Hosted by the world renowned private members club, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), teams of up to nine players will get to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity to play on the famous hallowed turf, alongside a former professional cricketer, whilst enjoying an award winning hospitality service throughout the day.
With England taking on New Zealand in the first Investec Test Match of the English summer at Lord’s just three days before the event, players will get to literally follow in Alastair Cook’s footsteps – walking out to the middle from the Dressing Rooms and through the iconic Long Room, to play in an action-packed six-aside tournament.
Priced at £9,000 per team, corporate guests will be fuelled before play gets underway with a hearty breakfast served in the Long Room. Each team will then be treated to their own private hospitality box – fully stocked with wine, beer and soft drinks – and later on, a sumptuous lunch will be served on the Mound Stand Roof Terrace. During the afternoon break, guests will enjoy a quintessentially British cricket tea designed by resident patisier Thierry Besselievre and, finally, the day will be rounded-off with a champagne reception on the Pavilion Roof Terrace and a black-tie dinner in the Pavilion.
Julie Bacon, Hospitality Sales Manager at Lord’s Cricket Ground, said: “Playing at the world’s most famous and historic cricket ground is an opportunity that doesn’t come around often, and walking out to the “middle” at Lord’s is something that many will only dream of. We are thrilled to be able to offer this chance; we have seen a great interest in this event over the last few months and spaces for teams are running out quickly.”
