Your seat location has been allocated by our Member and Supporter Services team in line with government guidelines. The location of your seat is visible on your eTicket. This cannot be changed and you must only sit in your allocated seat.

If you have reserved a ticket but do not plan to attend, please inform us so this can be made available to another Surrey Member.

If you bought a ticket for this fixture before 28th June 2021, it is no longer valid and you will receive a refund. This is because the fixture was originally sold to 100% capacity but has now been reduced to 25%, due to government Covid restrictions.


You must wear a face mask at all times other than when sat in your allocated seat, eating or drinking. Hand sanitiser will be available around the ground. Please maintain a safe distance from fellow spectators and staff at all times.

You should not attend The Kia Oval if you have any Covid 19 symptoms or your most recent test was positive. We kindly ask that all attendees read our Code of Conduct here before attending.

Scorecards are available from the Micky Stewart Members’ Pavilion reception. These are free of charge.

Water fountains are available around the ground or, alternatively, staff at any bar will be able to give you tap water for free.


The Kia High Catch is the interval entertainment at The Kia Oval. Five tennis balls will be fired off the top floor of the JM Finn Stand and the participant, down on the outfield, will win a prize for every catch they make!

Please see below for a map of the ground.


As we are constantly striving to improve our standards, facilities and attitudes accordingly, we have launched a non-visible disability wristband. This optional wristband will enable fans with a non-visible disability to easily identify themselves to Club staff on match-day, should they need any assistance, without having to give an explanation or the nature of their disability. Staff can then support the individual in the appropriate way.

If you require a wristband, please collect it from Theresa Peters in the Pavilion Reception upon arrival or email and one will be posted to you.

Fans attending with accessible needs can view our access guide here.
