Spitfires vs. Bears: Quarter Final update

With Kent Spitfires having secured a home Quarter Final after a record-breaking win over Middlesex on Friday to win the Vitality Blast South Group, the Club can confirm that it will be seeking to raise capacity at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence for the knockout match.

Birmingham Bears will be the visitors to The Spitfire Ground on Friday 27 August, a scheduled 19:00 start.

To allow the Membership and Ticketing team to support the forthcoming Royal London Cup matches at Beckenham, Members and supporters are asked to wait for further news on Quarter Final ticket availability via the Club’s website and social media by Friday 23 July.

The Club has successfully implemented extensive protocols to ensure that both its venues, The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence and The County Ground, Beckenham are as safe as possible for its players, staff, Members and supporters. Further clarity on matches at The County Ground, Beckenham was announced on Sunday.

With the hope that the Club’s NHS ‘Test and Trace’ requirements will be reduced from 16 August, and Vitalty Blast Quarter Finals scheduled to take place at the end of August, Kent Cricket will continue to work with key stakeholders including ECB, the Safety Advisory Group at Canterbury City Council and Public Health authorities on a scenario that takes a safe capacity up to at least 4,000 spectators.

A further announcement will be released in due course regarding ticketing for Members and supporters for this match.
