Following the nationwide easing of restrictions from 19 July, the Club is pleased to confirm that we can welcome more supporters back to watching live cricket in Derbyshire.

While certain restrictions on supporters have eased, our priority is to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all spectators and therefore our cleanliness and staff procedures will remain the same.

Derbyshire County Cricket Club understands that within our supporter-base there will be different feelings regarding the easing of restrictions and while our regulations are designed to maintain a safe and enjoyable experience for all, we ask all supporters to respect each other and show consideration whilst at one of our venues. Thank you for your support.

Further details are outlined below:

  • Hand sanitiser will be provided at the entrance, along with points all around the ground, and we encourage all supporters to regularly sanitise where possible.
  • NHS Track & Trace: While it is no longer mandatory to support the NHS Track & Trace system, we encourage all supporters wishing to scan the NHS Track & Trace app to do so via the QR codes at the main Pavilion entrance.
  • Face coverings: Face coverings are no longer mandatory, however we respect the wishes of those supporters wanting to continue wearing a face covering and we do encourage supporters to wear a covering (unless medically exempt) when moving around the venue.
  • Hygiene: The Club encourages all supporters to maintain high standards of hygiene and hand sanitiser will be provided at all toilets, as well as within spectator areas. We ask spectators to respect other visitors and to cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing and wash your hands immediately afterwards. Derbyshire County Cricket Club staff will continue to wear a face covering (unless medically exempt) when serving supporters at catering facilities.

Cashless Venue

From the start of the 2021 season, Derbyshire will operate a cashless policy across all Club-managed points of sale on site – from ticket gates, to catering.

There are two reasons for this, the first being a proven increase in the speed of service when accepting card payments only and the second being hygiene as part of our commitment to keeping spectators and staff safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

All of our catering and bar tills will accept all major debit/credit cards, as well as contactless payment options, including Apple and Android Pay.


The Incora County Ground is located next to the Pentagon Roundabout just off the A52.

There are roadworks currently underway on Nottingham Road, with delays and queues likely, so supporters are advised to arrive early to avoid congestion.
