Cricket World were delighted to visit Emirates Old Trafford for the Lancashire Lightening’s NatWest T20 Blast match against Northampton Steelbacks.
The ground itself is very accessible and we opted for the tram from Manchester Piccadilly to Old Trafford which drops you right at the doorstep of the stadium.
From there, it is less than a one-minute walk to where we situated for the afternoon; The Thomas Cook Terrace.
On arrival, the ticket check was quick and efficient and the Thomas Cook representatives were really helpful.
The atmosphere was excellent throughout the day and the glorious weather also helped!
We had a brilliant view from our ‘inflatable sofa’ directly facing mid-wicket and purchasing drinks and food was simple which added to the exclusive experience.
The Thomas Cook Terrace accommodates everyone of all ages and the picnic and drinks vouchers were a nice touch.
As a regular visitor to Old Trafford, the Thomas Cook Terrace was a part of the ground I had never been to and for a really good fan experience, it is definitely something I would do again.
Watching T20 cricket from the terrace was excellent and I can only imagine it would be the same for One-Day games as well as County Championship and England fixtures.
It is a must do for anyone fancying a day at the cricket!
