“The redevelopment of Emirates Old Trafford will further enhance our reputation as a world-class venue for business, sport, and leisure. We’re looking forward to a successful completion of the project in 2023, which will help us achieve our vision of establishing Lancashire Cricket as the best cricket club in the world as we increase our overall capacity and improve the event-day experience for all venue visitors.
“Corinthian will be working with us during an incredibly exciting period which will kick off with an Ashes Test and a packed domestic schedule in 2023. The quality of the experience that Lancashire Cricket and Corinthian will offer to our hospitality guests is second to none, and we are immensely looking forward to working together once the new development is completed next year.”

“This is an extremely important and exciting part of the next couple of years for Corinthian Sports. We pride ourselves in providing unique premium events for our clients – with this brand-new agreement, we have the opportunity to create an experience within our Pegasus Lounge unlike any other in the hospitality industry.
“Having been established in London since 2010, with a rapidly growing office in Glasgow since 2019 and throughout a pandemic, it is a fantastic chance to bring the Pegasus Lounge to one of the most iconic international venues in the North of England. Alongside this, it is a great opportunity to embed ourselves in the local community, open an office in Manchester and create local jobs. This is something we are incredibly passionate about and immensely proud of.
“With The Pegasus Lounge already present at major international rugby, motorsports and horse racing events across Europe, this agreement with Emirates Old Trafford is the perfect time and venue at which to launch our first Pegasus lounge at a cricket venue.
“At Corinthian Sports, our passion is to excite people and businesses, so they engage through premium experiences to enhance relationships, deliver growth and energise organisations. We couldn’t ask to work with a better cricket club in the world right now to do this with and we firmly believe this next phase of Corinthian’s growth will help establish us as THE premium hospitality provider of choice in the North of England and beyond.”
