Northamptonshire County Cricket Club is one of the 18 major county clubs which make up the English and Welsh domestic cricket structure, representing the historic county of Northamptonshire. Its limited overs team is called the Northants Steelbacks. The traditional club colour is Maroon. During the 2010 season, the club had different shirts sponsors for each format of the game. First class games were sponsored by AJN Steelstock and one day games including Twenty20 by Old Speckled Hen.

The club plays the majority of its games at the County Cricket Ground, Northampton, but has used outlier grounds at Kettering, Wellingborough, Finedon and Peterborough (formerly considered part of Northamptonshire, but now in Cambridgeshire) in the past. It has also used grounds outside the county, at Luton, Tring and Milton Keynes, for one-day games.

During the 2011 season, Northamptonshire played in Division 2 of the LV=County Championship, Group B of the Clydesdale Bank 40 League and the Northern Division of the revamped Friends Provident T20.
