Sporting history at The Oval

Ever since 1845, Surrey County Cricket Club (CCC) has been based at The Oval – a stadium iconic for its sporting history and unique ownership by the Duchy of Cornwall, HRH Prince Charles. In addition to being the birthplace of the Ashes, in 1870 the ground hosted the first international football match in England, with England playing Scotland. Two years later in 1872, it hosted both the first ever FA Cup final and the auld enemy came together again this time in a Rugby Union fixture.

This is a rare opportunity to visit The Kia Oval and meet the man behind the voice.
