The Cheltenham Cricket Festival is one of the most loved events in the social and sporting calendar. The idyllic setting of Cheltenham College provides the perfect backdrop for cricket at the height of summer.
Gloucestershire have been playing in the stunning grounds of Cheltenham College for over 140 years, making this the world’s longest running cricket festival on an outfield. The ground’s idyllic setting has provided a perfect backdrop for the Festival throughout its history, a great attraction for cricket fans, new supporters and big cricketing stars.
Gloucestershire Cricket (GCCC) is delighted to announce Fergal O’Brien Racing (FOBR) as the Official Partner and Title Sponsor to the 2019 Cheltenham Cricket Festival.
The Fergal O’Brien Cheltenham Cricket Festival will take place 15-28 July and will feature County Championship, Vitality Blast and Under 19's One-Day cricket matches.
FOBR is one of the Cotswolds’ leading National Hunt yards and has enjoyed much success of late at Prestbury Park, the HQ of jump racing situated just 10 minutes across the town from Cheltenham College.
Whether you’re an avid cricket fan or a first timer, the festival is the perfect opportunity to entertain clients, treat friends and family or reward staff to a fantastic day out.
