With the 2024 edition of The Hundred fast approaching, we look at the teams, schedule, fixture dates, and venues for the new season. Plus, we explain how you can get premium tickets to watch each team play.
The Hundred was founded by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in 2019 as a new 100 overs cricket competition, creating a shorter and more enjoyable format for the sport.
The tournament features a men’s and women’s league consisting of eight teams based in seven major cities: Birmingham, Manchester, London, Leeds, Southampton, Nottingham, and Cardiff.
The tournament is played over a 32-game regular season, with the second and third-place teams meeting in an Eliminator to determine which team will face the first-placed team in the grand finale.

What teams are in The Hundred cricket?
Founded in 2019, Birmingham Phoenix are the representative of the historic cricketing counties of Warwickshire and Worcestershire in The Hundred cricket competition.
Both the men’s and women’s teams play their home fixtures at the iconic Edgbaston Cricket Ground which has a capacity of 25,000, making it the joint third-largest cricket ground in the UK.
Both teams best finish came in the 2021 season. The Women finished third, narrowly missing out on a sport in the final after losing out to eventual champions Oval Invincibles in the Eliminator round. The Mne finished as runners-up, after being beaten by 32 runs in the final by Southern Brave.
The men's squad will be looking to experienced captain Moeen Ali to lead the squad to victory this season, the player is in fine form after helping England to win the 2022 T20 World Cup.
Based in the north of England's capital city, London Spirit are the representatives of the famous cricketing counties of Northamptonshire, Middlesex, and Essex in The Hundred cricket competition.
Both the Men and Women’s London Spirit teams play their home games at Lord’s Cricket Ground, the largest purpose-built cricket ground in the UK that is widely referred to as the “Home of cricket”.
In the three seasons that the teams have competed in The Hundred, neither team has had any success, with the men’s highest finish being third and the women’s fourth.
Both teams will be looking to win their first bit of silverware in the 2023 season, with Eoin Morgan and Charlie Dean now leading the teams.
The Manchester Originals represent the great cricketing county of Lancashire in The Hundred competition.
The teams play their home matches at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, the joint third largest cricket ground in the UK and the famous home of Lancashire Cricket Club since 1864.
Neither team has been able to conquer The Hundred yet. The woman's highest finish of fifth place came in 2021, while the men's team finished as runners-up in the 2022 final.
With one of the game's brightest young talents Phil Salt in their ranks, the Manchester Originals will have one eye on the title this season.
The Northern Superchargers are based in the city of Leeds, and represent the Northeast and Yorkshire in The Hundred competition.
The men's and women’s Superchargers teams play their home fixtures at Headingly Cricket Club, which has a capacity of 18,350 and has hosted cricket test matches for Yorkshire Cricket Club since 1890.
Both the Men’s and Women’s teams have struggled to make their mark in the league, with both sets of players only finishing as high as fifth in the three years since the league’s conception.
This season the Superchargers will be looking to star player and World Cup hero Ben Stokes to bring them their first title. The women will be eager to see one of the best female cricketers in the world, Alyssa Healy, take to the field in 2023.
Oval Invincibles are based in London and compete in The Hundred on behalf of the historic countries of Surrey and Kent.
The home of the Invincibles is the Oval Cricket Ground, from which the teams derive their name. It is the second largest cricket ground in the UK with a capacity of 27,500 and has been the home of Surrey County Cricket Club since its opening in 1845.
While the men’s Invincibles have struggled to cement their place at the top of The Hundred table, the women's team has been highly successful. Winning the 2021, 2022 and 2023 championships consecutively against rivals Southern Brave, the women have truly earned their Invincible name.
The men will be looking to match the achievements of the women in future seasons, and with big scorer Jason Roy batting for them this season, they will be one to watch.
The women will look to make it a hat trick of titles, and with the acquisition of all-round world beater Dane Van Niekerk, they will be a hard team to beat.
Southern Brave are located in Southampton, they represent the counties of Sussex and Hampshire in The Hundred competition.
The home of the Brave teams for both genders is the Ageas Bowl. It is the joint third-largest ground in the UK and has hosted cricket matches since its construction in 2001 to replace the historic County Ground.
The Southern Brave women’s team finished as runners-up in each of the last two seasons, narrowly losing out to Oval Invincibles on both occasions.
The men have had more success, winning the competition in 2021 when they defeated Birmingham Phoenix by 32 runs in the final.
Fast bowler Jofra Archer will give the men a huge advantage this season in their quest for a league title double, as the women will look to the electric opening batter and huge run scorer Danni Wyatt to help them go one better than last season's result.
The Trent Rockets are based in Nottingham and represent the famous cricketing counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire in The Hundred competition.
They play at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, which has been used for cricket since the early 1830s.
The Trent Rockets women have not finished higher than third place in the competition so far but will be eager to change that this season, with Nat Sciver tipped to have a key role to play this season.
The men’s side are the most recent winners of The Hundred, piping Manchester Originals to the title by just one run.
For the upcoming season, the Rockets will look to continue their dominance of last year, and with English legend Joe Root in the mix, they will be confident of retaining their title.
The only team in the Hundred competition not in England, Welsh Fire are based in Cardiff and represents the counties of Glamorgan, Gloucestershire and Somerset.
Both teams play at the Sophia Gardens Cricket Ground, home to Glamorgan County Cricket Club since 1967. With a capacity of 15,643, it is the smallest ground in the competition.
The Fire are the team with the least amount of success since the competition began in 2019, with neither the men’s nor the women’s teams finishing higher than seventh place.
The men’s team have bolstered their attack with World Cup-winning batter Jonny Bairstow in their pursuit to climb their way up the league table.
The women’s team will look to new young gun Lauren Filer to help them work their way up the ranks with her superb seam bowling.
