Yorkshire Cricket Policy on Kirpans

Yorkshire Cricket firmly believes that people should have the right to demonstrate their religious beliefs and that the Club’s role in the community should be used positively to encourage social inclusion whenever it is safe and practical to allow this to happen.

As such individuals who are members of the Sikh faith and who have demonstrated their commitment to the faith by going through the Amrit process will be welcomed at Headingley Cricket Ground and will be permitted access carrying the symbols of their faith including the Kirpan.

However, the Club also has a duty of care to everyone who comes to Headingley. It has established a policy which respects the rights of Sikhs but also respects the rights of others and the Club’s regulatory obligations.

Spectators who may wish to wear a kirpan at either of these games will need to become familiar with the requirements needed to be met in order to do so. Please note the information in the below link is under ‘Other Considerations’.

Kirpans

What is the minimum age for a fan to attend a game alone?

The minimum age for a child (anyone under the age of 18) to attend an event unaccompanied is 14 years old. Children under 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult*. It is the responsibility of the ticket purchaser to check before buying tickets that they comply with these age restrictions. Whilst there is a minimum age restriction in place, parents/carers are responsible for deciding whether their child (aged 14-17) needs to be accompanied by a responsible adult based on their general developmental maturity and their awareness of potential risks.

*A responsible adult is aged 18 or older, with the capacity to make decisions that are in the best interests of a child and actively supervises them.
