The 1924 County Championship was the 31st officially organised running of the County Championship. Yorkshire County Cricket Club won the championship title for the third successive year.[1]

Final placings were still decided by calculating the percentage of points gained against possible points available but the points for a win on first innings drawn matches reverted to three points and in a match lost to one point, the matches Warwicks vs Notts, Surrey vs Essex, Leics vs Surrey, Somerset vs Essex and Glamorgan vs Somerset were all abandoned without a ball being bowled.[2]
