Surrey now know we will begin this year’s Vitality Blast with a London Derby at Lord’s after the ECB confirmed all fixtures for this year’s competition on Friday.
Runners up in 2020, Surrey will be hoping to go one better in this year’s competition. They face a 14-match South Group, playing six sides home and away with just a home fixture against Essex Eagles and an away trip to Gloucestershire to complete the group stage.
After two away matches to start the campaign, Surrey play six consecutive matches at The Kia Oval including tussles with rivals such as Sussex Sharks & Middlesex. Four back-to-back away games follow that before Kent are the final visitors to South London in the latest Oldest Rivalry battle.
From 9am today, Surrey Members can buy additional guest tickets in a priority window until midnight at the end of Sunday 7th February. All general admission areas are available in this purchasing window, including sections of the new stand at the Pavilion End of the ground where a wall of support from Surrey’s biggest fans will create an atmosphere to spur the team on.
After that window, previous purchasers will have the opportunity to secure their tickets before remaining seats go on general sale.
The top four from the South Group will progress to the quarter-finals, where they will face counterparts from the North Group between August 24-27. Each of the winners in those matches will head to Finals Day, this year scheduled for Saturday 18th September.
The ECB also confirmed 2021 Royal London Cup fixtures on Friday. Women’s regional fixtures will follow next week.
