Vitality Blast tickets for 2018 will go on general sale at 10am on Thursday 1 March.

Derbyshire, featuring world’s number one Twenty20 bowler Mitchell Santner, will host seven Vitality Blast fixtures in 2018.

Local derbies against Yorkshire Vikings and Notts Outlaws have once again been handed prime dates, as the Club looks to secure sell-out crowds for both in 2018.

Last year, the clash versus Yorkshire at Queen’s Park sold out five days in advance, and demand is once again expected to be high for the clash at Chesterfield on Saturday 28 July.

The East Midlands derby against Notts Outlaws, meanwhile, has been given a prime Friday night slot at the height of summer, taking place on Friday 13 July.

Derbyshire begin their home Vitality Blast campaign versus Lancashire Lightning on Friday 6 July and face Leicestershire Foxes in the final home group stage fixture on Saturday 11 August.

The Falcons enjoyed a record 2017 Twenty20 campaign, reaching a first quarter-final since 2005 and the first ever at home.

Chief Executive, Simon Storey said: “We received terrific support in 2017, with more people than ever watching Twenty20 cricket in Derbyshire.

“The local derby versus Yorkshire at Chesterfield is always a special occasion and we had unprecedented demand last summer with the fixture selling out well in advance.

“Both local derbies have once again been given great dates in 2018 and we’re hoping local people will once again get behind the Falcons and we can secure a double sell-out.”
