The Bristol County Ground will have three matches will be played in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, doubling the number of Men's World Cup games the ground has held - one in 1983 and two in 1999.

In the recent past, the Bristol County Ground hosted eight matches at the ICC Women's World Cup 2017, including England's semi-final win over South Africa.

The ground came into existence in 1889, and was bought by the legendary English cricketer WG Grace, as he was a neighbour. The Bristol County Ground has since changed ownership quite a few time until reverting to the Gloucestershire County Cricket Club in 2004 with the county calling it home for nearly 130 years.
