The Oval, currently known for sponsorship reasons as the Kia Oval, is an international cricket ground in Kennington, in the London Borough of Lambeth, South London. The Oval has been the home ground of Surrey County Cricket Club since it was opened in 1845. It was the first ground in England to host international Test cricket in September 1880. The final Test match of the English season is traditionally played there.
In addition to cricket, The Oval has hosted a number of other historically significant sporting events. In 1870, it staged England's first international football match, versus Scotland. It hosted the first FA Cup final in 1872, as well as those between 1874 and 1892. In 1876, it held both the England v Wales and England v Scotland rugby international matches, and in 1877, rugby's first Varsity match. It also hosted the final of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy.

  • Went to the Test Match versus India the day after Cook's final century and witnessed Anderson becoming the most successful fast bowler in Test Match history. Great day!
  • Here for a conference. Plenty of rooms with a nice view of the field. Rooms seemed a little worn in some cases but the staff and facilities seemed to work well for the day.
