The year 2021 is a special one in the rich history of The Cricketer as the title celebrates its centenary.

We are the world's oldest and best-selling cricket magazine and have been the voice of cricket since our birth, creating passionate, relevant and inclusive content.

We pride ourselves in our comprehensive coverage of men's and women's cricket, from the county game to major international tournaments to the village green.

Our centenary issue, celebrating the finest century ever made, will be published on March 26: a bumper 160-page special edition that features highlights from the last 100 years and is set to be a collectors’ item.

Alongside this special issue, we have been planning a series of events throughout the year and possibly into 2022.

These include county roadshows, with a gala dinner and an exhibition also pencilled in for Lord's. Dates will be confirmed in due course as and when the social distancing guidance relaxes and the pandemic eases.

We are also producing a centenary film which will tell the story of The Cricketer from its inception in 1921 through to this year's special birthday.

The film, hosted by editor and award-winning broadcaster Simon Hughes, will chart the development of the magazine, shining the spotlight on its editors and the evolving world of publishing, and showcasing how The Cricketer covered some of the biggest issues of the day. 

To keep up to date with our centenary, please follow our social media channels and of course, pick up a copy of The Cricketer magazine.
