Surrey County Cricket Club are excited to welcoming Indian captain Virat Kohli for the month of June – a period during which the club will host the 80th Guildford Festival.
Due to the expected popularity of this fixture – and the very limited size of the Woodbridge Road ground – the Club are bringing in a number of special measures to ensure all Members are able to enjoy the game.
The main change is the necessity to limit the number of guest tickets available each day to 500. The game will also be ticketed per day, rather than in the normal way whereby a ticket for the game can be used on any one of the four days.
This decision has been made to ensure that all Members who want to watch the match are able to do so. These tickets are available on a first come, first served basis. To claim your ticket, please do either of the below:
- Exchange a guest voucher (s) for a ticket for a specific day (s) in person at the Kia Oval ticket office
- Send a guest voucher (s) alongside your membership number to: Surrey CCC Ticket Office, Kia Oval, Kennington, London, SE11 5SS in advance, with a note stating which day (s) they are to be exchanged for. Tickets will be sent by return mail.
Please note that Members’ Guest Vouchers will not be able to be used in person at Guildford CC on the days of the game.
Surrey CCC Chief Executive, Richard Gould, said: “Everyone at Surrey is very excited to be welcoming a player of the quality and stature of Virat Kohli to the club – but we’re also very conscious of the impact that his immense personal popularity could have on the club, particularly at small venues such as Guildford Cricket Club.
“To this end, we have decided to implement this system for the use of Members’ guests at this one fixture. It is hoped that it will enable all Members – as well as their guests – to enjoy what is surely going to be a very memorable occasion in comfort and safety.
“Kohli is also due to play a home match against Glamorgan in the Royal London One Day Cup at the Kia Oval on Wednesday June 6th, as well as a number of relatively local away games at Beckenham and Lord’s, so hopefully all cricket fans will be able to get down and watch him play.”
