History will be made at the world-famous Edgbaston Stadium next August.
Day/night Test cricket has been destined for these shores ever since Australia and New Zealand did battle throughout the evening at the Adelaide Oval on 27 November 2015.
Now the pink ball format will be bouncing it’s way to the UK, and in particular Birmingham, for the first Test of the Investec Series between England and the West Indies at Edgbaston from Thursday 17 August to Monday 21 August.
It will be a fitting venue for the unique experience as Edgbaston played host to the UK’s first day/night domestic match in 1997.
The occasion, under the stadium’s eye-catching ‘E’ floodlights, will also mark the 50th Test Match in Edgbaston’s 115-year history as an international venue.
Ticket demand has already been huge – with sales up 400% in comparison to the first two days of last year’s Pakistan Test match going on general sale – so space will be at a premium for this landmark fixture.
Gala Events are delighted to offer Edgbaston hospitality in the Wyatt Suite on either day one or two. This fantastic package includes breakfast, a superb lunch, traditional afternoon tea and complimentary bar, as well as balcony seating with unbeatable views of the action out in the middle. There will also be top class guests speakers from the world of cricket.
