Six Pack Ticket
Six Pack Tickets are available allowing supporters to watch any six home days of cricket for just £76.
Supporters can choose any six home matches – NatWest T20 Blast, County Championship and/or Royal London One-Day Cup – to attend in 2016, simply by turning up on the day with your Six Pack Ticket to gain entry.
Six Pack holders wishing to attend the NatWest T20 Blast matches versus Notts Outlaws at Derby and Yorkshire Vikings at Chesterfield will be required to claim match tickets in advance, in return for a stamp on your Six Pack Ticket.
Supporters can make savings of £4 by purchasing matchday tickets in advance either online, over the phone or in person at the 3aaa Pavilion.
Further discounts remain in place for Under-16s and Students, while children under the age of 5 can attend any Derbyshire home fixture in 2015 for FREE.
NEW for 2016 – NatWest T20 Blast local derbies versus Notts Outlaws at Derby and Yorkshire Vikings at Chesterfield will be Category A fixtures. These are classified as traditionally the most popular and highest profile fixtures of the year and the Club advises supporters who wish to attend these matches to buy their tickets early to avoid disappointment.
All other home NatWest T20 Blast fixtures in 2016 are classed as Category B fixtures.
Local NatWest T20 Blast derbies versus Notts Outlaws and Yorkshire Vikings have been handed prime dates in 2016.
The Club is anticipating a capacity crowd for the local clash with Notts Outlaws, which will take place on Friday 24 June at The 3aaa County Ground.
The fixture against Yorkshire Vikings – which was an advance sell-out in 2015 – will bring the curtain down on next summer’s Chesterfield Festival of Cricket on Sunday 10 July.
The popular week-long festival at the picturesque Queen’s Park will once again feature two NatWest T20 Blast matches, starting on Sunday 3 July, and a traditional first-class fixture, which will this year be against Northamptonshire.
At Derby, meanwhile, the Club will host four Friday night NatWest T20 Blast matches in total, starting with the visit of Leicestershire Foxes on Friday 3 June.
Then at the height of summer, international cricket will return to the county when Sri Lanka A visit The 3aaa County Ground for a one-day Tour Match on Friday 15 July.
The county will also host first-class cricket throughout the summer, with at least one home County Championship game every month during the April to September campaign.
