Cricket Foundation

Match Day Experience

As part of the Yorkshire Social Club, the Foundation give free YCCC match tickets to service users of Older People’s services in Yorkshire.

Each year, the Foundation look to provide those seeking more social opportunities the chance to watch Yorkshire County Cricket Club play at Headingley, free of charge. Those who receive tickets for games either already attend one of the Foundations groups, or are members of local neighbourhood network services who benefit from day trips out.

Home fixtures are advertised to local neighbourhood networks, community groups and YCF service users who can then book themselves a place. Included in the day, are optional sessions such as sporting reminiscence groups, casual table tennis and tea and coffee stops.

This offer has proven successful, with hundreds of people taking up the offer of tickets each year the scheme has ran.

“I had a lovely day and I’m looking forward to next year already.”
