KIDS GO FREE TO CRICKET THIS SUMMER

— 25 July 2013

Free kids tickets to selected matches this summer with first ever national promotion during school holidays.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has today announced that all 18 First Class Counties and Scotland will offer free tickets to children attending Yorkshire Bank 40 games between 2nd and 26th August 2013.


A total of 31 games will be available free of charge for any child visiting any of the selected matches with a paying adult* as part of a ground-breaking ECB initiative which aims to attract more youngsters to watch live cricket at their local county during the school holidays.


The promotion starts with Surrey’s match against Essex Eagles at the Kia Oval on Friday 2nd August and closes with the last round of group matches on August Bank Holiday Monday (26th) with teams fighting it out to qualify for the semi-finals.


David Collier, ECB Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to offer this unique opportunity to young cricket fans this summer as we look to take advantage of the increased interest cricket enjoys during an Ashes summer.


“I would encourage any parent whose child may be interested in the sport to get down to their local County ground and experience the game live during the school holidays. “
