In light of today’s announcement by the Prime Minister on the cancellation of the spectator pilot programme for live sport, Warwickshire County Cricket Club can confirm that unfortunately Club Members and supporters will no longer be able to attend play in the opening Bob Willis Trophy match versus Northamptonshire at Edgbaston on Saturday or Sunday.
Stuart Cain, Chief Executive of Warwickshire CCC, said: “We’re naturally disappointed by today’s announcement given the steps that we have taken to create the safest possible environment at an elite sporting event. However, we fully understand and respect the Government’s decision.
“We remain committed to working with the Government and the ECB to play a further part in this pilot programme and building on our first successful hosting of a live crowd on Tuesday.
“Whilst we understand the disappointment from our Members and supporters, we have invested in an enhanced live stream for our matches in the 2020 season, and this can be accessed completely free from tomorrow morning at edgbaston.com.”
Warwickshire Members were able to claim complimentary tickets for both days of the spectator pilot programme. Supporters who purchased tickets will receive an automatic refund in the coming days.
