The new Family Zone at the Kia Oval has sold out for Surrey’s opening home fixture of the Vitality Blast competition, against Kent.
With an ever increasing number of families enjoying T20 cricket at the Kia Oval, and a growing Pride of Lions Membership that caters specifically for Surrey fans under the age of 16, the new Family Zone gives families a safe, engaging and fun environment to enjoy the Vitality Blast.
Surrey’s opening home fixture of this summer’s T20 competition, against local rivals Kent, is the first to see the new Family Zone sell out with demand high across all remaining fixtures.
The new area offers fans the very best view of the action, with seats located on the second floor balcony of the OCS Stand, directly behind the bowler’s arm. Games, cricket coaching, competitions, giveaways and player autograph signings will take place in the England Suite of the OCS Stand, which is directly linked to the seats and will provide more space than in previous years – and an indoor environment for fans to enjoy on a match-day. Food and drink will also be available in the India Suite, situated next door to the England Suite.
There will also be an exclusive parent’s bar – making it easy for parents to enjoy a drink whilst looking after their children.
Steve Kitcher, Head of Public Sales at Surrey County Cricket Club and the Kia Oval, said: “It’s incredibly important to us that our young fans have the time of their lives when watching Surrey at the Kia Oval.”
“The addition of a specific private suite behind the seats will enable families to easily access all the fun activities we’ve got planned and have a specific part of the ground that’s devoted entirely to their needs and stewarded appropriately.”
Families who would like to attend Surrey v Kent are still able to purchase tickets in general admission areas of the Kia Oval, or tickets are still available in the new Family Zone for Surrey’s other T20 fixtures this summer.
HOW TO GET TICKETS IN THE FAMILY ZONE
To purchase tickets for Surrey’s within the Family Zone, visit the Kia Oval ticketing page, choose the game you would like to purchase and select any seats within Blocks B-F of the OCS Stand. Fans are only able to purchase tickets within their area if they have at least one U16 ticket in their basket at the time of purchase. This is to ensure that the Family Zone seating is exclusive to family parties.

If Members would like to bring a guest into this area, they must purchase a ticket for their guests. Members can purchase up to two guest tickets for every game.
