Please remember to leave plenty of time for your journey, especially as the Great North Run takes place on the same day and starts at a similar time to the game.  

In accordance with ICC regulations all spectators will be searched prior to admission to the ground. 

Durham County Cricket Club Chief Executive, David Harker, said, “With a capacity crowd of 18,000 attending Sunday’s match we want to stress to spectators the importance of leaving plenty of time for their journey to the ground.  Gates open at 8.00am so we’re encouraging fans to get here early and enjoy the atmosphere at Riverside ahead of the game starting at 10.15am.”
