Surrey stream seven years of cricket in 2020 - Kia Oval Skip to main content

Surrey Members and supporters watched more than seven years of cricket at The Kia Oval via the Club’s live stream during the shortened 2020 season.

A total of 67,338 hours from 18 days of domestic cricket at The Kia Oval in August & September were watched by fans all over the world, despite COVID-19 restricting what is usually a six-month campaign to just two months.

These figures do not include viewers of our two televised home Vitality Blast fixtures against Middlesex & Kent or of any of the Surrey men’s 15 away matchdays this summer.

Available completely free on Facebook Watch, YouTube &, the stream complete with a multi-camera ball tracking set up, live replays and in-play commentary from the BBC’s Mark Church brought Surrey home matches to more than 2.1 million people.

Vitality Blast matches were presented by Sky Sports’ David Garrido and a range of guests including Morne Morkel, Ollie Pope, Liam Plunkett and journalists Lawrence Booth & Will Macpherson.

Surrey & long term streaming partners My Action Replay are already working on potential improvements ahead of the 2021 season.
