T20 Blast local derbies handed prime dates
Local T20 Blast derbies against Yorkshire Vikings and Notts Outlaws have once again been handed prime dates, as the Club looks to secure sell-out crowds for both in 2018.
Last year, the clash versus Yorkshire at Queen’s Park sold out five days in advance, with demand at an all-time high, and the sides will go head-to-head again at Chesterfield on Saturday 28 July.
The East Midlands derby against Notts Outlaws, meanwhile, has been given a prime Friday night slot at the height of summer, taking place on Friday 13 July.
Derbyshire begin their home T20 Blast campaign versus Lancashire Lightning on Friday 6 July and face Leicestershire Foxes in the final home group stage fixture on Saturday 11 August.
T20 Blast tickets for all home games go on general sale in March 2018, while all home regular season games are included in Club Membership.
Chief Executive, Simon Storey said: “We received terrific support in 2017, with more people than ever watching T20 Blast cricket in Derbyshire.
“The local derby versus Yorkshire at Chesterfield is always a special occasion and we had unprecedented demand last summer with the fixture selling out well in advance.
“Both local derbies have once again been given great dates in 2018 and we’re hoping local people will once again get behind the Falcons and we can secure a double sell-out.”
