Derbyshire Falcons’ opening home NatWest T20 Blast fixture versus Yorkshire Vikings on Saturday 8 July at Chesterfield is now a complete sell out. 

The Club has received huge demand for the popular local derby at Queen’s Park, with over 4,000 supporters purchasing their matchday tickets in advance.

It’s the second time in three years the fixture at Chesterfield has sold out in advance.

Only matchday ticket holders, Members who have claimed in advance and Six Pack Ticket holders, will be able to gain entry into the ground. Tickets will not be available to buy on the day.

Chief Executive, Simon Storey said: “The local derby is always the highlight of our week in Chesterfield and we’re delighted with the response we have received. The demand for tickets continues to grow year on year.

“Queen’s Park is a beautiful venue and whilst some fans will be disappointed they have not be able to get a ticket, the safety and comfort of spectators is our top priority.

“To ensure all visitors enjoy a great day with us, additional chairs have been ordered, a higher number of safety stewards will be on duty and additional bars and toilets are already in place.

“It promises to be a great occasion to close this year’s Custom Solar Chesterfield Festival of Cricket and I know the team will enjoy playing in front of a packed house.”

Councillor Steve Brunt, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for town centres and visitor economy, said: “It is great news that the Yorkshire game is a sell-out. It shows the interest in Chesterfield and surrounding areas for having top class cricket in the town.

“We look forward to welcoming supporters of both sides to the game, with the benefits that will bring to local businesses and the local economy.”

Supporters with matchday tickets are encouraged to plan their journeys in advance and give plenty of time to arrive at the ground. Gates will open earlier than advertised at 12noon.

Please do not arrive at the ground if you do not have a matchday ticket.
