The University Match is the annual fixture between Oxford University Cricket Club and Cambridge University Cricket Club, played since 1827.
From 2001, as part of the reorganisation of national cricket, the University Match was changed from a three-day first-class fixture, played at Lord’s to a one-day University Match at Lord’s and a four-day first-class fixture played alternately at Fenner’s or The Parks. At the same time, CUWCC was incorporated into CUCC and the annual varsity match for women also played at Lord’s.
The last University Match to be played at Lord’s was in 2021.
CUCC is looking forward to welcoming new players and officials to the club.
