Over 20% of tickets for the Vitality Blast local derby versus Yorkshire Vikings at Chesterfield have already been sold – less than a week since going on general sale.

The Club has received high demand for the local derby, with over 1,000 tickets already reserved for the clash at Queen’s Park on Saturday 28 July.

Last year, the fixture was a complete advance sell out as 5,000 supporters watched Derbyshire Falcons claim a thrilling victory over the Vikings.

The Club is encouraging supporters to purchase their tickets early to secure their place. Early purchasers will also save money with our advance ticket offer, while further discounts are available for groups of 10 or more.

Members and Six Pack Ticket holders are reminded that they are required to claim their ticket, at no extra charge, in advance for this match.

The fixture is part of the Custom Solar Chesterfield Festival of Cricket, in association with Chesterfield Borough Council which runs from Sunday 22 July to Saturday 28 July.

Chief Executive, Simon Storey said: “We received terrific support in 2017, with more people than ever watching Vitality Blast 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. And we’re delighted with the response we have already received for 2018.

“We expect this match to sell out again this summer and are advising supporters to purchase their tickets early to avoid disappointment.”
