Yorkshire have announced a new agreement which will ensure that country cricket continues to be played at Scarborough's North Marine Road ground until at least 2010.
The five-year-deal, which is dependant on the ground being maintained to first-class standards, will provide for two four-day and two one-day games each season.
"We believe the relationship between the two clubs is as good as it has ever been," said Bill Mustoe, the Scarborough chairman. "By sharing expertise, we welcome the partnership which will considerably enhance the financial arrangements of both parties".
Yorkshire first played at Scarborough in 1874 and the ground became synonymous with end-of-season festivals. It has also hosted two one-day internationals, against West Indies in 1976 and New Zealand in 1978, and five women's Tests.
