Somerset County Cricket Club Statement: Reserve Day
Somerset County Cricket Club were due to take on Notts Outlaws in the Vitality Blast quarter-final at the Cooper Associates County Ground this afternoon.
Unfortunately, rain throughout the day means that this match will now take place on the reserve day which is tomorrow (Monday August 27th).
Every avenue was pursued in an effort to get the match played today. However, we cannot control the weather and factors like these, which are beyond our control, have seen the match rescheduled for tomorrow. Somerset CCC assure you that we worked with the umpires and the ECB in order to facilitate the match today.
In line with all major knock-out matches, we will now utilise the available reserve day. With any major match it is always the protocol that the reserve day will be utilised should it be required. This has been made clear and was stated in our match preview.
Our ticketing refund policy states that: “If, due to adverse weather, play is restricted or does not take place on the day for which this ticket is valid, you may claim a refund of the match ticket value.” Tickets for the quarter-final are valid for the reserve day and therefore no refund would be available.
We understand that the match being played on the reserve day may make attending the fixture rather more difficult for some people and this is unfortunate for all concerned. However, cricket supporters are well aware of the major match protocol and the need for a reserve day within that procedure.
Those who are unable to attend may wish to utilise our social media channels to facilitate the transferal of match tickets at face value. However, Somerset County Cricket Club can in no way condone any profit making or ticket touting in regard to this or any fixture.
We hope that this has helped to clarify the situation and we look forward to seeing you at the Cooper Associates County Ground tomorrow.Back to News
