The 3aaa County Ground

Home of Derbyshire County Cricket Club

The 3aaa County Ground has been the home of cricket in Derbyshire for over 140 years since the Club’s formation in November 1870.

“I propose that a cricket club be formed representing the whole strength of the county, to be called The Derbyshire County Cricket Club.” Walter Boden, 4th November 1870

The ground has a rich sporting heritage and has hosted many events including a FA Cup final, international football and cricket, horse racing and the original home of Derby County Football Club.

The Club has invested a million pounds during the off-season to improve facilities for Members, supporters and Conference & Events customers. The 3aaa Pavilion has been transformed into a new and exclusive facility for Members on matchdays and a state-of-the-art 300-seater Conference & Events venue. This is the first phase of the Club’s long-term vision to develop an outdoor amphitheatre capable of hosting international cricket, concerts and community events.
