Tamworth Veterans Cricket has secured a game against the touring England over-60s team.
The game will be held as a day-nighter at No.1 Oval on November 29.
The "local" team will be a Northern NSW lineup.
It will include players from Lismore, Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, New England, Quirindi and Tamworth.
The Friday match will be a 45-over affair, commencing at 3pm.
"And we are hoping to see plenty of local cricketers checking out the older age groups," said Greg Kellett, Tamworth Veterans Cricket spokesman.
"This will be the first international team to play in Tamworth for 23 years. Hopefully this will lead to more exciting matches."
Kellett said the 2019/20 season would be be "huge for Tamworth veterans" - commencing with this match.
In February, up to eight teams would compete in an over-67s two-day carnival in the city.
In April, the prestigious Cooper/Finlay Cup State of Origin between NSW and Queensland will be staged in the region.
Kellett said that tournament would lure up to 240 players. "This is so big we have had to engage the Gunnedah and Quirindi grounds to cater for the influx," he added.
