The Hundred at The Utilita Bowl
Tel: 02380 472002
After a record year in 2023, The Hundred will return to the South Coast in 2024, delivering a month of world-class cricket and blockbuster entertainment for all the family.
The South Coast will host its first home fixture on Wednesday 24 July, with both Southern Brave men’s and women’s teams kicking off their competition against London Spirit.
The Brave will then be back at home for the first of three more double-headers on Thursday 1 August, taking on Manchester Originals, before their final two matchdays on Saturday 10 August against Trent Rockets and Wednesday 14 August versus Welsh Fire.
The competition itself is set to kick off on Tuesday 23 July, as Oval Invincibles and Birmingham Phoenix take part in the tournament’s first double-header, the first of 34 matchdays across 26 days of compelling sport at the height of summer.
In 2023, Southern Brave’s women made it third time lucky, as they lifted the trophy for the first time and England legend Anya Shrubsole ended her career in style, whilst the men almost emulated their success of 2021 by reaching the Eliminator.
A record 580,000 fans were in venues across The Hundred in 2023, including over 300,000 in the women’s competition. The Hundred’s blend of high-quality sport and entertainment saw 41% of all tickets sold to families, 23% to juniors and 30% to women.
Alongside world-class cricket, thanks to The Hundred’s ongoing partnership with BBC Music Introducing, fans were treated to memorable music performances from a diverse line-up of artists and DJs including headliners Rudimental, the Lottery Winners, DYLAN and Prima Queen.
Supporters who have been season ticket holders in any of the three years of The Hundred or who bought a ticket in 2023 will be able to buy a season ticket from today. From 13-27 March there will be an exclusive window open to fans who have previously bought tickets to The Hundred. The priority sale window is open from 9-23 April, open to all fans who sign up in advance at thehundred.com. The general sale period begins from 25 April.
Tickets are once again great value, with prices set at £5 for juniors aged 3-15 (free for under 3s) and adults starting from £11.
The Hundred Eliminator, where second- and third-placed teams compete for a place in The Hundred Final, is confirmed for Saturday 17 August at The Kia Oval. The Hundred Final will take place on Sunday 18 August at Lord’s.
Southern Brave and England Women’s batter Danni Wyatt, who helped Southern Brave lift the trophy last season, said: “I can’t wait for The Hundred. It’s such a fun competition to play in, and the crowds are getting better and better. You can really feel the difference at The Hundred in terms of the number of young people and families in the crowd. It’s done so much for the women’s game and the lift in both the profile and the standard of women’s cricket has been amazing. We were so happy to get over the line and win The Hundred last year and we really want to do it again in year four of the competition.”
James Vince, Southern Brave men’s captain said: “As a team, we can’t wait to get started in front of our brilliant fans at Utilita Bowl on 24 July. I am sure the atmosphere will be electric, as it always is for Southern Brave matches. Hopefully we can give our fans something to get really excited about on the pitch.”
The Hundred Draft, powered by Sage, will be back across both the men’s and the women’s competitions ahead of the 2024 summer as the 16 teams – including Andrew Flintoff’s Northern Superchargers men’s team – prepare their bids for The Hundred title.
For the first time, selection in the women’s competition will now take place exclusively through retention, The Hundred Draft and the Vitality Wildcard Draft. Salaries in the women's competition have increased by £100,000 per team, with the top salary bracket now at £50,000.
All games will again be live on Sky Sports and BBC broadcast and digital channels throughout the competition.
