This week, Derbyshire return to first-class action at The Incora County Ground for the first time since September 2019, when they take on Worcestershire in an LV= County Championship fixture.

The match, in line with the current government guidelines, will be held behind closed doors and we ask supporters to not travel to the ground.

While everyone associated with the Club is looking forward to welcoming our Members and supporters back to watching live cricket, we must adhere to the current government guidelines, which are outlined below.

Step 3: 17 May – Crowds permitted in reduced numbers

The next phase of the government’s roadmap, currently planned for 17 May, will permit the return of spectators. Until that date, all fixtures across County Cricket (excluding any pilots) will be held without crowds.

Derbyshire’s first home fixture after that date starts on Thursday 20 May against Durham and entry to the first-class fixture will be exclusive to Members, due to a heavily restricted socially-distanced capacity compared to Membership numbers and anticipated demand.

Membership remains the best-value way to watch Derbyshire, while Members will have priority entry to all home fixtures in 2021.

Membership Packs are being sent out throughout April and current Members can expect to receive theirs by the end of the first week in May.

The Club will provide further updates as they become available from the government and ECB.

*All dates are subject to change and the return of crowds to sporting events is dictated by government guidelines.
