Sussex will not playing at any of their outgrounds in 2021.

It means they will not play at Arundel, Eastbourne or Horsham.

They will instead play all men’s home first team matches at The 1st Central County Ground.

The decision was taken in consultation with the club’s partners at Arundel Castle CC, Eastbourne CC and Horsham CC, who agreed that current circumstances make it impossible to host outground cricket this summer.

Sussex Cricket chief executive Rob Andrew said: “After being unable to visit our wonderful outgrounds last summer, we had all hoped that Sussex would be able to play at Arundel, Eastbourne and Horsham in 2021.

"Sadly, the operational requirements of hosting matches as the country emerges from the pandemic mean that it isn’t feasible to take the team away from The 1st Central County Ground.

“Bringing county cricket to as many parts of Sussex as possible continues to be very important to the club and we look forward to playing at our outgrounds in 2022 and beyond.

"I’d like to thank James, Ian and Chris for their understanding and their continued enthusiasm for hosting us in the years to come.”
