Warwickshire First Team Coach Mark Robinson says the meticulous planning for 2024 starts now as he reflects on the newly-released fixture schedule for next season.

Robinson described Fixtures Day as one of the most exciting in the cricket calendar as Bears fans begin the countdown to 2024 and start planning their sporting diaries.

The anticipation has been heightened with news that Warwickshire open their LV= Insurance County Championship campaign at home to local rivals Worcestershire on 5 April.

There’s more weekend action to look forward to; a red ball return to Edgbaston in August; a series of Friday Night Lights games in the Vitality Blast; and the prospect of the Bears playing at regional out-grounds for the first time in 10 years.
