The Phoenix will then be back at home for the first of three more double-headers on Tuesday 6 August, taking on Northern Superchargers, before their final two matchdays, on Monday 12 August against Trent Rockets and Thursday 15 August versus Manchester Originals.

The competition itself will start on Tuesday 23 July, with Phoenix heading to South London to play Oval Invincibles in the the first of 34 matchdays across 26 days of compelling sport at the height of summer.

A record 580,000 fans were in venues across The Hundred in 2023, including over 300,000 in the women’s competition. The Hundred’s blend of high-quality sport and entertainment saw 41% of all tickets sold to families, 23% to juniors and 30% to women.

Alongside world-class cricket, thanks to The Hundred’s ongoing partnership with BBC Music Introducing, fans were treated to memorable music performances from a diverse line-up of artists and DJs including headliners Rudimental, the Lottery Winners, DYLAN and Prima Queen.

Supporters who have been season ticket holders in any of the three years of The Hundred or who bought a ticket in 2023 will be able to buy a season ticket from today.

Birmingham Phoenix and England Men’s batter Moeen Ali said: “It’s always an amazing experience to play cricket in front of our fans at home in Birmingham, especially captaining the side in The Hundred. I am really looking forward to this year’s tournament. I think the competition had a really strong year last year, it’s so clear on matchdays that The Hundred is attracting new fans. Hopefully we can push forward on the pitch this summer.”

The Hundred Draft, powered by Sage, will be back across both the men’s and the women’s competitions ahead of the 2024 summer as the 16 teams – including Andrew Flintoff’s Northern Superchargers men’s team – prepare their bids for The Hundred title.

For the first time, selection in the women’s competition will now take place exclusively through retention, The Hundred Draft and the Vitality Wildcard Draft. Salaries in the women's competition have increased by £100,000 per team, with the top salary bracket now at £50,000.

All games will again be live on Sky Sports and BBC broadcast and digital channels throughout the competition.
