The Kia Oval is one of England's oldest and most important sporting grounds. Built as a cricket ground on land leased from the Duchy of Cornwall, it was soon established as a venue for sporting royalty. Having hosted significant events from Test cricket matches to international football games, this is a place where you can truly feel the history. Tickets for The Kia Oval are available now to buy or sell on StubHub.
Watch sporting fixtures at The Kia Oval
Established in 1845 on Kennington Common, The Kia Oval has been home to Surrey CCC since its opening. As well as being the home turf for this successful regional cricket club, the venue also hosts international cricket matches: the first Test cricket game was played here in 1880 and the 100th in July 2017, when England played South Africa. Although other famous sports grounds such as Lords are also used for Test cricket, the last match of the English season is traditionally held at The Kia Oval. Besides its important role as a host for cricket fixtures, The Kia Oval also made football history by being the scene of England's first "international" football match - the national team played and drew against Scotland in March 1870. The stadium is also significant for being the first sports ground to have artificial lighting - gas lamps were installed in 1889 to illuminate the action on the pitch. Tickets for The Kia Oval give sports enthusiasts not just the opportunity to watch world-class matches but also to experience a slice of history just by taking a seat in the stands.
