Paul Collingwood Pavilion

Durham County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that Emirates Riverside’s South West Terrace has been officially renamed the Paul Collingwood Pavilion in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the club.

The Pavilion, which also incorporates the Castle View & Cathedral Suites, will be renamed in honour of the all-rounder’s 23-year service to Durham CCC.

The unveiling will take place ahead of Durham’s opening Royal London One-Day Cup match against Yorkshire Vikings tomorrow at Emirates Riverside.

Currently the Club’s first-class captain, the pavilion re-naming will honour the most successful player to ever have played for Durham.

With 11,777 first-class runs, Collingwood is the leading first-class run-scorer in our history & has appeared in 218 first-class matches, more than anyone else.

He lifted the 2013 County Championship title & also played a significant role in the Royal London One-Day Cup victory at Lord’s a year later.

Collingwood played 68 Test matches for England, scoring 4,259 runs at an average of over 40 & produced a number of outstanding performances, scoring a memorable double century during the 2006/07 Ashes series in Australia – the first English batsman to score a double ton in Australia for 78 years.

He played 197 times in One-Day Internationals, which remains more than any other player, and is still the only England cricket captain to have lifted a global trophy when they won the ICC World T20 in 2010.

The unveiling will take place shortly after the coin toss at tomorrow’s match.
