In line with the recently announced delay to the government's roadmap out of lockdown, our capacity will continue to be restricted beyond the originally announced date of Monday 21 June.
Should you wish to visit Trent Bridge during the next three fixtures in the Vitality Blast, or the LV= Insurance County Championship contest against Derbyshire starting on Sunday 4 July, you will now be required to claim match tickets at no cost in advance via the same process established for the recent games against Worcestershire and Birmingham Bears, and for this Friday’s fixture against Derbyshire Falcons.
Fixtures for which you should now claim tickets are as follows:
- Tuesday 22 June (6pm): Notts Outlaws vs Worcestershire Rapids
- Saturday 26 June (11am & 3pm): Lightning vs Stars (Women’s T20) and Notts Outlaws vs Lancashire Lightning
- Thursday 1 July: Notts Outlaws vs Leicestershire Foxes (6.30pm)
- 4-7 July: Nottinghamshire vs Derbyshire (11am)
A further window to claim tickets for the final two Vitality Blast fixtures, versus Yorkshire Vikings on Friday 9 July and versus Durham on Sunday 18 July will commence on Tuesday 29 June.
I’m a 2021 member. How do I claim a ticket/tickets?
Log in to your online ticketing account at tickets.trentbridge.co.uk, or call 0115 899 0300 if you do not have one.
When transacting online, use the links on screen if you need to reset or activate your account.
You will need to be logged into your account in order to secure a ticket, using the email address associated with your membership, and be clicked onto the 'Account' section in order to access your member exclusive offer.
If you are claiming tickets for more than one match, once the ticket(s) for the first game are in your basket, you will be able to click 'continue shopping' to also secure seats for the remaining games. Once you have done so, kindly remember that you'll need to return to the 'Account' section to access member tickets as opposed to the main 'Tickets' homepage.
Once you have reserved your seat(s), you will receive a confirmation email and your ticket will be stored within the ‘My Orders’ section of your ticketing account, which is accessible via the ‘Account’ menu item, for printing at home or downloading to your smartphone in advance of your visit to Trent Bridge.
Kindly note that the downloading of your tickets and/or car park passes, together with either printing them or sending them to your phone, is something you will need to do prior to arriving at the gates of Trent Bridge.
Please be aware that the order confirmation you receive by email is not your match ticket or car park pass in itself, and will not be sufficient to gain entry.
You will need to log back into your ticketing account, click into ‘My Orders’ within the ‘Account’ section and download your tickets from there – or request for a ticket to be printed and posted by our ticket office staff.
Are members guaranteed a ticket?
Due to the short timeframes between now and the fixture against Worcestershire Rapids on Tuesday 22 June, your priority window will close at 12 noon on Friday 18 June.
Your priority window for the Lancashire Lightning, Leicestershire Foxes and Derbyshire fixtures will close one week prior to the start of the game.
It is entirely possible that we will be over-subscribed for these fixtures in relation to membership demand. We would, therefore, recommend securing your seats at the earliest opportunity.
Subject to availability, you will be able to select where you wish to sit. The seats surrounding your booking will then be blocked out in accordance with social distancing guidance.
We ask that you only claim tickets if you are able to attend, and let us know via email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you secure a ticket but your circumstances change and you are no longer able to come. This will allow us to make your seat available to others.
Can I choose where I sit and who I sit with?
You will be able to select your seats in line with social distancing protocols which have been established for this fixture.
If you are booking online, link your account to that of other members of your household and/or support bubble using the ‘Friends and Family’ option within the ‘Account’ section.
Once you have linked your membership account to that of other members within your household and/or support bubble, then you may select adjacent seats and assign them to the fellow members within your group.
Our system will automatically surround you with empty seats to comply with venue safety guidance.
If you wish to sit near to friends or family who are not within your household or support bubble, you should co-ordinate your seat selections in separate bookings and we will automatically place a two-seat gap between your groups. Please retain that gap and maintain a safe distance.
In order to maintain a secure environment for players, support staff and match officials, the Pavilion building, Pavilion seating, the rear of the Pavilion and the nearby entry point to our venue will be closed to both members and non-members, and referred to as a ‘red zone’.
The use of lifts will be severely restricted in the interests of Covid safety. Therefore, if you’re not comfortable taking the stairs, we’d heartily advise you not to secure seats within the middle or upper tiers of the Radcliffe Road Stand.
I’m involved in a support bubble. Can we all attend together?
If you are part of a lawful support bubble in line with government guidance, you are permitted to attend as a group.
Can I secure seats on the day of the game or gain admission with my membership card?
No, all seats must be reserved in advance of the day of the game to enable us to safely prepare the ground for the fixture.
Tickets can be booked and obtained online and presented either on smartphone or having been printed at home. Information for those without access to either facility is listed within the final FAQ at the bottom of this guide.
Entry without a valid ticket will not be permitted and there will be no ticket collections on the day of the game.
We request that you also bring along your membership card as it could be of assistance to us in the case of experiencing any difficulties on the day.
I do not wish to attend some/ all of these upcoming fixtures, should I take any action?
If you are not intending to attend, you need take no action. You may wish to watch the match live via our streaming service at trentbridge.co.uk/live.
Can I bring a guest?
During the member priority window, we will be unable to provide access to tickets for guests, as we ensure that our members are given priority.
What should I do if I have already purchased a ticket on behalf of a guest?
Subject to availability, once the exclusive window for members comes to an end, there may be an opportunity for those who have already purchased general admission tickets for the fixture to secure seats.
If you have already purchased tickets on behalf of guests, we would advise you to secure your own seat at no extra cost as a member now. If you are then able to claim seats for your guest(s) within a later general admission purchasers’ window, you will be able to contact our friendly Ticket Office team and, so long as you are part of the same household or support bubble, we will endeavour to merge the two bookings. Kindly note, however, that this may not be possible.
