Kent County Cricket Club’s fixture schedule has been released, and 2014 promises to be a watershed year for county cricket. With significant changes to the playing programme, there will be greater opportunities for more people to enjoy watching Kent more often.

Next year’s fixtures will be the first to be played under a new ECB schedule which will run until 2017 and has been introduced based on the recommendations of the Morgan Review into the domestic game and extensive customer feedback from more than 25,000 county cricket fans.

During 2014, five of Kent’s LV= County Championship matches will start on a Sunday, as well as two Saturdays (either day one or two), offering a wonderful opportunity to enjoy weekend cricket with the family.

The Royal London One-Day Cup replaces the Yorkshire Bank 40, and will be played during the school summer holidays, with four home day/night matches in the 50 over format.

The schedule also includes the NatWest T20 Blast, which includes five floodlit, Friday night home fixtures, spread throughout the season. A sixth floodlit match, against rivals Essex will take place on a Wednesday night, 11th June.

Kent’s action packed 2014 schedule includes an additional 19 days of weekend and evening cricket throughout the season, with many of these on Friday nights under floodlights.

Kent Cricket CEO, Jamie Clifford commented on the announcement; “The 2014 schedule offers more opportunities to enjoy watching Kent Cricket more often.

“I hope as many in the county as possible will take the opportunity – with increased evening and weekend cricket – to support Kent in 2014.”

Kent Cricket supporters can also look forward to three bank holidays of cricket during 2014, cricket in Tunbridge Wells in May, and Canterbury Cricket Week in August.

Another highlight of Kent’s 2014 season is a one day fixture against Sri Lanka in May, with entry to this match included in Kent’s All Rounder, All Rounder Gold, Championship Plus and Spitfire Memberships.

Following feedback from Members and Supporters, the Club have maintained their 2013 Membership structure, with the All Rounder single prices unchanged for full, Over 65, Student, Family and Country Members.

Kent Cricket are offering Early Bird rates on all Memberships and Packages in the lead up to Christmas. With Junior Memberships for £20, Six Packs for £95, and a new schedule making county cricket more accessible for all, there has never been a better time to join Kent Cricket.

ECB Chief Executive David Collier said: “The 2014 schedule has been designed to make the needs of the fans our number one priority.”

“We welcome Royal London to our family of domestic cricket sponsors for the first time and are also excited about the role the NatWest T20 Blast will play in attracting a wider audience to our county game – with Friday nights providing the perfect opportunity for fans to combine a weekend night out with watching cricket.“
