Parking

The Club operates up to three Car Parks on matchdays:

– Main Pavilion Car Park & Run-Through (A): Executive Members, Seasonal Car Park Pass Holders, Accessibility Car Park Tickets

– Frank Whittle Overflow Car Park (B): Additional parking via the Sir Frank Whittle Road entrance

– The Racecourse Car Park (C): Off St Mark’s Road (DE21 6AL). T20 and high-attendance matches only.

Accessible Car Parking: Accessible Car Parking spaces are available in the Pavilion car park and via the run-through and stewards will direct cars to a designated accessible parking bay.

As with Match Tickets, we encourage all those who require Accessible Car Parking to book in advance of the fixture.

Accessible Parking can be pre-purchased until 5pm the day before the matchday by calling 01332 388 101 during our opening hours (Mon-Fri 9am – 5pm), or by emailing [email protected] to request a call-back.

All Accessible Car Parking which is not purchased in advance will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

New for the 2023 season, the Club will introduce a specific season-long Accessible Car Park Pass, available to purchase at the same cost as a Car Park Pass to enable supporters to guarantee a disabled bay at each regular-season Derbyshire home matchday.

Match Tickets

We recommend all supporters book in advance of the matchday to guarantee their tickets.

Supporters can purchase Match Tickets online HERE.

Viewing Areas

Supporters can take advantage of a variety of viewing areas at The County Ground, with the majority easily accessible via level paths and grassed areas.

This includes much of the perimeter boundary fencing in front of the main Seat Unique Falcons Stand, as well as the Grandstand.

New for the 2023 season, supporters can reserve designated accessible viewing areas (photographed below) for Vitality Blast matches.

The numbered accessible viewing bays are located on the Grandstand and in front of the main Falcons Stand. To book an accessible viewing bay, which can be reserved alongside a match ticket for a T20 fixture in Derby, please email [email protected], or call 01332 388 101.

Toilets

Accessible Toilets are located on the ground floor of the Pavilion, close to the accessible parking bays, and within the Elite Performance Centre, close to the Grandstand.

New for 2023, the Club opened a state-of-the-art Changing Places toilet, and additional disabled toilet, at the back of the Main Stand.

Hearing loop

The Club has introduced two new Hearing Loops at The County Ground – one in Main Reception and the other in the Members’ Lounge, with the aim of improving our communication with hard-of-hearing spectators and visitors. Please look out for the Hearing Loop sign on your visit.

Queen’s Park, Chesterfield

Please note, the above information relates to The County Ground, Derby only. Ahead of the annual BRM Chesterfield Festival of Cricket, which will return in 2024, the Club will update this page with relevant venue information, which will also be included in the Matchday Guide.

We are constantly striving to improve our facilities for all. If you require any further information, or have suggestions for how the Club can develop its accessibility facilities, please contact our Accessibility Liaison Officer, Lily Smith, via [email protected], or by calling 01332 388 101.
