The Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s long-standing relationship with West Yorkshire Police will continue in 2024, with both organisations working together to enhance supporter safety and experience at Headingley’s 2024 major matches.

Having won a Business of Cricket Award for the ‘Best Spectator Experience’ for Headingley’s 2023 Ashes Test Match, the Club are striving to further enhance the offering for every visitor to the ground. A partnership approach, working with organisations like West Yorkshire Police, has always been key to the success of major matches in Yorkshire and will once again be a feature when Pakistan’s Women’s and Men’s teams are the visitors later this month.

Yorkshire CCC’s Stadium Safety Officer Sandra Clark said: “It is always fantastic to work with a range of partners to ensure we are offering a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone that visits us here at Headingley.

“Our long-standing relationship with West Yorkshire Police has always played a huge part in this, and they can be very proud of their part in our award-winning experience in 2023. We have been working with them throughout the winter period to plan for our major matches and are now in a great position to activate our plans.

“We are very excited to be welcoming a large volume of supporters, both returning and new, through our gates later this month and are confident we will give them a memorable and enjoyable experience.”

Chief Inspector Mark Gamlyn of West Yorkshire Police, who was present at the 2023 Ashes, said: “It’s always great to work with Yorkshire County Cricket Club and play our part in making major matches at Headingley such special occasions for the many thousands of attendees.

“We’ve developed a great relationship with the Club over the years and are delighted to continue to support at major matches again this summer, starting with the T20 internationals later this month.

“Headingley is a unique place and has been host to some great cricketing moments, and all of our team at West Yorkshire Police look forward to playing our part in ensuring all supporters have a safe and enjoyable time whilst at the ground.”

Tickets are still available for the Women’s IT20 on Sunday 19 May, starting from just £15 for adults and £5 for juniors.


General admission tickets are sold out for the Men’s IT20 on Wednesday 22 May, but a limited amount of premium seating and hospitality is available still via the below link.
