Overview

Old Trafford has been home to the Manchester Cricket Club since 1856 and to the Lancashire County Cricket Club since it was founded in 1864. International Test matches have been played here since 1884 and it is also one of the wettest test cricket venues in England and Wales! Occasionally, the venue is used for large music concerts like when hometown band Oasis played in 2002. Several other popular bands including the Foo Fighters, the Strokes, and Eagles of Death Metal have played there as well. Future plans for Old Trafford involve the development of a new stadium with new stands, a hotel and sport-related educational/training opportunities for all.
