History: Frequently labelled 'the home of cricket', as it is owned by the sport's lawmakers, the Marylebone Cricket Club, the present Lord's site was founded in 1814 by Thomas Lord, although it was in fact the third ground to carry his name. In 1877 it also became the home of Middlesex County Cricket Club at the request of the MCC and by 1884 it was staging international cricket as well — two traditions which continue to this day. Six years later the iconic pavilion was built and this listed building will form a backdrop for the Olympic archers as they shoot their arrows across the square towards the space-age Media Centre. Spectators will be housed in two temporary stands on the outfield, thus cutting capacity by 21,500. Behind the pavilion is the MCC Museum, the world's oldest sporting museum, which houses a huge range of cricket artefacts, including the Ashes. Lord's is also home to English cricket's governing body, the England and Wales Cricket Board.
