Tickets for all of Derbyshire’s Vitality Blast home fixtures are now on sale, with a summer of explosive action ahead. 

The Falcons will host seven matches on prime weekend and evening dates throughout May, June and July, as they aim to reach Finals Day for the second year in a row.

We take a look at some of the reasons to buy tickets this summer.

Underestimated No More

Prior to last season, Derbyshire were the only county not to appear at Vitality Blast Finals Day, but that all changed in September 2019.

After picking up seven wins in the North Group, including victories over Lancashire, Leicestershire, Worcestershire and a double over Yorkshire, Billy Godleman’s side went on to beat Gloucestershire in the quarter-final.

Ravi Rampaul finished as the tournament’s leading wicket-taker, while the top order of Godleman, Luis Reece, Wayne Madsen and Leus du Plooy struck a club-record 14 half-centuries between them.

With Dominic Cork returning as Twenty20 Head Coach, along with the overseas signings of Sean Abbott and Ben McDermott, the Falcons will be looking to challenge for silverware in 2020.

The biggest clashes 

From the East Midlands Derby, to Yorkshire Vikings at Queen’s Park, the Falcons will compete in some huge matches this summer.

More than 1,500 tickets have been sold for the Yorkshire fixture on Saturday 20 June after record sales during the Priority Window, after selling out for the last three seasons.

And after selling out for the first time since 2013 last year, demand is again high for the East Midlands Derby on Friday 5 June at The Pattonair County Ground.
