Game wide position on Return of Crowds

Attendees can take take some small, voluntary actions to protect each other and help everyone feel comfortable attending cricket

Like everyone in sport, we look forward to welcoming large crowds back to cricket as national restrictions lift from today.  

With COVID-19 still in circulation, the safety of our players, staff, members and spectators across cricket, remains a key priority. 

Shortly, the Government will share guidance on how they wish large sports venues to manage COVID in the coming weeks and months.  

As a game, we will adopt a risk-based approach, that is consistent with the Government’s policies. These will be decided at a local level, as our grounds work with their local safety groups to assess conditions and create measures that mitigate any risks. Our venues will publish this information in the coming weeks. 

In the meantime, we’re asking everyone to take some small, voluntary actions to protect each other and help everyone feel comfortable attending cricket.  

Please help us to protect the wider cricket family, by;

  • Not travelling if you have symptoms or are in any doubt about your health.
  • Considering wearing face masks in crowded indoor areas.
  • Respecting the rules of the venue you are attending and following the guidance of stewards who are working to keep the ground safe.
  • Using hand sanitising stations throughout our venues.
  • Trying to take a lateral flow test before you travel 
  • Getting vaccinated, so that we have more people attending cricket that are double jabbed.

For ticket holders attending matches in Wales, please check in advance with venues to understand local guidance.
