Location Information:

 

Old Trafford Cricket Ground, usually referred to as Old Trafford or Lancashire County Cricket Ground (often abbreviated to LCCG) is a cricket ground situated on Talbot Road in Old Trafford. It has been the home of Lancashire County Cricket Club since its foundation in 1864, although it was the ground of Manchester Cricket Club from 1856. International Test matches have been played there since 1884.

The cricket ground is near the Old Trafford football stadium (a five minute walk away down Warwick Road and Sir Matt Busby Way), in the borough of Trafford in Greater Manchester, approximately two miles south west of Manchester city centre. Its capacity is 22,000 for Test matches, for which temporary stands are erected, and 15,000 for other matches. Since 1884, it has hosted 73 Tests, the third highest number in England, behind Lord's and The Oval.

The two ends of the ground are the Stretford End to the west and the Brian Statham End (formerly the Warwick Road End) to the east, renamed in honour of the former Lancashire and England player. The section of Warwick Road behind this end is also called Brian Statham Way. Immediately abutting the ground to the south-east is the Old Trafford Metrolink station.

Around 4/5 of Old Trafford's circumference is bordered by stands, with all single-tiered except the Cyril Washbrook-Brian Statham Stand, a two-tiered cantilever structure built in 1993; this faces the Pavilion, parallel to the wicket, and is consequently only open during better-attended games. The remaining 1/5 of the perimeter lost its stands in 1999, creating a position for temporary stands that can increase the ground's overall capacity. This empty area can also accommodate a stage, allowing Old Trafford to be used as a musical arena
