Raincheck policy


Seating for this fixture is allocated. Please only sit in the seat allocated to you on your ticket.

If you happen to have an issue with your seat, please do not hesitate to contact the nearest steward and we will do our best to accommodate you.


Supporters may be searched before they are allowed access to the venue. If you or your bag aren’t searched that doesn’t mean the stewards are not doing their job – searchers are just one component of the security measures in place.

Please keep the number of personal belongings you bring to an absolute minimum – any items you bring will slow your entry & may also prevent your entry to the venue.


Pass outs will be available 30 minutes before the interval until 30 minutes after the start of the second innings of the Vitality Blast game. Once a pass out has been taken, please expect to join a queue upon re-entry. You will need your match ticket and the pass out in order to gain entry back into the ground.

Pitch Access

Entry onto the pitch or into any restricted areas by individuals or groups is not allowed. Anyone entering the pitch will be ejected from the game and banned from future events at the stadium. Where tickets have been bought in a group, the person buying the tickets will be subject to the same banning order as the person on the pitch. When there is a Police-presence at the game, anyone going onto to the pitch will be handed over to officers and may face further criminal charges.

Free WiFi

You can access free WiFi from your seat at Emerald Headingley Cricket Ground, meaning you can keep up to date with all the latest scores and even watch wickets back on Yorkshire’s new ‘Match Centre’.
