Budleigh Salterton Cricket Club is being relocated after nearly 100 years at their Ottermouth home.
The move of the club to a new home on the northern edge of the town is required as part of a £9m scheme to help restore the River Otter and to help avoid a "catastrophic breach" of the failing 200-year-old sea defences.
Greg Evans, chairman of Budleigh Salterton Cricket Club, said: “Everyone in the area knows that for years we have faced problems with flooding at Ottermouth, so we would very much welcome a solution which would mean we could use our facilities year-round."
The Lower Otter Restoration Project is investigating the possibility of restoring the estuary to a more natural state, reducing the impact of climate change while creating new habitats for wildlife and improving water quality.
The preferred option for the project, led by landowner Clinton Devon Estates and the Environment Agency, would see the Big and Little Marsh floodplain restored.
Breaches would be created in the Little Bank, the Big Bank and the River Otter Embankment, allowing water to flow through.
It will mean the relocation of Budleigh Salterton Cricket Club, but if plans are approved, the club could be playing at their new home in time for the 2022 season.
