy will take place from 6 – 23 June in three venues in England and Wales: Cardiff, Edgbaston in Birmingham and The Oval in London. There are five games in Cardiff, including the championship’s opening game takes on 6 June, with India playing South Africa and a Semi final on Thursday 20 June.
This year also marks the 40th anniversary of international cricket in Wales. The first game was England v New Zealand in 1973 played at St Helen’s, Swansea, with England winning. England remain unbeaten in Wales – often aided by the weather!
Who can forget the momentous Ashes Test match in 2009, where England clung on to earn a draw thanks to the heroics of Monty Panesar and James Anderson.
The England team, representing both England and Wales, will be playing New Zealand in Wales again, with their group A match taking place at the Sophia Gardens on 16 June. For cricket loving dads, why not take your father to watch the game, a great Father’s Day treat!
Tickets are extremely good value. Under 16 tickets from £5, under 21 tickets from £10, and adults tickets from £20 in the family stand. This means a family of four can watch a whole day of top international cricket for just £50.
