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).

Pass outs

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.
