Vitality Blast matchdays at Uptonsteel County Ground have become even more exciting with the addition of a brand new Fan Zone complete with food and drinks, music and lots more.

A specialised hub where fans can congregate before the game, the Fan Zone will help to amplify the pre-match party-style atmosphere, with supporters able to indulge live entertainment from our resident DJ, while food and drink stalls, including a rooftop container bar, and an outside seating area with tables, chairs and parasols, will also be available.

The food outlets will be serving different types of cuisine that will change on a match-by-match basis, with all outlets serving vegetarian and vegan options. An ice cream and sweets stall will also be on offer.

Located in the car park behind the Melton Building Society Family Stand, the Fan Zone will launch 90 minutes before the start of play, when gates open.

The Foxes Den will be running a range of cricket skills activities ran by the Leicestershire County Cricket Club Community Team, while there will also be inflatables and face painting.

Fans should also look out for Charlie Fox, who may pay a visit to supporters in the Fan Zone!

Jack Bradley, Head of Marketing and Consumer Sales at Leicestershire County Cricket Club, said: “We are really excited to open and welcome fans into the new Fan Zone for the upcoming T20 games.

“We encourage both home and away supporters to come along early before the game to enjoy this great new space and soak up the unique atmosphere at Uptonsteel County Ground”.

The Fan Zone will officially open at the first T20 game of the summer, as Leicestershire Foxes take on Durham Cricket on Thursday 26 May, and will be in action for all Vitality Blast, International and other major matchdays during the season.
