Lord’s Cricket Ground says its cricket hospitality will not be affected by its status as an official venue for the 2012 Games, when it will be occupied for six weeks as the Olympic home for archery.

Lord's hospitality packages include Test matches and One Day Internationals against South Africa and West Indies and a one day international against Australia.

Julie Bacon, Lord’s hospitality manager, said: "The number of pre-sale enquiries we have received ahead of the 2012 cricket season points to a healthy demand among corporates for entertaining options. The Natwest ODI against Australia in particular looks set to sell out within days as companies are eager to treat guests to a contest between old Ashes rivals."

Hospitality spaces include the Captains’ Lounge, where tables of up to 10 guests can be hosted by a former international captain.
