The Kia Oval is the proud home of Surrey County Cricket Club and England Cricket.
The Kia Oval is one of the most iconic sports venues in the world. Located in central London, The Kia Oval hosts world-class cricket week-in-week-out throughout the spring summer months. As well as this, the venue offers an array of industry-leading facilities for conferences and events, which boast spectacular views of the pitch and the city.
Founded in 1845, Surrey County Cricket Club is one of the most historic and successful cricket clubs in the world. Having first won the County Championship in 1890, we have since lifted the most prestigious trophy in English domestic cricket twenty times, most recently in 2018. We have also seen great success in the limited overs game, with nine limited overs titles, including the first ever Twenty20 Cup in 2003.
An integral part of Surrey County Cricket Club is the Surrey Cricket Foundation, which is the charitable body charged with the delivery of recreational cricket in Surrey and South London. The Foundation work with schools, clubs, charities and governing bodies to increase participation in the sport amongst all demographics, as well as providing infrastructure to help the game thrive amongst our local communities.
In 2020, we also launched the ACE Programme – Cricket’s Afro Caribbean Engagement programme. Now an independent charity, the Club still supports ACE in helping diverse talent progress from the grassroots to the elite through a multitude of avenues, including, talent pathways, elite academy support, workforce development and an inspiring vision. The Kia Oval & Surrey County Cricket Club is a global brand and venue that welcomes a diverse audience through its gates every single week of the year.
