Club Membership for 2017 is only £139, if purchase before the end of the month. Reason to buy No.7: entry to first ever day/night first-class match in Derby.

Derbyshire will host its first ever day/night first-class game when West Indies visit The 3aaa County Ground from Friday 11 August.

The ECB announced that the three-day first-class fixture will be played under floodlights with a pink ball.

It will be the first floodlight first-class game in Derby, with the Test match at Edgbaston the following week also set to make history becoming the first day/night Test in the UK.

Subject to final confirmation with ICC, the hours of play will be 2pm to 9pm. Pink balls made by Dukes will be used and the players will wear traditional white first-class clothing.

Chief Executive, Simon Storey said: “We’re delighted to be asked to host this landmark fixture and supporting an innovative and exciting development for the game.

“It will be a great opportunity for cricket fans across Derbyshire and the East Midlands, who might have never watched a first-class fixture before, to enjoy a night of pink-ball cricket at the height of summer.”

Club Membership for the 2017 season includes this historic day/night first-class fixture versus West Indies.

It gets you entry to all home days of cricket (excluding quarter/semi-finals and the ICC Women’s World Cup) this summer for only £139, if purchased before midnight on 31 January Early Bird deadline.

The Early Bird Club Membership price represents a saving of up to 32% compared to 2016 full price. A great value package for a great summer.
