One Day International at The Ageas Bowl

The Borough of Eastleigh is set to welcome the England and Australian cricket teams together with thousands of cricket fans from around the country.

The Ageas Bowl’s 2015 International calendar continues when England face Australia on 3 September in the first of a five match series of Royal London One-Day Internationals (ODI) between the two sides.

Council Leader Councillor Keith House says, ”It’s great to welcome the players, officials, media and of course the fans to the borough to enjoy the prestigious and world class cricket venue that is the Ageas Bowl.” He added, “I’m sure that local cricket fans together with the many thousands travelling from further afield will have a great time at the Ageas Bowl experience. It will also provide a major boost to the local economy and I hope that everyone will enjoy the experience and facilities offered by our borough.”

Advance road signs for the day-night one day match are already in place around the area and the Council will be carrying out plans for temporary coning of residential areas and traffic management arrangements for the match. Its Streetscene staff will be undertaking additional local patrols as will parking patrol officers.

Road closures will be in place at the close of play to help pedestrians and vehicles leave the site. For more details about the ODI and other information about events at the Ageas Bowl visit web page: www.ageasbowl.com
