Frequently Asked Questions
How many tickets can I secure?
Members are able to secure tickets for up to six Members. Your fellow Members must be part of your ‘Network’ on your eTicketing account. To do this, log-in to your online eTicketing account, select ‘My Account’ in the top right and click ‘My Network’.
Please note that if you secure six tickets, these will be allocated in seats next to each other. If you are not part of the same household, or social bubble, then you will be required to secure tickets separately and sit apart in line with government guidelines.
Will tickets be available on the gate?
No. We expect demand to be high for the fixture and advise that any Member wishing to attend secures their tickets in advance online. All Members must have a ticket to attend the fixture, and cannot attend with their Membership Card alone.
Can I bring a guest?
No. At the moment access to fixtures at The Kia Oval is for Members only, and each attendee must have a valid ticket.
What time will gates be open?
Gates will open at 9.30am, 90 minutes prior to the start of play. Please note that the Hobbs and Edrich’s Gates at the Pavilion End of the ground will not be open for Members’ access. Please use the Alec Stewart Gate at the Vauxhall End to enter the ground.
How much are tickets?
Tickets are free of charge for Members.
How will seats be allocated?
There are strict guidelines as to how seats can be allocated to ensure social distancing measures are maintained.

Can I attend both the Saturday and Sunday?
