Australia v Pakistan: Special Offer for Under 16’s

North East youngsters will be able to watch two of the world’s top cricket sides in action next season for just £5.

Australia take on Pakistan at the Riverside on Saturday June 16th 2001 as part of the Nat West Triangular tournament which also involves England.

Durham has set the prices at £25 for adults and just £5 for Under 16’s as part of the on going initiative to encourage juniors to watch cricket.

Following this year’s one day internationals at the Riverside involving England, the West Indies and Zimbabwe, the county club has also decided to introduce an alcohol free family stand for next year’s match.

Chairman Bill Midgley said "We were aware this year that there was some price resistance in the under 16 market to the cost of international tickets. It has always been Durham's policy to encourage youngsters to come to the cricket and by making under 16 tickets only £5, it makes it much more
affordable for families to come for the day."

Members of Durham County Cricket Club will have a priority booking period for international tickets and a discounted rate as a privilege of membership.

Tickets for the general public will go on sale in mid September but anyone wishing to register their interest or find out about 2001 membership should call Durham County Cricket Club on 0191 387 1717.
