The first Roses clash of the NatWest Twenty20 Blast is close to being a sell-out.
Yorkshire Vikings will host the keenly-anticipated match against Lancashire Lightning on June 5 under the new Headingley lights and already 98 per cent of tickets have been sold.
With only a handful of single tickets left to sell Yorkshire have on Wednesday released a number of restricted view and very restricted view seats at £20 (restricted) and £12 (very restricted).
The match is being dubbed the ‘Game of Roses’ with Yorkshire hoping to announce another 16,500 sell-out for the cross-border rivalry.
“It is great news that we are heading for a sell-out for the third successive season,” said Yorkshire’s commercial director Andy Dawson.
“Due to the demand for tickets, we have made a number of restricted view seats available. There are some good seats to be had and we would urge anyone interested in being part of the spectacle to buy now. They won’t last long and we expect all tickets to be sold by the end of the week.
“The demand for tickets has been incredible with supporters clamouring to be part of the action. It goes to show the popularity of the NatWest T20 Blast competition that we are able to announce a sell-out a month before the game is due to be played.
“Normally we are usually selling tickets right up until a few days before the match.”
To take advantage of these seats, bookings can only be made by calling the Yorkshire Ticket Office on 0843 504 3099 and press option one or by calling in person (The Ticket Office, Yorkshire Cricket Centre, St Michael’s Lane, Leeds, LS6 3BU). Opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am-5pm.
