The 2019 Vitality Blast season gets underway with a home fixture against Northamptonshire Steelbacks on Friday 19 July and under-19s go free ahead of our season opener. 

Did your Kids get a taste of Cricket World Cup fever? There's still lots of cricketing fun to look forward to this summer, so why not bring your children and grandchildren along for what should be a thrilling game of T20 cricket.

D'Arcy Short will make his Durham debut, which means one thing, the leading run scorer in last winter’s Big Bash league will sure be on top form, hitting boundaries galore. 

James Franklin’s men will be looking to progress from the North group into the quarter finals and the pening game of the season will be the perfect chance to see the squad in action.

The club’s Liontrust Family Zone which was launched last summer, will also be back out in full swing, which will see the return of our catching zone, batting simulator, speed cage.

Durham Cricket Marketing Director, David Jackson, said“We always have a great atmosphere at our T20 fixtures and that is in no small part down to the enthusiasm of youth!

“I am confident that anyone who attends will have a great time so by offering free entry to the first game, it really allows us to show off what we have to offer and hopefully that helps us generate the next generation of Durham Cricket fans". 

“Aside from the action on the field, there is plenty for all the family to enjoy around the ground on T20 fixture day – we have our LionTrust Family Zone open every game and that has been massively popular since we introduced it three years ago.”
