Tickets for Lancashire Lightning’s NatWest T20 Blast campaign are now onsale with children under the age of 11 once again able to watch the Red Rose free of charge, when they join as Thunderbolt for 2015.

TICKETS FOR Lancashire Lightning’s NatWest T20 Blast campaign have gone on sale today (from 11am) with children under the age of 11 once again able to watch the Red Rose free of charge.

It was a memorable tournament for Lightning last term who dominated the North Group and progressed to Finals Day only to miss out right at the death against Birmingham Bears in the final.

Who could forget the swashbuckling sight of Jos Buttler smashing sixes, Steven Croft’s acrobatic fielding, Karl Brown blasting his way to several half-tons or Jordan Clark bowling an unbelievable triple-wicket maiden in the quarter-final against Glamorgan at Emirates Old Trafford?

Under the direction of Ashley Giles, 2015 promises to be another exciting year for Lightning who will be determined to go one step further and pick up the coveted trophy at Edgbaston.

And with an adult season ticket for all seven group games starting at just £60 or £30 for children aged between 12 and 17, watching cricket at Emirates Old Trafford is exceptional value for money.

Not only will there be explosive action on the field of play, but we will provide scintillating entertainment off it in the form of live music from our renowned fan village which is full of fun filled activities and food and drink options.

Five of the seven group games will take place on a Friday evening – is there a better way to start off your weekend?

And don’t forget, our ‘friends’ from across the Pennines will be coming over to God’s country on Friday 3 July! If there was ever a date for your diaries then this is it! They had the audacity to beat us on our own patch last year, while the rain saved them at Headingley! They won’t be so fortunate this time!

While a season ticket represents the best value for money – you get seven games for the price of six– buying tickets for individual matches is very easy and affordable, especially if you buy them in advance.

LCCC’s Head of Marketing, Hollie Costigan, said:

“NatWest T20 Blast cricket at Emirates Old Trafford was a big hit last year – and it promises to be the same again in 2015. Playing the majority of our games on a Friday Night has proved to be very popular and we experienced an attendance growth of 66% on the previous year.

“We received acclaim for our fan village last year and we will be looking to make it bigger and better this year so that fans will be entertained on and off the pitch making it a fun and affordable experience for all the family.”

Tickets for adults are priced at only £10 if bought in advance of the fixture, while children aged between 12 and 17 will pay only £5. Please note: if you decide to buy your tickets within a week of the fixture then they will be priced at £15 and £7.50 respectively.

We also have a VIP ticket priced at £35 (£42 for the Yorkshire Vikings game) which includes access to a suite plus food and refreshments. See www.lccc.co.uk for more details.
