The Kia Oval
The Kia Oval is where it all began. Based in Kennington, the grounds have been the home of Surrey Cricket Club since 1845.
Universally renowned as the home of the Ashes, the stadium boasts a rich heritage and was the first ground in England to host international test cricket in 1880. Since then, every great cricketer in the world has played in the shadow of the famous gas-holders which overlook the site.
The Ashes series, cricket’s oldest rivalry, is seeing Australia and England go head-to-head this summer and is returning to The Kia Oval for the fifth and final match. As part of an ongoing upgrade programme we’ll be helping the Club to deliver a best-in-class guest experience for cricket fans visiting from all around the world.
