The 11 venues for the women's version of The Hundred have been announced.

The eight franchises will not play most of their games at the Test match venues being used by the men when the tournament begins next year, and instead will be based at a variety of county and club grounds. 

Western Fire will be located at Bristol and Taunton, with Worcester housing Birmingham Phoenix. Northern Superchargers will move between York and South Northumberland, while London Spirit will be based in Chelmsford and Northampton.

London Invincibles will make Beckenham their home, Trent Rockets will play their games at Derby and Leicester, and Hove will host Southern Brave.

Manchester Originals' home ground has yet to be determined. The names of the franchises have yet to be formally confirmed by the ECB.

 

Beth Barrett-Wild, head of the women's competition - The Hundred, said: "We're delighted to be able to take the women's competition to a number of excellent venues around the country.

"The venues for the men's and women's competitions respectively are working together incredibly closely and that connection will help The Hundred inspire more people to attend, watch and play cricket.

"It's particularly exciting that the women's competition will be seen by fans across all 18 first-class counties, this represents a huge opportunity to grow women's cricket - while the double-headers at the men's venues provide another chance to present the men's and women's teams on the same platform.

"Many of the venues for the women's competition have an excellent track record in supporting and nurturing the women's game and we look forward to that continuing across The Hundred."
