The International Cricket Council (ICC) have revealed the logo for next summer’s Women’s World Cup, which begins on 26 June with the final at Lord’s taking place on 23 July. 

Derby will be one of five venues across England to host fixtures at next summer’s world cup. It’s the first global sporting event to be held in the city since the Men’s Cricket World Cup in 1999, at The 3aaa County Ground.

During the bidding process, the Club erected a giant set of cricket stumps, manufactured by Briggs of Burton, on the Pentagon Roundabout, funded by over 60 local businesses as part of the #WereBackingTheBid campaign.

The stumps will act as a lasting legacy, while the Club hopes the global sporting event will also inspire young women across the county.

The 11th ICC Women’s World Cup will bring drama, excitement and a great summer of International cricket to the city of Derby when the tournament gets under way next summer.

Of the ten tournaments so far, just three countries have managed to lift the trophy; current champions Australia (6 times), England (3) and New Zealand (1).

The Women’s World Cup, launched before the men’s tournament in 1973, officially had its logo revealed on Saturday 23 July, marking exactly a year to go until the final at the Home of Cricket, Lord’s.

Information about fixtures and tickets are due to be released later this year.

Supporters can save 20% by purchasing their Royal London One-Day Cup matchday tickets in advance of the day of the game. Buy online, over the phone by calling 01332 388 101 or in person at The 3aaa County Ground.
