Headingley secures 2023 Ashes Test, Ageas Bowl misses out

Headingley secures 2023 Ashes Test, Ageas Bowl misses out

The Nottingham ground was missing from the list of host venues when the England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed their schedule for the 2023 series on Thursday (AEDT).

The venue announcement comes as the European Central Bank revealed the locations for major domestic and worldwide matches for a five-year period from 2020, subject to contract. The threat of a withdrawal of funding for the project previous year had led to concerns about the future of the ground as an worldwide venue.

On both counts, as the European Central Bank this week prepares to publish its major match allocation over the five seasons from 2020 to 2024, Southampton's Ageas Bowl is reportedly heavily in the mix.

For Twenty20 and one-day internationals, 10 grounds, will stage matches each summer, with the six Test grounds added to by the Ageas Bowl, Cardiff, Bristol and Durham's Riverside.

Thank you for your feedback.




The eight venues for the new competition are as widely expected.

The venues for the 2023 Ashes series will be the same as for next year's England-Australia showdown.

The Ageas Bowl has never hosted an Ashes Test. The Ageas Bowl, the Swalec Stadium, Edgbaston, Headingley, the Oval, Lord's, Old Trafford and Trent Bridge were announced as the venues "around which new partnerships would be formed and new teams created".

"With a five-year period of global and domestic cricket in prospect, as well as our New Competition being developed, there was very strong interest in hosting these events and the overall standard of submissions was excellent".
