We’re thrilled you’re joining us on Friday to take your place in Headingley’s history and be part of world class cricket. Here’s some information we thought you might find useful.
Tickets have now sold out and we are expecting a full crowd at Headingley, please arrive early to ensure plenty of time to find your seats. The gates will open at 8:15am and play will start at 10:15am.
GETTING TO HEADINGLEY
Park and Ride: Anyone wishing to drive to Headingley is advised to park at Leeds City Council’s ‘Park and Ride/Stride’ located at Beckett Park. Bus service is provided and is a five minute ride. Alternatively, it’s a casual 15 minute stroll through Headingley. The route is clearly signposted. Prices are £10 for a car, £20 for a minibus, £30 for a coach. Postcode: LS6 3PZ The bus service will start at 8am and will run intermittently until a designated time after close of play.
DIRECTIONS FOR DRIVERS:
From the M1 South leave at J43 and take the M621 to J2. Follow signs for Beckett Park along the A643.
From the M62 West leave at J27 and take the M621 to J2. Follow signs for Beckett Park along the A643.
From the M62 East leave at J29 and take the M621 to J2. Follow signs for Beckett Park along the A643.
From Bradford, Skipton and the North, take either of two routes, the motorways as above or via the A6110/A6120/A63 which will all lead to the Leeds Outer Ring Road. From there join the A660 Otley Road and this will take you south towards Beckett Park.
Taking either route will ensure you avoid the busy city centre, which will be particularly busy due to planned roadworks from Farsley/Rodley. Due to these planned roadworks, we are advising all guests to avoid Kirkstall Road. Please travel via Otley Road(via the city loop)/Cardian Road or Burley Road if you are driving to Beckett Park from the city centre.
From Leeds City Station catch a connecting train to Headingley Station or Burley Park Station. We recommend Burley Park Station which has a less of an incline to the stadium. Both are similar walking distance and will take approximately 10 minutes. The train fare is approximately £2.00 return from Leeds City Station. Click here for updated train travel information.
A taxi will drop you outside the ground, please request either Kirkstall Lane (for Gates G/H/F) or St Michaels Lane for all other entrances. Prices will vary but range from approximately £7 – £20 and will take approximately 15 minutes from Leeds city centre.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE
For West Stand, North Stand and Trueman Enclosure please use the Kirkstall Lane entrances.
For East Stand, North East Stand, Main Stand and Old Pavilion please use the St Michaels Lane entrances.
Gates open at 08:15am on Friday morning.
If you have a spare moment, drop into our Yorkshire County Cricket Club Museum behind the East Stand to get an insight into Yorkshire’s 150 years of history. Featuring memorabilia from cricketers throughout the ages, it should be on any cricket fan’s agenda.
Don’t forget to get your gear to show off when you get home. The Club Shop on St Michaels Lane before you enter the ground and the Club Shop behind the West Stand will showcase England replica clothing and Yorkshire kits from this season, plus mementos and 150th anniversary goodies to help you remember your day. You’ll be able to grab scorecards from each shop, in the Match Day Office in the Museum, or with the programme sellers situated around the ground.
