Win a pair of passes giving you free entry to The Brewin Dolphin Cheltenham Cricket Festival

Supporters will be able to watch international stars of the future at the Brewin Dolphin Cheltenham Cricket Festival this summer with two international “A” games being held at the historic College Ground for the first time.

England Lions take on Pakistan A on July 19 with the Sri Lanka A facing Pakistan the previous day.

The two matches are part of a bumper programme that is among the most diverse and exciting to be staged at the world’s longest-running cricket festival from July 13 to 24.

The 11 day event includes the chance to see Gloucestershire across all three formats of the game, including the Royal London One-Day Cup which they won in thrilling style at Lord’s last year.

Richard Dawson’s men play Sussex in that competition, face highly-rated Essex in both the NatWest T20 Blast and the County Championship and also entertain a resurgent Leicestershire in the four-day format.

The idyllic setting will provide the perfect stage for some of the top names in world cricket to entertain the famously passionate Cheltenham crowds.

These include Gloucestershire Australian’s duo Michael Klinger (all formats) and Andrew Tye (T20).

A prolific runscorer on both sides of the planet, Klinger returns to the College Ground having been named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) in last year’s NatWest T20 Blast and Royal London One-Day Cup.

This year’s festival will be the first Cheltenham experience for fast bowler Tye who made his Australia T20 debut earlier this year after being one of the standout performers in the last two Big Bash Leagues.

Match Day Tickets cost from just £15 for adults and £3 for under 18s when purchased in advance or why not treat yourself to a Cheltenham Festival Pass and see 12 days of Gloucestershire cricket for only £120. Supporters aged 18 and under can enjoy every day of the Festival (plus domestic matches at Bristol) by becoming a Marshall Member for just £20.

The best way to buy tickets is online at, or call 0117 910 8010.
