Check out the fixture listings on the Gloucestershire Cricket website or our what's on section for full information on County Championship, One-Day, Twenty20 and International matches at the Brightside Ground.

Bristol regularly hosts international cricket matches, including many One-Day Internationals and the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Bristol has been awarded three games at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 when the tournament returns to England and Wales:

Bristol has a strong cricket history, including being the birthplace of cricket-legend W.G Grace, who was born in Downend and went on to become one of the first genuine sport stars of a generation. Also in 1899, 13-year-old schoolboy A. E. J. Collins achieved what was, for 116 years, the highest-ever recorded individual score in cricket. He scored 628 not out at Clifton College before going on to serve and give his life at the battle of Ypres in WWI.
