When is the seat renewal deadline?
We have extended our seat renewal deadline so that One-Day plus Club & One-Day Members have until January 20th to retain their seat.
I donated my 2020 Membership to the Club. How do I claim my discount on 2021 Membership?
Members who donated their fee in 2020 can claim a further £20 reduction on the ‘early bird’ price of their Membership fee if purchasing before January 31st, 2021. Further information on how to claim your discount will be enclosed in your Membership packs.
I usually pay for my Membership by Direct Debit. What do I need to do this year?
Any existing Direct Debit payments will continue unless you inform the Club that you wish to alter your payment method. We will be in touch in early January to confirm your payment schedule.
If you pay by Direct Debit and have an allocated seat, please contact the Commercial Team from 10am on Tuesday December 1st.
Can I pay in person?
Sadly, at this stage, the Club Offices are currently closed to the general public as our Reception area does not allow for appropriate social distancing. Payment can be make via the post, online or by phoning 01823 425301 (Mon-Fri, 10am to 4pm).
There is the prospect of reduced crowds being allowed into the Cooper Associates County Ground in 2021. How are the Club going to manage this?
If capacities are restricted due to such measures in 2021, ‘Early Bird’ Members who submit their application before January 31st will be given priority access via a ballot system to the Cooper Associates County Ground along with Life Members.
What happens to my Membership if the games are played behind closed doors again in 2021?
Members are at the heart of our Club. To allow you to take out Membership for 2021 with peace of mind, we are offering you a COVID-19 assurance.
If, due to Government restrictions, we are prevented from allowing members into the ground on match days you will be given the option of claiming a proportionate refund or donating your Membership fee to the club.
In the event of ground capacity being restricted, those members who take advantage of the ‘early bird’ offer and submit their membership application before January 31st 2021, will receive priority access ahead of other members and match day ticket buyers.
Will it be safe for me to come to the Cooper Associates County Ground in 2021?
Somerset County Cricket Club will continue to follow Public Health England and Government guidance with regards to hygiene practices in order to protect you, our Members, Supporters and also our Staff. We have been successfully following these procedures to date and you may have seen the venue was awarded “Good to Go” status for the Stragglers Coffee House recently.
Sadly, whilst COVID-19 remains in circulation, there will always be an element of risk with transmission but with our measures in place and with the support and co-operation of our visitors adhering to these measures, we hope to mitigate as many of these as possible.
When will fixtures be released?
Here are the fixtures for the 2021 County Championship, with the full list to follow in early 2021.
