Enjoy the last days of summer at Lords, The Home of Cricket, with our giveaway to win a pair of tickets to the Royal London One-Day Cup Final.
There’s nothing that represents the English summer like cricket being played and as the summer draws to a close, we’ve teamed up with Lords, The Home of Cricket, to give you the chance to win tickets to the last cup final event at Lords this year. Expect sporting action and family activities to make for a very special day out.
The Royal London One-Day Cup Final
As the pinnacle of the one-day domestic cricket calendar, the Royal London One-Day Cup Final offers nail-biting sports action, a great family day out and an opportunity to witness history being made at Lord’s, The Home of Cricket.
The last major cricket final of the county season will see Warwickshire take on Surrey on Saturday the 17 September 2016 and offers something for everyone.
As well as taking in a match at the iconic sports venue, visitors will be able to take part in a range of activities, from picnicking by the pavilion to batting competitions and free tasters sessions with MCC coaches for the children. There may also be the chance to see some of the stars of the England men’s and women’s teams as they take to the pitch to coach two young teams in the final of the Gilbert Cup.
The one-day game will take the spotlight as the nation prepares itself for hosting both the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy and 2019 Cricket World Cup respectively on home soil and this competition has widely been considered an opportunity for upcoming players to stake their claim for an England cap.
Eighteen teams have been on the Road to Lord’s since June battling for a place in the final. And this year sees two of the competition’s ‘nearly men’ go head to head. Whilst Warwickshire will still be licking their wounds from a nail-biting three wicket defeat to Durham back in 2014, Surrey will be looking to lift the prestigious trophy after a six run loss at the hands of Gloucestershire last year.
