Notes to Editors:
The Yorkshire County Cricket Club
The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is one of the world's most famous cricket clubs. Founded in 1863, Yorkshire is England's most successful club, winning a record 33 County titles, joint Champions twice and five One-Day cricket crowns. Yorkshire can also lay to claim producing more England players in history than any other County, and no fewer than five players – Geoffrey Boycott, Len Hutton, Wilfred Rhodes, Fred Trueman and Herbert Sutcliffe – have been inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame. There is no other English county that can boast five members in the Hall of Fame.
Away from the professional arena, Yorkshire is the hotbed of cricket in the country with in excess of 850 grassroots clubs and schools playing the game every week in the summer equating to over 125,000 recreational players.
Its outstanding work in the local community, via the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, is regarded as one of the region’s best organised sporting foundations with over 20,000 schoolchildren visiting the Club’s home Headingley Cricket Ground across the year.
Headingley is also one of the world’s renowned international venues and is guaranteed the staging of international cricket every year until at least 2019. The ground opened in 1890 and will celebrate 125 years of sporting heritage in 2015.
