The £250,000 development, undertaken by Oval Events, is designed for entertaining and hospitality and will be situated on top of the ground’s OCS Stand. It will have capacity for 400 delegates.

Taking its name from the popular phrase ‘Corinthian Spirit’ - meaning sportsmanship - the Corinthian Roof Terrace will feature visual reminders of sporting occassions including the first rugby international in England and the inaugural FA Cup final between Wanderers and Royal Engineers.

Richard Gould, chief executive of Surrey County Cricket Club, said: "Our relationship with Keith Prowse dates back to 2004, and in that time the company has matched its exceptional service standards with the stature of the Kia Oval and the outstanding facilities we have at the ground."

Andrew Hodgkins, managing director of Keith Prowse, added: "We’re pleased to be launching such a remarkable hospitality and event space ahead of the eagerly anticipated Ashes Test Series. The Corinthian Roof Terrace benefits from spectacular views across London and unrivalled views of the cricket. It’s crucial to our business that we continue to enhance our offering to meet the expectations of our hospitality customers, and we look forward to welcoming guests once the redevelopment is complete."

Upcoming Kia Oval sporting events include the final Investec Ashes Test Match against Australia as well as a blend of One Day International cricket and super-paced T20 matches.
