Following today’s opening home Vitality Blast fixture against Birmingham Bears and feedback from spectators, we have reviewed our ground regulations.
Worcestershire County Cricket Club continually strives to operate with best practices and the safety and security of all spectators in mind, but are aware that there were long queues in bag search areas during today’s fixture. Additional staff resources will be allocated to complete bag searches for future fixtures to ensure smoother entry.
In addition, the policy which meant no food and drink could be brought into the ground, has been lifted for the remaining Vitality Blast fixtures. Spectators will now be allowed to bring a modest amount of food into the ground for individual consumption; however, as in previous years, no alcohol can be brought into New Road during Vitality Blast fixtures.
Any appropriate food collected during today’s fixture has been donated to a local food bank.
We look forward to welcoming you to our next T20 fixture on Sunday against Leicestershire Foxes.
