The Warner Stand at Lord's Cricket Ground



Lord's Cricket Ground is not a stadium with a uniform amphitheatre of seating. Each stand that surrounds the playing area has its own identity, representative of the era in which it was designed. Fulfilling the brief of Marylebone Cricket Club (M.C.C.) in West London, Populous designed a new stand that is deliberately bold and contemporary in nature, whilst remaining sympathetic and sensitive to its place within the finest cricket ground in the world. 

Located between the Grade II*-listed Pavilion and the Grand Stand, the new Warner Stand delivers an enhanced spectator experience for members of M.C.C. and their guests and a significant upgrade to facilities within the stand. The building will also strenghtnen Lord's role in the local area, as the first building at Lord's to be specifically designed for cultural, community and private events on non-match days.

Through the stewardship of M.C.C., Lord's Cricket Ground has become one of the most important guardians of international sports architecture. However, the Ground also balances this heritage with its position as the 'Home of Cricket'.

As a result, a new Match Control Suite sits discreetly yet confidently within the new stand. Designed to exceed ICC (International Cricket Council) and ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) standards, it positions Lord's security and umpire facilities at the forefront of any currently available in world cricket.
