Why can I not purchase a ticket for matches scheduled in May and June when you should be able to accommodate a 50% capacity?
Somerset County Cricket Club has a strong Membership base and eligible Members will be given priority access to these fixtures. As a result, fixtures scheduled between these dates will not go on general sale.
Will you be expecting to go on sale with these match days at a later date?
This will be subject to availability following a Members ballot and will be determined by ground capacity.
Can I select my own seat when buying T20 tickets?
Yes. Our ticketing system received an upgrade this winter, allowing supporters to view a ground map online and pick preferred seating arrangements through the online purchase.
When will my tickets arrive?
You should receive a confirmation email on completion of your purchase. E-tickets will be then emailed out over the next few weeks
What happens if I purchase a ticket for a match after the 21st of June, but the lifting of restrictions is delayed?
If fixtures for which tickets have been sold are cancelled or updated to be played behind closed doors due to a tightening in the government restrictions, ticket purchasers will be eligible to receive a full and automatic refund. This will be processed onto the payment method used to complete the original purchase and will be for the ticket value only.

I have purchased tickets but unfortunately now need to self-isolate, what is the COVID-19 Ticket Refund Policy?
If ticket purchasers are unable to attend a fixture due to COVID-19 related illness or a period of self-isolation, purchasers may request to transfer their purchase to another fixture during the 2021 (subject to isolation period ending and availability) or 2022 season. This request must be received at least 24 hours in advance of the match date.

What additional measures will be in place when I visit the CACG in 2021?

If you are required to wear a mask, follow social distancing rules, carry out hand hygiene regimes etc then you must do so. Entry to the ground will be by certain gates and a one-way system will be in place.

Somerset County Cricket Club will continue to work with the ECB and follow protocols set out by the UK Government on the roadmap outlined. At this stage a vaccine will not be required to enter the ground this summer.
I have a 2021 Gift Voucher, what happens if this cannot be used in 2021 due COVID-19 restrictions?

How will Somerset manage reduced capacity crowds from May 17th to June 20th?
With reduced capacity crowds potentially returning from May 17th, 2021, Somerset County Cricket Club would like to announce preliminary plans on how the Club will manage this process.
Recent work undertaken at the Cooper Associates County Ground has identified that with social distancing measures in place, along with additional protocols to further protect the playing environment, the Ground will be able to hold in the region of 2,000 spectators.
Somerset County Cricket Club has a strong Membership base and eligible Members will be given priority access to these fixtures. As a result, matches scheduled between these dates will not go on general sale unless Government guidance changes to allow a higher capacity.
A Ballot process is scheduled to go live in April with priority given to the following groups:
- 2021 Early Bird Eligible Members (2021 Members who would be entitled to attend the fixture under “normal” circumstances)
- 2021 Other Members (2021 Members who purchased after the Early Bird window and also those who would not be entitled to attend the fixture under “normal” circumstances)
- Register your Interest Group (Supporters who have recently filled in an online form to gain priority access.
- General Ticket Purchasers
To enter the Ballot, to ensure a safe environment for all attendees, Members will be required to opt into the 2021 COVID-19 Spectator Code of Conduct and subsequent amendment to the Ground Regulations. These updates will be published in due course.
Will I be able to sit in my usual seat and with my friends for these fixtures?
No. Given the reduced capacity regulations it will be necessary for you to sit in the seat that you have been assigned. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.
Do I need to enter the ballot or as a Member am I automatically put in it?
All Members will need to enter the ballot manually, this will not be automatic. More information will be published in due course.
I have T20 included in my membership, does this mean I have to still buy tickets for matches after 21st June?
No. Once we are back to full capacity, Members with allocated seating already purchased will be able to turn up and scan Membership cards like in previous seasons.
What additional measures will be in place when I visit the CACG in 2021?
Whilst social distancing guidelines are in place you will be required to adhere to these. You will need to follow ECB and Government guidelines whilst inside the Cooper Associates County Ground. You may be required to wear a face covering, follow social distancing rules, and maintain regular hand hygiene practices. Entry to the ground will be by named gates and one-way systems may be in place.
If I am unsuccessful in the ballots and with a portion of the season being played behind closed doors, will I be entitled to a proportionate refund this year?
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. This will be managed at the conclusion of the 2021 season.
I have been successful in a Member Ballot but now cannot attend as I must self-isolate, what can I do?
Please inform us as soon as possible and do not attend the match.Back to News
