England & Wales Cricket Board: Project Screen

On-site testing for International teams

International cricket presents a unique set of conditions in the world of COVID-19 testing. The international visiting team needs to be tested at every juncture to minimise the risk of outbreak and train under closely controlled conditions.

Key stats

4 bio-secure sites live

800 tests per week

200 participants per site

Project objectives


Project Screen by Prenetics had to create a safe environment for international teams to train and play at test match locations across the country, starting with the Ageas Bowl.

The process


Semi-permanent drive-through testing stations were setup in the car parks of major cricket venues including Old Trafford and the Ageas Bowl to test venue staff and teams. Mobile testing units were also used to facilitate the ongoing testing of broadcast staff within the grounds.
