Please note that the tickets are for Sunday’s play in the second Test between England and New Zealand and should be collected on the day from the Ticket Collection Point, Yorkshire Cricket Centre, St Michael’s Lane, opposite the main entrance into the Headingley stadium. The collection point will open from 8am on Sunday.
Following England’s victory over New Zealand in the Investec First Test Match at Lord’s this weekend, ticket sales for the Second Test Match at Headingley, starting this Friday, are selling fast.
Due to the demand from the public, the ticket office at Headingley will be open until 7pm every night this week as the exploits of Alastair Cook’s men and the opportunity to watch Yorkshire’s Joe Root play his first Test Match on his home ground captures the imagination of the sporting public.
Tickets start from £30 adults and with the interest mounting ahead of the opening day on Friday, club officials are urging fans to book early to ensure they reserve their seat.
“Ticket sales have accelerated following England’s victory at Lord’s,” said Yorkshire’s commercial director Andy Dawson.
“We have had tremendous interest from the public and we anticipate interest to continue for the rest of this week. Tickets for the first two days, Friday and Saturday, are the most popular and certain areas of the ground are close to selling out.
“The most convenient way to book is online. This service is available 24 hours a day. We also offer a ‘print at home’ service enabling fans to print their ticket off without having to queue at the ground.”
The most convenient way to buy a ticket for the Headingley Test Match is to purchase online and use the ‘Print At Home’ service. Log onto yorkshireccc.com and click on tickets.

Alternatively, the Ticket Office at Headingley will be open from 9am-7pm every day this week to cope with the demand.
