Old Trafford: Lancashire ground renamed in Emirates deal

Lancashire’s Old Trafford home has been renamed as part of a 10-year partnership with airline firm Emirates.

It will now be known as “Emirates Old Trafford”, while the brand will also appear on Lancashire’s Twenty20 kit as part of the deal announced on Thursday.

The ground will host the third Ashes Test between England and Australia in August – the first time it has staged a Test since 2010.

A multi-million pound redevelopment is due to be completed ahead of that game.

Commercial director Geoff Durbin would not reveal the exact figure of how much the deal would be worth to Lancashire, but said it would be a significant sum over a long-term period. Read more
