Surrey County Cricket Club is delighted to announce plans to welcome fans back to The Kia Oval, in line with government guidelines, for fixtures after 17th May.
Rory Burns’ side will host local rivals Middlesex in an eagerly anticipated LV= County Championship London Derby from Thursday 20th – Sunday 23rd May, followed by Gloucestershire a week later from Thursday 27th – Sunday 30th May.
As always, Members of Surrey County Cricket Club with County Championship matches included in their Membership will have priority access to these fixtures. This is all Members bar those who have joined in the ‘T20’ category.
With a limited capacity and strong interest anticipated, Members are asked to secure their tickets free of charge via our eTicketing site from 9am on Friday 19th March until midnight on 5th April.
Members can select which fixture and day that they would like to attend and the block within the ground that they would like to sit. Tickets will then be automatically allocated within that block.
During this initial window, tickets will only be available to Members. Members will not be able to use their annual guest passes during this period, but will be able to do so when non-Members can secure tickets from 6th April.
Subject to availability, non-members will be able to secure tickets from Tuesday 6th April at 9am. Please note that we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate Members moving seats to sit with non-Members at a later date. Members can still secure a £0 ticket after 5th April, but this is the date on which the Members’ priority window will end.
There are a limited number of tickets per day as the ground will operate at a reduced capacity, in line with government guidelines. Members can secure up to six tickets in one booking, and social distancing measures will be in place, separating groups by two seats and with seating only available on alternate rows.
Food and drink outlets will be available around the ground in the concourse areas and the new stand. When visiting facilities within indoor concourse areas, please be advised that you will be required to wear a mask. Please note that all food and drink outlets are now cashless.
The Micky Stewart Members’ Pavilion and Bedser Stand will not be available to sit in for these fixtures, as these areas will still be in use by the players.
All tickets will be sent digitally via email, but Members can request to collect a printed copy of their tickets on the match-day if they do not have a smart phone. To request this, please email our Member and Supporter Services Team on email@example.com once you have secured your tickets.

The government roadmap outlines that The Kia Oval can welcome full crowds from 21st June, and the normal process for Members attending fixtures will resume from that date, starting with the Club’s Vitality Blast fixture against Essex.
The ticket allocation process for Surrey County Cricket Club’s three T20 fixtures prior to 21st June will be outlined shortly. Members with T20 fixtures included in their Membership should be assured that they will also get priority access to these matches.
Members can visit The Kia Oval prior to 17th May by purchasing a lunch on the Corinthian Roof Terrace on Monday 12th or Tuesday 13th April. Full details can be found here.
If you have any queries relating to attending these matches, or your 2021 Membership, please contact our Member and Supporter Services Team on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0203 946 0100.
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.
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?
The initial priority window from 19th March to 5th April is Members only, to ensure that Surrey County Cricket Club Members have priority to attend these fixtures. Should there be tickets available after 5th April, then non-Members will be able to purchase tickets and Members will continue to be able to secure £0 value tickets if they have LV County Championship matches included in their Membership. Members can secure a £0 value guest ticket from 6th April, but will need to present a guest voucher from their 2021 Membership Pack alongside this ticket on the match-day.
What time will gates be open?
Gates will open at 9.30am, 90 minutes prior to the start of play.
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. Alternate rows will be used, and there will be a minimum of two seats between bookings. No aisle seats will be available. You will be allocated a seat in line with the government guidelines. Your seat location will be clear on your eTicket.
Can I attend all days of a fixture?

How many tickets are available?
There are a limited number of tickets available on each day of the fixture and so will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Do I need to bring my own PPE?
Yes. If you would like to wear gloves and a mask at The Kia Oval, then please bring your own PPE to the ground. Hand sanitiser will be available around the ground.
Please note that some catering facilities are in enclosed areas and therefore you will require a face covering or mask to access these, in line with government guidelines
Will food and drink be available at the ground?
A number of catering facilities will be open at The Kia Oval serving refreshments. A small selection of hot food and snacks will be available from these bars.
Will toilet facilities be open?
