Matthew Hoggard Joins Venatour
We are delighted to announce that England’s 2005 Ashes-winning legend Matthew Hoggard MBE has joined Venatour as our Cricket Ambassador.
Hoggard played 67 Test Matches for England taking 248 wickets, including a hat-trick against West Indies in 2004 and 12 wickets in a game against South Africa the following year.
Talking of the move, the former Yorkshire fast bowler said “I am excited to be joining Venatour as their Ambassador while getting involved and growing the cricket tours that they offer. Touring Australia was always a highlight of mine as a player so I am looking forward to heading back down under for the Ashes series in 2021/22 with Venatour and their clients for what promises to be a great trip.”

As well as The Ashes, Venatour are also excited to be heading to the West Indies in 2022 for England’s spring tour.
With Hoggy’s reputation as one of cricket’s biggest characters, he’ll be inviting a whole host of cricket stars to join the clients out on tour.
Venatour was established by Bath and England Rugby legend Gareth Chilcott and offers supporters a personal tour experience to all the major sporting events around the world, including the British & Irish Lions Tour, Rugby World Cup, Ashes, Wimbledon and Formula 1.
Chilcott said “It’s great to have someone like Hoggy involved with Venatour. He’s got a great personality and lots of friends in cricket which will be perfect for our clients travelling to Australia for the Ashes in 2021/22. There’s nothing like following England in the Ashes with the atmosphere and rivalry being second to none”
