Kent Cricket and Stagecoach are offering customers a unique incentive to leave the car at home – a 20% discount on adult ticket prices at the Kent Spitfires v Hampshire Royal London One-Day Cup match!

Designed to encourage supporters to use the extensive network of Stagecoach services, many stopping outside the main entrance to The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence in Canterbury.

You can pre-buy tickets at and apply the promotional code, Stagecoach, to the Thursday 30 July fixture.

Pre-buy prices will automatically reduce by 20%. On the day, you just need to supply evidence of having taken the bus to the fixture and will be allowed into the ground, with the discount ticket.

Speaking about the promotion, Kent Cricket CEO Jamie Clifford said: “We are enjoying working closely with Stagecoach and are already partners in an extended Park and Ride service at many of our fixtures.

“Expanding this to include a discount for their customers at one of the matches seems a logical progression."

With regular services from all over East Kent, direct from Shepway and Dover to the ground and from Thanet and Ashford via Canterbury Bus Station.
There are frequent buses direct to Canterbury City Centre from the bus stop on New Dover Road adjacent St. Lawrence Road including the luxury Stagecoach Gold 16 bus with leather seats, extra legroom and free WiFi.

Philip Norwell, Managing Director of Stagecoach in East Kent said: “The partnership has been very positive as we continue to look at ways to encourage people to use public transport.

“The costs of running vehicles, challenges in finding parking and convenience of not having to worry about who is driving makes our buses very viable options. We are pleased to be able to pass on the ticket discount to our customers.”

The Hampshire fixture starts at 2pm on Thursday 30 July with the expected end 9.45pm. Tickets are usually £15 but with the Stagecoach promotion the price is reduced to £12. In addition this fixture doubles as Royal London’s Kids go Free promotion, an ideal family outing at the start of the holidays.
