Manchester Originals Mosaic Revealed

A Manchester Originals mosaic has been revealed at Emirates Old Trafford ahead of the return of The Hundred this week, with local residents present for the unveiling.

The legacy artwork pays homage to the Manchester Originals home city, drawing inspiration from the region’s iconic architecture, music and sporting heritage.  As well as bringing to life the Manchester Originals’ striking monochrome brand, it features the Manchester worker bee, The Stone Roses’ lemon and a clever nod to the ‘Mancunian Way’ of doing things.

Local resident Craig Tranter, who has spent years raising funds for the Lancashire Cricket foundation with his support of the match day draws and lottery collections along with Old Trafford local Nosheen Saba, club secretary at Old Trafford Kings Cricket club, which was borne out of the Wicketz community programme, were present at the reveal.

Renowned local mosaic artist Mark Kennedy is responsible for the masterpiece, and was at Emirates Old Trafford to help unveil the mosaic ahead of the team’s first home game of the tournament against Northern Superchargers.

Now in its second season, The Hundred is a 100-ball cricket competition where eight star-studded men’s and women’s teams clash in an electrifying four-week tournament.

Kate Cross, Manchester Originals’ Women’s captain featured in the mosaic, said: “To see how so many fans in the region have embraced this new format for cricket and our team so quickly has been incredible. Manchester is more than our name, it’s our home, so to be part of a piece of art that captures that iconic Manchester spirit is a real honour.”
