England v Australia – The Investec Ashes 2013
The eyes of the sporting world will be on the region as this will be one of the largest sporting events ever to be held in the region. The Emirates Durham Test will be the fourth in the series, from Friday 9th to Tuesday 13th August 2013.
Durham CCC Chief Executive David Harker said “Hosting the Investec Ashes Test match at Emirates Durham is great reward for the hard work and effort put in by the staff and players to put Durham County Cricket Club at the forefront of cricket, on and off the pitch.
“We are really looking forward to what will be five days of exciting cricket at a sell-out Emirates Durham ICG. This is a great opportunity for the north east to be showcased on the international stage, not only demonstrating our ability to hold world class events but also boosting tourism and our local economy. We look forward to giving visitors the warm and friendly welcome associated with our region.”
