Yorkshire is the unofficial home of world cricket. No other county is as passionate about its cricket as Yorkshire. Yorkshire County Cricket Club has been responsible for nurturing the talents of some of the game's greatest players and it's home ground has been the venue for some of the defining matches in the game's domestic and international history.
From internationals held at the world famous Headingley Carnegie stadium and the historic Scarborough Cricket Festival which has been graced by players such as Bradman, Boycott and Hutton, to the picture postcard villages with local cricket matches taking place every week of the season, Yorkshire celebrates cricket like no other place in the world.
The stupendous new £21 million Carnegie pavilion opened in 2010. This prestige development offers the Ground's best viewing facilities, not to mention changing and press accommodation. As this proves, Headingley just keeps getting better and better. 120 years of cricket, and definitely not out!
Yorkshire County Cricket Club has produced some genuine legends of the game, among them Geoff Boycott, Len Hutton, Fred Truman and 2005 Ashes winning England captain, Michael Vaughan and now Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root. The club has also made its home in Headingley, just north of Leeds, for more than a century.
The club competes in all forms of top class domestic cricket, including County Championship, Twenty20 Cup, and ECB 40 over.
