Sussex will welcome spectators back to Hove this month.

A limited number will be allowed into their Championship game against Northants, which starts on Thursday, May 27.

It will be the first time the public have been allowed to watch the action at the 1st Central County Ground for 20 months.

Sussex members and official partners will be offered tickets for the match first.

These will be free of charge except for those in the Martlet category, who will be charged their usual £7 entry fee for each day’s play.

Tickets will only be sold online and anti-Covid protocols will be in place.


Sussex are limiting capacity to 800 spectators per day for this match and using it a test event.

They will be hoping to allow rather more fans in for their following Hove fixture - a Vitality T20 Blast derby against Hampshire on June 10.

This week's Championship game at home to Kent, starting on Thursday, will be the last behind closed doors.
