We have created this page to ensure our members and supporters are kept right up to date with the very latest Covid-19 news that has an impact on the 2021 season.
Due to ongoing Government Covid-19 restrictions, the 2021 season will disappointingly start behind closed doors, however as the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown plan progresses, we are absolutely thrilled that we will be able to welcome crowds back into our grounds this season - which at this stage is proposed to be in step three of the plan, at the earliest after 17th May 2021.
Whilst crowds will be returning, inevitably ground capacities at all venues will be reduced over the coming season, to ensure the safety of all in attendance. The health and safety of everyone remains our primary concern, and as such all our policy decisions around spectators attending matches in 2021 are guided by this and Government guidance.
Reduced capacities, and the need for venues to be aware of spectator numbers in advance of matches, have led to us implementing new processes this year, and we would like to thank all members and supporters for their ongoing understanding of this and greatly appreciate your continued support through these ongoing challenging times.
Due to the ever-changing regulations that we are operating under, we will be updating this page with the very latest information that is important to our members and supporters, so please keep referring to it for the latest updates as and when they happen.
Out-ground matches in 2021:
Middlesex members will be given priority access to all Middlesex matches, having the opportunity to secure seats ahead of the general public at all times. Production of your valid 2021 membership card will not guarantee automatic entry to Middlesex home matches this year, however members will not need to purchase a ticket themselves. Instead, in 2021, Middlesex members MUST register to attend all out-ground matches, as no admittance will be granted to non-registered members.
To register your seat at any of the above out-ground matches, please log into the members' portal HERE then click the OUTGROUND TICKETS tab, where you will find further information and be able to reserve your seat at our out-ground matches in 2021.
Please note: Members have the opportunity to reserve their seats at all out-ground matches in a first priority window, open now. Any remaining tickets will be available to members' guests in a second priority window, with any remaining tickets going on sale to the general public in a third window to non-members who have registered for priority access to any general admission tickets.
Priority window dates:
Once the priority window closes, we will assess the number of applications and the restrictions if any, on number of spectators, and If we are oversubscribed with members’ requests for any of the out-ground fixtures, a ballot will take place and wherever possible, tickets will be shared equally to members who have applied.
Re-new as a member in 2021:
With crowds returning to cricket grounds in 2021 and members' receiving first priority to attend all available matches in 2021, now is a great time to renew. if you're a 2019 or 2020 member who hasn't yet renewed for 2021, you can do so now by clicking HERE and you can start to look forward to returning to watch Middlesex in action in 2021.
If any capacity remains after members have reserved their seats and have had the chance to buy guest tickets, any remaining tickets will be made available on general sale.
The best way to obtain priority access to matches in 2021 is clearly to become a member, however non-members can register for priority access to any public sale tickets now, to ensure they receive the first opportunity to purchase general public sale tickets.
Registration for this priority window opens on 01 March 2021 and will remain open until 2nd May 2021.
From 03 May 2021 at 10am, those registered on the priority list will be contacted with an opportunity to secure any public sale tickets available.

At this stage, Middlesex are currently waiting for clarification from MCC on the exact process members will need to follow themselves to attend Lord's matches.
We have been informed that Middlesex members will receive equal admission priority to MCC members to all Middlesex home matches in 2021, and that all members’ ticket requests will receive priority ahead of general public admission tickets.
Middlesex members will not need to purchase a ticket to attend Lord’s matches in the 2021 season, however we have been advised that all Middlesex members at this stage should create an account on the lords.org website and then send us their Lord's Client Reference number to verify their Middlesex membership, as we are advised that it is highly likely that all members will need to do this to attend matches at Lord's this year.
We therefore recommend all members to complete this two-stage process now. Detailed instructions on how to do this shown HERE.
Any members who require assistance in this process should call the Middlesex office on 0207 289 1300 (option one) between 9am and 5pm Monday to Thursday and 9am to 4pm on Friday.
Once members have completed this two-step process, you will be eligible to purchase Rover Tickets for your guests to attend Middlesex’s Vitality Blast matches and will have done all that is required of you at this stage to attend to watch Middlesex games at Lord’s in 2021 in person. As soon as we receive any further information from MCC as to any other processes Middlesex members need to complete to attend Lord’s matches in 2021, we will update this page with the latest information.
Non-member supporters of Middlesex need to create an account on the lords.org website and will then be eligible to purchase general ground admission tickets to all available Middlesex home matches at Lord’s.
Unfortunately due to Government restrictions ALL Second Eleven matches will be played under stage three Covid-19 guidelines in 2021, meaning that there will be no admission to spectators and all matches must be played behind closed doors until all Government restrictions are lifted surrounding public events.

In these times of great uncertainty, Middlesex Cricket is making a firm commitment in 2021 to any supporters purchasing out-ground tickets, that should any match be significantly affected by the ongoing pandemic, to the extent that the match needs to be played behind closed doors or capacities be reduced for social distancing, leading to us not being able to fulfil the seat for any tickets purchased, then a full refund will automatically be issued.
We want all our spectators to have absolute peace of mind when purchasing tickets, knowing that their safety is our priority at all times, and our ticket refund promise gives this assurance.

With so much uncertainty existing currently as to exactly what impact the ongoing pandemic will have on the 2021 season, Middlesex's Chief Executive Richard Goatley issued a statement confirming the following points to offer assurances to the club's members:
