Reckon you could lead an all-star Falcons squad to Vitality Blast glory? Now you can prove it with The Cricket Draft! 

In partnership with the PCA, The Cricket Draft is back once again with the ‘Ultimate Fantasy Cricket Game’ for the upcoming 2022 Vitality Blast competition, beginning this week. It’s a free to play fantasy sports game that places you in the role of Head of Cricket; armed with a budget of £1.5million, you must pick a squad of at least 15 players, selecting a team of XI for each Gameweek.

Players then score points for your team based on their performances in The Blast matches. You can select from some of your Derbyshire Falcons heroes – who will make your squad?

You can sign up now, build your team and compete against friends and supporters from around the world. The game begins on Wednesday 25 May, so get your selections in now!

The Vitality Blast is back! And supporters can get their hands on this summer’s hottest tickets now. 

Mickey Arthur’s Falcons kick off their Vitality Blast campaign under The Incora County Ground lights against Birmingham Bears on Friday 27 May, when the likes of Leus du Plooy, Wayne Madsen, Shan Masood and George Scrimshaw will all be aiming to make the perfect start.

After a dramatic episode in 2021, the East Midlands Derby against Notts Outlaws returns on Friday 3 June, while the Falcons will be aiming to extend their Vitality Blast winning streak at Queen’s Park to four matches, when they take on Yorkshire Vikings to close out the BRM Solicitors Festival of Cricket, in association with Chesterfield Borough Council, on Saturday 18 June.

Buy Tickets

Demand is expected to be high across all fixtures, as we welcome capacity crowds back for the first full season since 2019, so supporters are urged to buy early to avoid missing out.

For the first-time-ever, Derbyshire will be operating reserved seating in the Showcase Cinema de Lux Family Zone, meaning families can secure seats together at the heart of the family fun for the biggest matches at The Incora County Ground.
