2021 International fixture dates released for Trent Bridge

Dates have been revealed for international cricket’s return to Trent Bridge in 2021, with India and Pakistan each taking on England at the height of next summer.

The home of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club will provide the setting for a titanic Test tussle from Wednesday 4 to Sunday 8 August, as Virat Kohli leads India into battle against England in the opening fixture of the series.

The return of cricket's most storied format will be preceded by a Vitality International T20 on Friday 16 July, with England's white-ball outfit returning to Trent Bridge for the first time since winning the World Cup. The fixture will be Trent Bridge's first taste of 20-over action on the world stage since 2012.

Priority access to tickets is reserved for those in receipt of a 2021 Nottinghamshire membership.

Alternatively, those who are interested in attending international matches at Trent Bridge in 2021 without becoming a member can enter the ticketing ballot here…

Individuals who chose to retain credit following the displacement of international fixtures in 2020 will be contacted directly by the club with full details on how to secure their seats in the first of the non-member priority windows.

Those who have purchased tickets for bilateral internationals at Trent Bridge in the last three years will also have an opportunity to secure seats prior to ballot allocations and general sale.

No booking fees will be charged and seats can be secured safe in the knowledge that a full refund will be made available should there be any changes to the dates of the fixtures, or in the event of spectator admittance not being permitted due to Covid-19.

“After this most unusual and difficult of years, there is something a little more significant about seeing our international dates for next summer inked into the diary,” said Nottinghamshire’s Commercial Director Michael Temple.

“We have dearly missed being able to host the world’s best this summer, and going without our annual instalment of international cricket has only served to remind us of how special world-class sport at Trent Bridge can be.

“We are saddened that we have not had the opportunity to welcome our members and supporters over the past few months. There can be no doubting that our historic home does not feel quite the same without the warmth of our knowledgeable, passionate crowd.

“We can’t wait to extend our trademark Trent Bridge welcome to one-and-all once again.”