In the event of insufficient capacity for general admission ticket purchasers to be allocated seats, they will be covered by a refund guarantee.
What time will gates be open?
Gates will open one hour prior to the start of play:
- Outlaws v Rapids, Tuesday 22 June: 5pm
- Lightning v Stars (Women's T20) and Outlaws v Lightning Double Header, Saturday 26 June: 10am
- Outlaws v Foxes, Thursday 1 July: 5.30pm
- Outlaws v Vikings, Friday 9 July: 5.30pm
- Outlaws v Durham, Sunday 18 July: 3pm (or 5.30pm if the fixture is chosen for coverage by Sky)
In order to prevent unnecessary queues, please arrive from the time stipulated above and do so via the gate printed on your ticket.
Which gate should I use?
The gate through which you should enter the venue will be displayed upon your match ticket. In order for us to regulate the flow of people, not all gates will be open.
How much are tickets?
Tickets are available at no extra charge to 2021 members. Any remaining tickets made available to visiting members or non-members will cost:
£21 for adults, £15 for senior citizens, £15 for under 21s, £10 for under 16s and £45 for a family of four.
How do I secure a wheelchair position or a seat with disability or accessibility needs?
To secure a wheelchair position or to let us know about your disability or accessibility needs, please contact us via email@example.com or 0115 899 0300 and our friendly team will endeavour to help you.
Do I need to bring my own face covering and hand sanitiser?
Yes, please bring your own face covering, which we kindly request that you wear when arriving and moving around the ground.
A face covering is not required whilst in your seat, and please feel free to remove it whilst consuming food or drink.
If you forget or lose your face covering, have a chat with your nearest steward who will be able to assist you.
Hand sanitiser will be provided, but a bottle of your own might prove useful nonetheless.
Will I be permitted to swap seats, move around the stand and socialise within the venue?
Sadly, no. To ensure compliance with government guidance, your allocated seat must be the only one you frequent throughout. Please ensure that you maintain a safe distance between yourself and other groups throughout the course of the event.
Will food and drink be available at the ground?
A number of catering outlets will be positioned around the ground with bar, snack and limited hot food provision available, all via cashless payments only.
If you are unsure as to the location of your nearest catering outlet, one of our friendly stewards will be delighted to assist you.
Members and non-members will be permitted to bring their own food and drink. Kindly note that glass containers will not be permitted and that, whilst up to one litre of wine or beer will be allowed on County Championship match days, importation of alcohol will be prohibited at all fixtures in the Blast.
Will toilet facilities be open?
Yes, toilet facilities will be open and signposted, albeit not in red zone areas such as the Hound Road concourse and the Pavilion.
Stewards will be on hand to guide you in relation to your nearest facility.
What about the Club Shop, Ticket Office and library?
The Club Shop, situated beneath the back of the Radcliffe Road Stand, will be open, albeit with limits applied to the numbers that can enter at any one time. Additional retail units will also be open in the TBI Courtyard and to the rear of the Yu Energy Stand.
The Ticket Office, Radcliffe Road reception and library will be closed, however, if you have any questions on the day, please seek out your nearest steward.
Can I walk around the ground?
Limited movement between concourses will be permitted for the purposes of visiting the toilets, catering facilities and Club Shop.
We do, however, request that this is kept to a minimum, that you wear a face covering, follow directional signage and remain at least two metres apart from your fellow spectators.
Please bear in mind that the ground will become less an oval and more a horseshoe shape owing to the red-zoning of the Pavilion and Hound Road concourse.
Do I need to bring my membership card?
Yes please. Whilst your membership card alone will not grant you access for this fixture, we request that you bring it along as it could be of assistance in the case of experiencing any difficulties on the day.
You must bring your ticket to gain entry having stored it on your smartphone or printed it at home. Information for those without access to either facility is listed within the final FAQ at the bottom of this guide.
Is parking available?
Unfortunately, in order to maximise space for the flow of people with social distancing intact, there will be no car or bicycle parking available on the ground.
Car parking, priced at £2, is available to purchase in tandem with your ticketing transaction. Available locations may vary for each match day but will include Bridge Field (Vitality Blast fixtures), Nottingham Forest (LV= Insurance County Championship fixtures) and Notts Sports Ground. Kindly note that you should download or print your car park passes prior to your arrival at the car park. Our stewards will be unable to accept an order confirmation email in place of a car park pass.
Bicycle parking at the same locations must also be booked in advance as per the above, but will be free of charge.
Will printed scorecards be available at the ground?
Sadly not, however, both of our electronic scoreboards will be in operation and you will have access to free Wi-Fi via _The Cloud. You will be able to follow the live scorecard via trentbridge.co.uk/live and we will make a completed scorecard available via downloadable PDF online in the days that follow the fixture.
Can I leave the venue and come back during the course of the match?
Yes, you will be permitted to leave and re-enter the ground. Please be sure to check-in with a steward on the gate as you leave, as they will need to scan out your ticket in order for you to be allowed back in without any issues.
How do I contact the ticket office on the day of the game?
Although the ticket office building will be closed, you will be able to book tickets for future matchdays online or get in touch by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0115 899 0300. The phone line will be open from 9.30am until close of play.
Opening hours on non-matchdays are 9.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.
I am unable to book online, don’t have an email address, don’t have access to a smartphone or printer or have experienced issues using the system. Can you assist me to secure my tickets?
Yes, our ticket office phone lines are open Monday-Friday 9.30am-4.30pm. Please call 0115 899 0300 for assistance or email email@example.com.
