CAVE Sensory Room
A free Controlled Audio Visual Environment (CAVE) will be available at the ground, with a variety of popular pieces of sensory equipment to encourage different kinds of user interaction.
In Britain 22% of people are living with a disability. We want to provide a safe haven for our supporters and reduce social isolation for individuals and families.
Users will need to book the space in advance.
The CAVE will be located behind the Trueman Enclosure and supporters who book the facility will have sole use of it during their timeslot.
Buggies will be in operation for people with disabilities from Car Park F to the gates. Please note the buggies won’t operate after the game until St Michael’s Lane has re-opened following a road closure allowing for the safe egress of all spectators. When the road opens, they can be found outside the Ticket Office on St Michael’s Lane.
The Club has launched its Respect campaign for those attending any Yorkshire and England matches at Headingley, Scarborough and York. If you have suffered or witness any anti-social behaviour at the match, please text the word Respect to 60650. Spectators are able to report this anonymously to a member of the team here at Headingley in person via your nearest steward, or via our Customer Voice webform.
The Club operates a zero tolerance policy toward anti-social behaviour.
There is no place for anti-social behaviour in cricket or wider society. We hope that you enjoy the game!

In the event of inclement weather
Spectators are urged to consider the weather forecast before making their journey to Headingley. As Headingley is an open air stadium, consideration must be given to sheltering from the rain or extreme heat.
Umbrellas are permitted (no larger than a golf umbrella) and providing they are deemed safe by the safety and security team upon ingress. Umbrellas with a pointed metal tip are not permitted.
We encourage spectators to consider all weather conditions by bringing an umbrella, sun cream and their own bottled water (sealed bottles only will be permitted into the venue).
Follow the link below for the most up-to-date weather information in Headingley.
Please also see the raincheck policy and find the ODI refund policy.
Pass outs for the ODI will be available 30 minutes after the start of play until 30 minutes after the interval. Once a pass out has been taken, please expect to re-join a queue upon re-entry and experience the same searching procedures and ticket checks as upon your first arrival. You will need both the pass out and your match ticket to re-enter.
What’s the minimum age for a fan attending a game alone?
YCCC recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children visiting Headingley for these games and has a commitment to practice which protects them. As part of this commitment we have reviewed the minimum age of which a child can attend a game without being accompanied by another individual. This review has involved consultation with other first class counties, Leeds City Council and stakeholders across YCCC.
Our recommendation is that any child under the age of 14 should be accompanied by a responsible adult (defined in law as aged 18 or over) and decisions on entry to the stadium will be based on that age threshold.
