‘Kids Go Free’ for Sussex’s Royal London One-Day Cup group matches at Hove
Thursday 20th April 2017
Sussex have announced that all three of their home Royal London One-Day Cup group matches taking place at The 1st Central County Ground will be FREE entry for Under-18’s.
The Sharks begin their home group campaign on Sunday 30th April when Somerset are the visitors to Hove, and for the following matches against Glamorgan on Tuesday 2nd May, and the clash with rivals Surrey on Sunday 7th May, all those aged 18 and under will not pay a penny to watch the action.
Sussex revealed their new pink Royal London One-Day Cup shirt for 2017 at the pre-season media day, sponsored by Parafix Tapes & Conversions Ltd, as the Sharks begin their quest for a Lord’s final. They will actually begin their 2017 campaign at the Home of Cricket on Thursday 27th April, when Sussex travel to face Middlesex, the first of four away South Group games.
Sussex’s Commercial Manager Mark Judges said, “The Sussex Summer of Cricket is an action-packed one and we’re looking to encourage as many families to join us at The 1st Central County Ground this season for all formats of the game. That’s why we’ve decided to make it completely free for youngsters to attend our Royal London One-Day Cup matches at Hove and we can’t wait for the 50-over action to begin.”
Youngsters can gain free entry by obtaining a ‘Kids Go Free’ leaflet on arrival, which will be available at both the Eaton Road and Palmeira Avenue entrances. The offer is only available to those aged 18 and under, and under 14’s must be accompanied by an adult.
Tickets are also available in advance online HERE or from the Club Shop in person.
I would also like to let you know about “Sharkz Travel” ( http://www.sussexcricket.co.uk/news-1/travel-sussex-announce-new-partnership-with-sharks-travel ) which is a new partnership for 2017 and offers clubs the opportunity of organising easy travel arrangements for their members to and from games without the worry of parking etc.,
The 2 initiatives make it easier than ever to have a social event for your members whilst watching a competitive one day game so I hope to see you and your club members here at the ground in 2017.
