Leicestershire Foxes are running a special offer to allow families to enjoy the Royal London 50-Over One Day Cup during the summer holidays.
Under 16s are able to come to watch all of the group games at Grace Road for FREE (when accompanied by an adult) while adult tickets cost just £10 in advance.
Our first match against Surrey is a Community Day sponsored by the Meesha Group and it will be packed full of fun for all of the family.
The Red Monkey Play area will be in place throughout the afternoon and there will be inflatables and face painting as well as lots of food and drink options around the ground, including a barbecue.
We will also have the Royal London 50-Over One Day trophy here throughout the afternoon so fans can have their photographs taken with the cup during the day.
Leicestershire and Rutland Cricket Chief Executive Wasim Khan MBE said: “We held an Open Day to launch the start of the season and are now hosting our Community Day to celebrate the start of the Royal London 50-Over One Day Cup campaign. We want to show the whole community what we have to offer, and have decided to reduce prices for the tournament to make cricket affordable for families over the summer holidays.
“The ICC World Cup was a fantastic global event and 50-over cricket again captured the imagination during the series between England and New Zealand last month. As well as what promises to be an entertaining game of cricket between two exciting sides, there will be lots going on around the ground. We are expecting a big crowd against Surrey, so please make sure you book your tickets in advance.”
