The County Cricket Ground, also known as the County Ground for sponsorship reasons,[1] is a cricket venue in Hove, East Sussex, England. The County Ground is the home of Sussex County Cricket Club, where most Sussex home matches since 1872 have been played, although many other grounds in Sussex have been used. Sussex CCC continue to play some of their games away from The County Ground, at either Arundel Castle and Horsham. The ground has also hosted 1 ODI;[2] The match was part of the 1999 Cricket World Cup in England, and South Africa beat India by 4 wickets.[3]

It is one of the few county grounds to have deckchairs for spectators [4] - which are in the colours of Sussex CCC - blue and white.
