Facts

Location Client Cost Completion
Old Trafford, Manchester Lancashire County Cricket Club £200m (The Point - £12m) 2012

Project details

A 20 hectare regeneration strategy around the ground.

Radical redevelopment of Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, transforming the historic venue into one of the country’s premier sporting destinations.

New additions include the award winning venue The Point, the historic pavilion, and a new player and media centre. The development has spectacular views over the pitch and to the Pennines beyond.

The orientation of the wicket has changed for the first time in 150 years, from east/west to north/south to resolve sunlight issues which have affected players previously.

It will deliver huge economic benefits both for Trafford and for the north-west region.

Jim Cumbes LCCC Chief Executive
