The County Ground will host the England Under-19 versus Pakistan Under-19 One Day International on Friday, 16th August (2pm start) and thanks to match sponsors PAK Foods - a leading ethnic food store serving inner-city communities in Derby and across the East Midlands - supporters who register for tickets in advance can attend for FREE!
Over 2,500 tickets have already been claimed for the eagerly-anticipated international fixture at Derby, in which the two nations compete in the penultimate game of the International Tri Series - contested between England, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The game, therefore, could be key in deciding which two teams compete in the final at Trent Bridge on Monday, 19th August.
England’s youth set-up down the years has produced some of the country’s finest players - including current Test stars Steven Finn, Joe Root, Stuart Broad and Captain Alastair Cook - and supporters will get the opportunity to witness the next crop of emerging talent from both England and Pakistan attempting to break into their respective senior sides.
Pakistan Under-19s are coached by former Pakistan Test player Azam Khan, who featured in one Test and six ODIs between 1996 and 1998. His side, and England, are using the Tri-Series tournament as preparation for the 2014 Under-19 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates, as both nations hope to improve on their eighth and fifth place finishes, respectively, from the 2012 competition.
A diverse range of catering outlets including halal menus will be available at the ground, while the Jackson and Gladwin Suite will be open to all spectators, subject to capacity, offering bar facilities, indoor seating area, outdoor viewing balcony and an opportunity to purchase food and drink.
To attend the floodlit fixture for FREE, claim your tickets before midnight on Thursday, 15th August; either online or by calling 01332 388101. (Maximum four tickets per application. Limited availability - ground capacity is 4,999)
