With fixtures scheduled for Friday nights and weekends, seeing the Falcons in action has never been easier. With the likes of Wayne Madsen, Luis Reece and new signings Ross Whiteley and captain Samit Patel, there’s never been a better time to follow the Falcons.

Derbyshire’s Matchday Experience was named County Cricket’s best for 2022, as voted for by spectators from around the country, this was build on last year, and next season’s offering promises to be even better.

Drama, emotion and top-class cricket

T20 is a game where anything can happen, with world-class overseas talent on show, along with a who’s who of county cricket’s top performers, there’s always the potential for mind-blowing moments.

Wayne Madsen is a constant thorn in opposition bowling line-ups, having plundered a club-record 580 runs in the 2023 campaign. Brooke Guest and Aneurin Donald have the potential to take the game away from their opponents, while the aggression and innovation of opening pair Harry Came and Luis Reece are ever-reliable.

Pakistan seamer, Mohammad Amir, brings a wealth of experience at international and domestic level. He won the Champions Trophy in 2017 with Pakistan, and has gone on to win countless Twenty20 franchise tournaments around the globe.
