Derbyshire’s fixtures for the 2020 season have been released, with more weekend cricket spanning all three domestic competitions next summer.

In total, Derbyshire will play 17 days of home weekend and Bank Holiday cricket in 2020, with all but one home County Championship match spanning a weekend.

The club, which celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2020, will begin the four-day campaign with the visit of Leicestershire to The Pattonair County Ground, starting on Sunday 19 April.

Following trips to Lord’s and Trent Bridge, Billy Godleman’s side return to Derby for home matches against Durham and Sussex, two sides against which they tasted victory in 2019.

The Vitality Blast begins earlier next summer, as The Falcons get underway in the North Group on Friday 29 May, at home to Leicestershire Foxes.

The clash is the first of seven home group stage fixtures, all given prime evening and weekend slots as Derbyshire aim to build on last year’s Finals Day appearance.

After record crowds supported The Falcons in 2019, including back-to-back home sell-outs against local rivals Yorkshire Vikings and Notts Outlaws, both fixtures again come at the height of the competition.

The East Midlands rivalry will be reignited on Friday 5 June under the lights at Derby, before Derbyshire host Yorkshire Vikings at Queen’s Park, Chesterfield, on Saturday 20 June.

The fixture against Yorkshire sold out in advance for a third-straight summer in 2019, while the local derby against near-neighbours Notts achieved a record crowd and the first sell-out between the sides since 2013.

Prior to the visit of the Vikings, Derbyshire face Worcestershire in a County Championship match at the picturesque Queen’s Park to begin the week-long Chesterfield Festival of Cricket, in association with Chesterfield Borough Council.

For the first time since 2015, Derbyshire will face southern counties in the newly-structured Royal London Cup, with Glamorgan and Surrey joining Yorkshire and Warwickshire in travelling to Derbyshire.

The List A visit by Yorkshire will be the sixth day of cricket in Chesterfield next summer, while Surrey arrive at The Pattonair County Ground on Sunday 9 May.

Chief Executive, Ryan Duckett, said: “We are very pleased to be playing more weekend cricket in 2020, allowing more people to support Derbyshire across all formats.

“Next year promises to be a special occasion for Members, supporters and everyone associated with Derbyshire as we celebrate the club’s 150th anniversary.

“As part of the celebrations, we are proud to offer a Membership which gives supporters better value for their money at Derbyshire. As well as just under 40 days of regular-season home cricket at The Pattonair County Ground and Chesterfield, we have included a host of exclusive added benefits.

“At just £169 during our Early Bird Window, it is one of the most competitively priced packages in county cricket and the best-value way to watch Derbyshire in 2020.

“As well as our core Membership, we also saw record numbers of supporters backing Derbyshire during the Vitality Blast last summer and with seven home games all handed prime evening and weekend slots, we expect to see demand for tickets surpass that of previous seasons.”
