The Yorkshire County Cricket Club have sold out of general admission tickets for the Vikings’ NatWest T20 Blast fixture against Lancashire Lightning on Friday 11th August at Headingley.
This is the fifth year in a row that the #GameOfRoses has reached capacity, with 2017’s tickets selling out one month prior to the fixture.
The Club have also seen a 31% increase in T20 Season Tickets and saw a record attendance at Headingley outside of a Lancashire Lightning game of 10,137 for last week’s NatWest T20 Blast victory over Notts Outlaws.
Andy Dawson, Yorkshire County Cricket Club Commercial Director said: “We are delighted to announce that next month’s NatWest T20 Blast fixture against Lancashire Lightning is now sold out.
“The response to tickets since the Club went on general sale in March has been phenomenal and we forecast further growth in T20 ticket sales this season.
“For the first time, Yorkshire have comfortably surpassed 1,000 T20 Season Tickets and our junior membership is also showing significant growth.
“Friday nights at Headingley have proved extremely popular over the past couple of seasons and we anticipate another bumper crowd for next Friday’s home fixture against Birmingham Bears.”
