England and Wales Cricket Board announces 2023 Ashes venues

The news was confirmed as the European Central Bank unveiled the eight venues for the new Twenty20 competition and the allocation of global matches until 2024, confirming a marked increase in worldwide T20 cricket as part of radical changes to the global calendar.

"To host the Ashes in 2023, following on from 2019, is one of the "moments" of cricket both from a playing, watching and hosting perspective, and will enable our vision of re-engaging our core cricket audiences across more than 300 clubs in Lancashire, as well as every school in the North West, and attracting new fans through the new T20 tournament".

Guy Lavender, Chief Executive & Secretary of MCC, said: "We are delighted with the outcome of the tender process".

"The club has made a significant investment into the stadium over the last decade and we have some of the best facilities in world cricket along with the largest capacity outside of London".

Gloucestershire, Durham, Glamorgan and Hampshire will all host England one-day internationals at their grounds throughout this period, with the latter two also set to stage T20 internationals.

"Emirates Old Trafford has been a Test venue for more than 130 years and we are proud of our rich heritage and history in hosting worldwide fixtures".

In total, 30 Test Matches, 30 One-Day Internationals, 30 International T20 matches, 10 domestic finals, as well as the eight partnership agreements for the new eight-team T20 competition were awarded over the five-year period.

The Nottingham ground was missing from the list of host venues when the England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed their schedule for the 2023 series on Thursday (AEDT).

On both counts, as the European Central Bank this week prepares to publish its major match allocation over the five seasons from 2020 to 2024, Southampton's Ageas Bowl is reportedly heavily in the mix.
