Durham County Cricket Club’s Vitality Blast tickets went on sale in March and Durham Jets’ fans have moved quickly to secure their seat at Emirates Riverside this summer.

Three months on from tickets going on general sale, the club are encouragingly tracking ahead of any previous Blast campaign at this stage, with season tickets and individual game tickets both recording record pre-season numbers.

Durham are on course to excel their pre-season target attendance of 30,000 overall ticket sales and achieve a record crowd for Durham Jets’ Derby Day fixture against the Yorkshire Vikings on July 13.

Many Durham members took advantage of the early-bird Derby Day Double Deal that went on sale at the end of February and supporters have also snapped up tickets for the ‘Kids Go Free’ offer for the Worcestershire home fixture on July 20.

The club have also offered all of the children who signed up to the ECB’s All Stars Cricket initiative a free Durham membership as we continue to build DCCC’s fanbase and presented the parents with a season ticket offer with a 70% saving. 

This has significantly increased the number of junior members and families attending the Blast fixtures this summer.

Durham have received plenty of positive feedback since revealing their family-friendly 2018 campaign and the #ForTheNorth initiative has proved to be extremely popular.

This year Durham will have their Liontrust Family Zone at every Blast fixture, which includes batting games, fielding inflatables, our Jets speed cage, All Stars zone, sweets, face painters and many more activities. It’s also the home of our brand-new mascots, who will be ready to pose for selfies and photographs prior and during the game.

Jets season tickets are available now for £70 & £20 for juniors, which gives you access to all seven of Durham Jets’ home games at Emirates Riverside. They can be purchased on the official Durham website or by calling the box office on 08444 994 466. Individual match tickets are also available.
