With the four early season LV= Insurance County Championship fixtures at Lord's all falling before the 17th May Government deadline for sports venues to open their doors and welcome fans back into grounds, the first opportunity Middlesex supporters will have to watch the side in live action this summer will be at the Kia Oval, in the eagerly anticipated four-day London derby clash against rivals Surrey - being played between Thursday 20th and Sunday 23rd May 2021.
Naturally, Surrey County Cricket Club are giving priority access to their members ahead of offering any tickets to non Surrey members, however from 6th April, subject to tickets being available after Surrey's members have applied for their allocation, Middlesex supporters can then purchase tickets at the Oval.
In line with Government guidelines, the Oval will be operating at a reduced in capacity for the match, with social distancing measures in place, separating groups by two seats and with seating only available on alternate rows, so tickets will inevitably be in huge demand.
Whilst there are no guarantees at this stage that tickets will be available to non Surrey members, we wanted to give our members and fans as much notice as possible to mark the 6th April in your diaries, to give them the opportunity to buy tickets should they become available!
Surrey have produced a downloadable guide to attending fixtures at the Kia Oval, which they advise is read in advance of purchasing tickets and also prior to attending. This can be found HERE.
