Tickets remain available for the game. By booking in advance you can save £5 on the match day prices – CLICK HERE to order online 24 hours a day. Print@Home tickets are available up until 5pm on evening match days – really useful when it comes to beating the match day queues!

The ticket office and shop will open at 9am for match day sales at the Abington Avenue end. This is also the location for match day ticket collections


Car parking is available in Abington Park for free from 4pm; this car park closes one hour after the end of play, and no cars can be left in it overnight due to new stipulations from Northampton Borough Council.

There is no public car parking on site at the County Ground


The first ball will be bowled at 6:30pm, with play continuing until approximately 9:30/9:45pm. Each team will have up to 20 overs to score as many runs as they can, unless they lost 10 wickets!


There are a number of food options at the County Ground, including Mem Saab’s curry stand, Franks burgers, hot dogs and chicken, crepes, and other light refreshments.

For the first time drinks tokens will be available to buy when you enter the ground, saving you money at the bar!

5 x beer tokens – £20 (saving £2.50 compared to over-the-bar prices)

5 x non-alcoholic tokens – £10 (saving £2.50 compared to over-the-bar prices)

These tokens can be exchanged at designated bars throughout the Vitality Blast campaign, so if you don’t use them on Wednesday you can save them for a later date!


There will be loads of fun and games in Steeler’s Kids Zone for all the family, from garden games through to face painting, a bouncy castle and meeting the cheerleaders!

Steeler’s Kids Zone opens at 4:30pm


This year’s brand new Vitality Blast replica kit from Canterbury will be available in the shop, along with a wide range of cricket merchandise and memorabilia


This year we have a special match programme full of interactive features that link through to the official Northamptonshire app! The programme will be available for £5 at various points around the County Ground, while the app itself is free onto iOS and Android phones and tablets.
