Modern Slavery Statement - Kia Oval Skip to main content

Modern Slavery


Surrey County Cricket Club was formed in 1845 and is one of the most historic sports clubs in the United Kingdom. We first won the County Championship in 1890 and have since lifted the most prestigious trophy in English domestic cricket twenty times, most recently in 2018. Surrey County Cricket Club is very special as it is owned by its Members, with the governance of the Club set out in the Club Rules. The Club’s Members elect a General Committee to represent their interests in the management of the Club’s activities, responsibility for which is fully delegated to the Board.

Surrey County Cricket Club is dedicated to conducting its business consistent with the highest standards of business ethics. We are committed not only to our cricket team but to our employees, shareholders, customers, suppliers, community representatives and other business contacts to be honest, fair and forthright in all of our business activities. In accordance with this ethical approach, we do not tolerate modern slavery or human trafficking in our organisation or in our supply chain. As a Member’s Club, maximising profit is not our primary objective, and we believe that modern slavery, a brutal way of producing goods and services at lower costs, is immoral, and always will be, wrong.
