Be there to experience one of the Vitality Blast’s most intense rivalries, as Derbyshire Falcons host Notts Outlaws at The Incora County Ground on Friday 9 June 2023. 

The fixture will see two coaching heavyweights of the game, Mickey Arthur and Peter Moores, pit their wits against each other, as some of county cricket’s best players go head-to-head under the lights in Derby.

The atmosphere is always electric for this fixture, which has seen a number of tense finishes and standout individual performances, with every ball counting in this East Midlands Derby.

There will be mouthwatering action on the field, but if you’re hungry for more, a wide variety of food and drinks will be available, from savoury snacks to tasty treats to satisfy all tastebuds.

The Showcase Cinema de Lux Family Zone also returns for 2023, with allocated seating and a host of fun activites for the whole family, in partnership with the Derbyshire Cricket Foundation.

Last year, the Falcons won a Club-record nine Vitality Blast games to finish joint-top of the North Group and progress to a third quarter-final in six seasons, while Notts Outlaws will be looking to bounce after failing to progress from the group in 2022.


With Derbyshire’s all-time leading T20 run-scorer, Wayne Madsen, legendary Sri Lankan fast bowler, Suranga Lakmal, and a pair of England Lions in Sam Conners and George Scrimshaw, the Falcons will be looking to go toe-to-toe with a Notts side containing England internationals, such as Alex Hales, Ben Duckett and Ollie Stone.
