Know Your Royal London One-Day Cup Cricket
Royal London One-Day Cup matches are played to a finish over the course of one-day with 50 overs-per-side.
50-over cricket is traditionally more considered, and less hectic, than the all-out explosive action of the NatWest T20 Blast – but the balance is shifting and there’s nothing quite like the fluctuating drama of a run chase.
With the current trend towards playing the game in an entertaining and dynamic way, 50-over cricket is resurgent as a form of entertainment around the world – a format watched by a sell-out crowd of 17,000 each time England play a Royal London One-Day International at our venue.
The Notts Outlaws are contesting a group of nine in this year’s competition, with Worcestershire, Derbyshire Falcons, Warwickshire Bears, Leicestershire Foxes, Durham, Lancashire Lightning, Yorkshire Vikings and Northamptonshire Steelbacks competing alongside the Outlaws for a top three finish and qualification.
The tournament culminates in the grand occasion of a final at the spiritual and traditional home of world cricket, Lord’s.
It’s a dream for every county cricketer to get there, something the Outlaws last achieved in 2013, so the stakes are certainly high.
The weather can take turns during the afternoon/evening, so please bring clothing to cover all eventualities.
In The Event Of Bad Weather
Fittingly as the nation’s summer sport, we can’t play cricket in the rain.
However, our friendly refund policy ensures that you can purchase tickets safe in the knowledge that the elements won’t hit you in the pocket...
If play is restricted to less than 20 overs and there is no result, you will be entitled to a refund of the face value of your ticket. Only the original purchaser of the ticket from Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club can be refunded. Alternatively you can exchange your tickets for a future Royal London One-Day Cup or Specsavers County Championship match in 2017.
If play exceeds 20 overs but there is no result (i.e. the game is abandoned due to poor weather) you will be able to exchange your ticket for a future Royal London One-Day Cup or Specsavers County Championship match in 2017.
In the event of a match being abandoned, any complimentary tickets issued will not be valid for alternative fixtures.
If play exceeds 20 overs, and the game has a result, then no refunds or exchanges will be offered.
Grace The Hallowed Turf
During the 45-minute innings interval, weather permitting, you'll be able to make your way onto our hallowed turf, with a bat and ball, and crack on with an impromptu game.
