This year’s Royal London One-Day Cup is set to culminate in an eagerly anticipated final that will offer spectators nail-biting cricketing action, as well as a fantastic day out and an opportunity to witness history being made at Lord’s, this Saturday 1st July 2017.

The pinnacle of 50-over domestic cricket will see Nottinghamshire take on Surrey with this year’s final taking place in a new mid-season slot rather than late September – making it the perfect day out for sports fans everywhere.

In addition to witnessing a thrilling encounter at the Home of Cricket, visitors will be treated to a range of activities themed as a quintessential British summer’s day including picnics behind the Pavilion, cricket croquet and even giant jenga.

Not only that, stars from the England men’s and women’s side will also take to the field to coach two young teams in the final of the Gilbert Cup, ensuring there is plenty of entertainment for spectators on the day.

Tom Harrison, ECB Chief Executive Officer, said: “The Royal London One-Day Cup has already served up a feast of cricketing entertainment this summer – with fans being treated to record scores, spectacular displays of power hitting and all the tension and excitement that makes our one-day game such a compelling spectacle.

“So whether you’re a dedicated cricket fan or simply someone who loves a great sporting contest, this is a fantastic opportunity to sample the unique atmosphere of a Lord’s One-Day final and enjoy a truly memorable day out at the Home of Cricket.”

Eighteen teams have been on the road to Lord’s since April, battling for a place in the final. This year sees a repeat of one of the 2015 semi-finals in which Surrey edged Nottinghamshire by only 4 runs in a tightly contested match.

The 2017 Royal London One-Day Cup Final takes place at Lord’s on Saturday 1st July. Tickets are priced from £30 for adults and just £5 for under-16s and are available to buy online now at www.lords.org/final
