Lord’s Cricket Ground’s new 2017 hospitality packages

Following an unforgettable summer of cricket, Lord’s is now looking forward to welcoming Ireland, South Africa and the West Indies in 2017.

Demand is expected to be extremely high for next year’s top fixtures, and the Home of Cricket, owned by Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), has launched a range of luxury hospitality packages for those wishing to witness next year’s hotly anticipated matches in style.

International match day hospitality packages are available to purchase for all of England’s fixtures at Lord’s throughout 2017, with two Royal London One-Day Internationals and two Investec Test Matches taking place at the Ground.

The summer of cricket gets underway with Ireland’s Royal London One-Day International debut at Lord’s on Sunday 7th May, before South Africa returns for the first time since 2012 for another 50-over clash on Monday 29th May.

England and South Africa meet again in the first Investec Test Match of the summer between 6th and 10th July, which is followed by the third England v West Indies Investec Test Match (7th – 11th September).

Match day hospitality packages are available for all fixtures for those looking for a memorable day of cricket and world-class class food and drink, with prices available to suit a variety of budgets. Cricket enthusiasts visiting the Home of Cricket next summer will be able to choose from three specially created packages, each including a match ticket for one of the best seats in the house, with prices starting at £329 + VAT.

Guests attending a day of the renowned hospitality experience at Lord’s will be able to indulge in fine dining with impeccable service and a complimentary bar (including fine champagne). In addition, guests are given an opportunity to meet ex-international cricketers who play host for the day.

A full day of hospitality at Lord’s for top packages includes a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, all prepared by the Ground’s in-house catering team, as well as access to the best seats to view the action.

Next summer’s menus at Lord’s will celebrate British produce, with an added twist based on the touring teams playing over the season.

Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality said: “This year has been a particularly strong year at Lord’s and we expect 2017 to be equally successful. We work hard to create a unique and unforgettable experience for all our guests who want to experience world-class food as well as world-class cricket. Demand is expected to be extremely high for a full day of the renowned hospitality at Lord’s during an international fixture so we advise people to book early to secure their desired dates.”

Details of all 2017 hospitality packages can be found via the Lord’s website.
