WE ARE DELIGHTED TO CONFIRM THAT THE FINAL OF THE RACHAEL HEYHOE FLINT TROPHY IS COMING TO LORD’S FOR THE FIRST TIME.  

In its third year, the popular domestic women’s regional 50-over competition, named after the late Baroness Heyhoe Flint, will reach its concluding match with a showpiece final at Lord’s on 25 September, with the top two teams battling it out to lift the Trophy and mark the close of another memorable summer of women’s cricket.

Last year we announced that the North Gate will be renamed the Heyhoe Flint Gate in honour of her contribution to MCC and cricket more generally.  

Having broken records last year, we hope to host the largest attendance at a standalone domestic women’s fixture in the UK with thousands arriving at the Ground through the new Heyhoe Flint Gates.  

The exciting season at Lord’s gets underway on 7 April with Middlesex’s opening LV=Insurance County Championship match, the first of six to be played throughout the summer. The tournament will revert to the format of running two divisions with the return of the promotion and relegation system.  

In June and early July, Middlesex will be back in action under the floodlights for the Vitality Blast, which this year celebrates its twentieth edition of the exhilarating competition. Lord’s will host four fast-paced and gripping Vitality Blast group matches against Surrey, Kent, Essex and Somerset respectively, starting off with Middlesex facing their south of the river rivals in the London Derby on 9 June.  

England men’s international matches, announced last year, will see the national team return to Lord’s for a Test match in June to face New Zealand, a One-Day International against India in July and for the final time this summer when they take on South Africa in a Test match in August.
