Its limited overs team is called the Surrey Lions.The club is the most financially secure first class county club, with a turnover of £25.5 million in 2009.
The club's home since its foundation in 1845 has been The Oval cricket ground (currently known officially as the 'Brit Oval' following a sponsorship deal with the Brit insurance company), within the Kennington area of Lambeth in south London. Some home games each season are also played at Whitgift School, Croydon and at Woodbridge Road, Guildford. In the past matches have been played at Banstead, Reigate, Kingston and Godalming. Byfleet, Sutton, Leatherhead and Sunbury on Thames have staged List 'A' matches. The Metropolitan Police Sports Club Ground in East Molesey has been used in the Twenty20 Cup.
The traditional club colours are chocolate brown and silver. The club badge is the Prince of Wales' three feathers. Lord Rosebery obtained the permission to use this symbol from the Prince of Wales, owner of the land on which The Oval stands, in 1915.
