There are now less than 1,000 tickets remaining for Leicestershire’s Twenty20 Cup quarter-final against Kent Spitfires at Grace Road on Monday July 24.
The high level of interest in the match means the Foxes are fast approaching a sellout crowd which will exceed their previous Twenty20 record of 5,534 for last year’s quarter final against Middlesex Crusaders.
Tickets have been selling fast since they first went on sale last Wednesday after the draw for the Twenty20 Cup quarter finals paired Leicestershire with the Kent Spitfires and set up a big occasion for Grace Road.
Leicestershire’s Chief Executive Paul Maylard-Mason said: “It’s fantastic news and the advice for anyone wishing to come along to the quarter final is book as quickly as possible or you may miss out.
“Interest in this season’s quarter-final has been far greater than it was this time last year and that is why we are confident of selling out.”
Advanced ticket prices will be £12.00 for adults and £8.00 for Under-18s, while admission on the gate will be £15.00 for adults and £10.00 for Under-18s.

Hospitality places start at £55.00 per head and further information can be obtained by contacting the Corporate Sales team on 0871 282 1872.
Meanwhile Gloucestershire have begun their own countdown to their Monday Twenty20 quarter-final with the the Surrey Brown Caps.
Tickets have been selling fast and there are now only a quarter still available and the 8,000 capacity ground is filling up very quickly.
GCCC chief executive Tom Richardson stated: “The way our team responded to a hefty defeat in the first game of the regional group was magnificent and the run of six wins on the bounce has set us up well for the quarter final.
“Surrey Brown Caps are a strong team but we are in great Twenty20 form and of course have a home advantage.
“It has all the hall marks of an extremely good game and as tickets are going like wildfire our advice is to get in quick and on the day to try to get to the ground a bit earlier.”
