CRICKET - Warwickshire's Rugby Cricket Festival tickets on sale now

Leamington Editorial 30th Apr, 2024 Updated: 1st May, 2024   0

WARWICKSHIRE will be playing three games in Rugby for the first time in almost a decade this August with tickets on sale now.

The Rugby Cricket Festival will host three Metro Bank One Day Cup games against Surrey (Friday, August 2), Yorkshire (Sunday, August 11) and Nottinghamshire (Wednesday, August 14) with all matches to start at 11am.

Following the Member claim window, remaining tickets are now on sale at: with adult tickets only £15 while under-16’s go free. Members can also claim any guest passes from this date.

Rugby School last hosted Warwickshire in 2015 when the Bears won a One Day Cup clash against Sussex.

The ground has a 3,000-capacity, so only limited tickets are available and we encourage fans to purchase early.

Warwickshire performance director Gavin Larsen said: “We love playing at Edgbaston, obviously, but this is an amazing opportunity to take the Bears closer to members and supporters in Warwickshire.

“I was at Neath last season to watch the Bears take on Glamorgan and the vibe at the game was tremendous.

“I’m sure the fans and local community will create an equally great atmosphere at Rugby. It’s school summer holidays so hopefully there will be lots of junior Bears there to cheer the guys on.

“The facilities at Rugby School are superb and, importantly, the pitch and outfield will be at a standard required for professional cricket.”
