About Sussex County Cricket Club

Sussex CCC was the first First-Class County formed in 1839

In November 2015, an historic merger took place between Sussex County Cricket Club and the Sussex Cricket Board, to form Sussex Cricket Limited (SCL). SCL is responsible for the governance and development of the whole game in the county, from recreational to professional level.

Sussex County Cricket Club is the oldest professional sports club in the world and one of the eighteen first-class county clubs within the domestic cricket structure of England and Wales. Its limited overs team is called the Sussex Sharks. The club has always held first-class status. Sussex have competed in the County Championship since the official start of the competition in 1890 and have played in every top-level domestic cricket competition in England.

The Club won its first County Championship in 2003, which was the beginning of an era in which Sussex enjoyed prolonged success, named 'The Golden Decade'.

Sussex Cricket also incorporates the Sussex Cricket Foundation (SCF). Through the activities, it provides the SCF aim to make cricket accessible to all.

Sussex Cricket Fireworks Night presented by Domestic & General will light up the night skies once again this Tuesday 5th November.


Buy your tickets before 5pm on Friday 18th October and save up to 50% on the standard ticket price. It’s the best way to get more bang (and crackle, fizz, whoosh and whizz!) for your buck.

With music and entertainment, the evening is one of the biggest, most spectacular displays for miles around and supports two fantastic local charities: Martlets Hospice and Sussex Cricket Foundation.
