Surrey have sold out their international fixtures for 2021 in record time.
The first four days of the Test match between England and India at The Kia Oval between the 2nd – 6th September have reached capacity as has England’s ODI with Sri Lanka on Thursday 1st July.
Only tickets for Day 5 of the Test match and some hospitality remain available.
Over 10,000 Surrey Members enjoyed priority access to tickets last month, while ticket purchasers for the cancelled 2020 internationals had the option to roll their seat over to the equivalent in 2021.
2021 will see the opening of a magnificent new three tier stand at The Kia Oval – boosting capacity of the world-famous ground to 27,500.
Exceptional demand saw Days 2 and 3 sold out within an hour of going on sale to ballot winners – with the Royal London One-Day International and Days 1 & 4 of the Test match following shortly afterwards.
Surrey Chairman Richard Thompson said: “It’s incredible to see the demand for 2021 international tickets at The Kia Oval.
“After a difficult year for everyone in 2020, and curtailed 175th anniversary celebrations for the Club, this goes to show just how important cricket is to the British public. We’ll be sure to make 2021 a celebration of everything that’s great about cricket, summer & The Kia Oval.
“Our world class new development means we have sold more tickets than we ever have before in record time.
“Surrey have always had a history of breaking records and we are delighted even in these circumstances that record continues.”
2021 domestic fixtures will be announced in the new year with further capacity crowds expected at all Vitality Blast and The Hundred matches.
India will play a Test match at The Kia Oval for the first time since the historic 2018 match that saw Sir Alistair Cook bring the curtain down on his England career with a century – and ended with Surrey’s own Sam Curran named Man of the Series.
A capacity crowd will witness Sri Lanka’s first ODI with England at The Kia Oval since Jason Roy’s heroics in 2016. The game will be England’s first One Day International at The Kia Oval since lifting the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
