With the County Cricket season now underway, online parking portal YourParkingSpace.co.uk shows how much county supporters could save in parking costs by searching online beforehand.

Many cricket grounds are near busy city centre locations with many fans opting to stump up and pay for traditional parking on the day, often much more than searching on-line beforehand for the best deals.

Indeed, research shows that for the first day of the County Cricket 2018 Championship match at Lords on Friday 27th April to see Middlesex play Glamorgan, a space a mere 6 minutes’ walk away costs just £13 for an eight hour stay with YourParkingSpace.co.uk.

Compare this to an eye-watering £36 for the same length of stay at a traditional car park 15 minutes’ walk away – almost three times as much!

Meanwhile, fans seeing the first day of action between Essex and Lancashire at The CloudFM County Ground in Chelmsford could pay £11.70 for an eight hour stay on Friday 4th May at the Chelmsford City Council run High Chelmer car park compared to just £6.25 and just over 15 minutes’ stroll if booking beforehand with YourParkingSpace.co.uk

Cricket fans in Wales can also be quids in as savings are also possible in Cardiff to see Glamorgan, fresh from their match against Middlesex, battle Kent on the first day of action on Friday 4th May.

Book beforehand with YourParkingSpace.co.uk and it could cost as little as £6.25 for an eight hour stay and just three minutes from The SSE Swalec stadium, compared to £8.40 and an even further walk away at 11 minutes at the Cardiff Council owned Sophia Gardens.

Harrison Woods, managing director at YourParkingSpace.co.uk, said: “Cricket fans will be bowled over by the savings possible parking on nearby rented driveways and empty spaces booked in advance.

“Our research reveals that parking costs can be slashed by more than a half, simply by spending a few minutes online beforehand searching out the best deals with YourParkingSpace.co.uk.”

“Indeed, cricket is surrounded by tradition and this appears to include how people choose to park. We would urge them to break from the norm and look at alternatives, such as driveways and empty spaces.”
