The home of Nottinghamshire CCC will host five group matches at next summer's ICC Cricket World Cup.
First opened in 1841, Trent Bridge is a truly historic cricket ground. It first hosted a one-day international in 1974 and has been used as a Cricket World Cup venue for the 1975, 1979, 1983 and 1999 editions.
At the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 it will host five matches, including England v Pakistan. Hosts England have a great record at Trent Bridge, having won both their previous World Cup games at the venue: wins against New Zealand in 1975 and Zimbabwe in 1999.
Trent Bridge, which is the home of Nottinghamshire - was the venue where England recently set a record ODI score of 481/6, with Alex Hales and Jonny Bairstow both making centuries. It was also the ground where they previously set the record in 2016, when they scored 444/3.

THINGS TO DO IN NOTTINGHAM
The largest urban area in the East Midlands, Nottingham is home to over 321,500 residents
Probably best known for its associations with the legendary Outlaw - Robin Hood and Nottingham Castle (currently closed for development until 2020), the city is also famous as the once-centre of the lace making trade as well as for the tobacco industry and cycle manufacture.
Nottingham was named a ‘City of Literature’ by UNESCO in 2015, reflecting Nottingham's literary heritage; with Lord Byron, D. H. Lawrence and Alan Sillitoe having links to the city.
Its universities, the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, are attended by over 60,000 students.
The city predates Anglo-Saxon times and was known in Brythonic as Tigguo Cobauc, meaning ‘Place of Caves’ (known also as ‘City of Caves’). There are over 800 recorded caves beneath the city with lots more to be discovered.
Built into the cave system beneath Nottingham Castle is a contender for the title of England's Oldest Pub, supposedly established in 1189. Two other local pubs have both disputed this claim.
No stranger to major events, the city hosted the 2012 Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, 2014 GB National Archery Finals, the pre-Wimbledon Nottingham Open tournament, and Mixed Relay Triathlon; as well as being home to the UK's largest urban beach, annual Splendour and Riverside Festivals, and the world-renowned Goose Fair.
In 2015 Nottingham was crowned Home of England Sport – unsurprising as Nottingham is home to the world's oldest professional football club, Notts County, which was formed in 1862. The town's other football club, Nottingham Forest, had a period of success between 1977 and 1993 winning the First Division, four League Cups, a UEFA Super Cup and two European Cups. The clubs are the two closest grounds in The Football League with just 415m between the centre points of the two stadia. These in turn are a short step away from Trent Bridge Cricket Ground.
The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has a full, dedicated security team working on plans for a safe and secure tournament for all participants and spectators.
We are working with police in all our host cites and the national security services to ensure the security provided at the tournament is of the highest order, while existing security staff at all CWC19 host venues are receiving additional training in the build-up to the tournament.
There will be enhanced security plans at all our host venues with visible security measures taking place, as well as other non-visible measures happening throughout the tournament, inside and outside the stadium.
