England’s Test cricket grounds

Rather than having a small number of grounds for Test cricket, as Australia does, England has a larger number and awards Tests after a bidding process. As the criteria are heavily weighted towards financial returns, this has a knock-on effect on ticket prices, as grounds awarded a Test need to recoup their losses.

Another downside of this system is that the money that the ECB earns from ticket sales is ploughed back into a greater number of grounds.
