The prize fund will be split equally in The Hundred. Both the men’s and women’s winners will receive the same money.

The stars of The Hundred will receive equal prize money in both the men’s and women’s competitions. A total prize fund of £600,000 will be divided 50/50 between both teams.

Tickets to standalone women’s matches in The Hundred will be available from 9-16 March in a special priority ticket window.

Beth Barrett-Wild, head of The Hundred women’s competition said: “We’re really proud of our movement towards making cricket a gender-balanced sport and whilst we’re aware there is more to do in this space, this is an important step in the right direction. It’s recognition for the women’s players and the huge value they bring to The Hundred.

“The ECB is committed to transforming women’s and girls’ cricket, from inspiring young girls to pick up a bat for the first time, through to establishing the women’s game as a professional career option. This announcement today represents one signal of intent towards that commitment.”

Heather Knight, captain of London Spirit women’s team adds: “This is a great announcement for women’s sport. Women’s professional cricket is on an exciting journey and whilst, there is still a way to go to realise gender-parity, this move from The Hundred is a significant step in the right direction. We’re all really excited about playing in the new competition and hopefully inspiring more young girls and boys to pick up a bat and ball.”

A special priority window for tickets to standalone women’s matches in The Hundred will be available from 9-16 March. To get access to these, and to hear about offers, competitions and all the latest news from The Hundred, sign up below.
