Yorkshire county cricket Club
Founded in 1863, Yorkshire County Cricket Club is one of the most successful cricket clubs of all times. It has won 33 County Championship titles, the most recent being in 2015. Yorkshire has fielded some of the world's greatest players including Len Hutton, Geoff Boycott, Ray Illingworth and Joe Root, England's current captain. Headingley was first established as a cricket ground in 1888 and is the only ground that Yorkshire have owned. Described as " a soft, green cricket glove gripping a ball", the iconic Headingley Carnegie Pavilion was opened in 2010. There are now plans to invest a further £35m in improvements including a new combined cricket and rugby stand.
