The Hundred is heading back to Nottingham for 2023, bringing with it four weeks of spectacular entertainment and intense cricket action at the height of the summer. After two hugely successful years, the competition is set to kick off on Tuesday 1 August at Trent Bridge, promising high octane men’s and women’s sporting action, live music, and a host of family-friendly entertainment.
Trent Bridge will host four home double-header fixtures in August, including the opening game of the competition against Southern Brave on 1 August. Trent Rockets men will be looking to retain the title they won in 2022, with the women looking to better their Eliminator finish.
More than half a million people attended games during The Hundred’s second year in 2022, including a record-breaking 271,000 watching live women’s fixtures across the competition and more families buying tickets than in 2021. Alongside world-class cricket, fans were treated to memorable performances from a diverse line-up of artists and DJs including headliners Bastille and Seagirls, Deco, Queen Millz and DJ Charlie Burley, thanks to The Hundred’s ongoing partnership with BBC Music Introducing.
There will be an initial, exclusive window to purchase tickets from 1-14 March for anyone who has previously bought tickets for The Hundred. Those yet to attend can sign up in advance at thehundred.com for priority ticket access from 5–18 April. Tickets will then go on general sale on Thursday 20 April. Tickets this year remain great value in line with 2022 pricing, with prices set at £5 for juniors aged 6-15, free for children five and under, and adults starting from £10.
Nat Sciver, Trent Rockets and England all-rounder, said:
“The first two years of The Hundred have been amazing. The crowd at Trent Bridge is like having an extra player and it’s great to get to meet some of the fans after the games and hopefully inspire the next generation to have a go at cricket. We were desperate to reach the final last year but just fell short, so there will be that added bit of determination in 2023 to go all the way.”
Lewis Gregory, Trent Rocket’s men’s captain said:
“The support we got at home went a long way to helping us finish top of the table and win the competition last year. Trent Bridge is an amazing place to play cricket, especially during The Hundred with the music and hundreds of kids cheering for you in the crowd.”
Northern Superchargers will visit Nottingham on 9 August for Trent Rockets’ second home game of the campaign, with Trent Bridge then playing host to Manchester Originals on 17 August and local rivals Birmingham Phoenix two days later on 19 August.
The Hundred Eliminator, where second and third placed teams fight it out for a place in the final, is set for Saturday 26 August at The Kia Oval. The Final itself will take place on Sunday 27 August at Lord’s.
For the first time this year The Hundred will see both the men’s and the women’s competitions host a draft. The date The Hundred Draft is due to be held is Thursday 2 March. Deadline day – the day on which retained players are confirmed across both competitions – is set to be Thursday 16 February.
Over 14.1 million people tuned in to watch The Hundred action in 2022 and games will again be broadcast live on Sky Sports and BBC broadcast and digital channels throughout the competition.
