Ever since 1845 Surrey CCC has been based at The Oval, a stadium iconic the world over for its history and unique ownership by the Duchy of Cornwall, HRH Prince Charles. Away from Cricket some say The Oval is where English Sport was founded. In addition to being the birthplace of the Ashes, in 1870 the ground hosted the first ever International football match in England between England and Scotland. Two years later in 1872 it hosted both the first ever FA Cup final and the auld enemy came together again this time in a Rugby Union fixture.
