The ECB Launch Free Tickets Initiative for Kids

‘Kids go Free’ in ECB cricket push



The England and Wales Cricket Board has announced that all 18 First Class Counties and Scotland will offer free tickets to children attending Yorkshire Bank 40 games during the summer holidays.

Between 2nd and 26th August 2013 a total of 31 games will be available free of charge for any child under 16 visiting any of the selected matches with a paying adult, as part of a new ECB initiative that aims to attract more youngsters to watch live cricket at their local county.

The promotion starts with Surrey’s match against Essex Eagles at the Kia Oval on Friday 2nd August and closes with the last round of group matches on August Bank Holiday Monday 26th, with teams fighting it out to qualify for the semi-finals.

David Collier, ECB chief executive, said: ‘We are delighted to offer this unique opportunity to young cricket fans this summer as we look to take advantage of the increased interest cricket enjoys during an Ashes summer.’

‘I would encourage any parent whose child may be interested in the sport to get down to their local County ground and experience the game live during the school holidays.’
