Derbyshire County Cricket Club is expecting a near-capacity crowd for the Super Sunday fixture versus Yorkshire Vikings on Sunday 12 June at Queen’s Park.

The Royal London One-Day Cup match, which was added to provide supporters even more cricket at the picturesque out-ground in 2016, has received high interest with just over three weeks to go.

Tickets are available and the best value can be gained by purchasing in advance of the day of the game online at or by calling 0871 350 1870.

In total, there will be seven days of county action at Queen’s Park next summer, beginning with the 50-over fixture with neighbours Yorkshire in June.

The annual cricketing festival follows, beginning on Sunday 3 July, which will once again include a traditional first-class fixture and two NatWest T20 Blast fixtures in the space of seven days.

The festival concludes on Sunday 10 July with a second local clash versus Yorkshire Vikings, this time in the NatWest T20 Blast – a fixture that sold out in advance in 2015.

Chief Executive, Simon Storey said: “It was a record year at Chesterfield in 2015 and we’re delighted to now be able to offer even more cricket at the picturesque ground.

“The support has always been great at Queen’s Park, especially for the local fixtures against Yorkshire. A lot of away supporters travel down from north of the county border creating a unique atmosphere and a special event for Members and supporters.

“The NatWest T20 Blast fixture in 2015 was a complete sell out and we’re expected similarly high-interest for both matches in 2016.”
