Having topped the Friends Life t20 South Group, the Hampshire Royals have been paired with North Group Runners-Up Lancashire in a home Quarter-Final on Wednesday 7 August (1910hrs start).
It means a reunion with former Ageas Bowl favorites, Simon Katich and Kabir Ali, who left the South coast for the Red Rose county last winter.
The draw was made following the Royals' eight run victory over the Middlesex Panthers on Wednesday night. Other fixtures were as follows: Surrey v Somerset (Tuesday 6 August, 1600hrs), Northamptonshire v Durham (Tuesday 6 August, 1900hrs) and Nottinghamshire v Essex (Thursday 8 August, 1900hrs).
Tickets go on sale to Hampshire Cricket Members, Debenture holders and Royals fans who attended one or more group matches this season from 10am on Thursday (1 August). They are then released to the general public at 10am on Friday (2 August).
Given the massive increase in crowds at The Ageas Bowl this season with more than double the number of spectators compared to last year, Club officials are expecting the ground to sell out in record-breaking time and so have taken the step to reward previous customers with a priority booking period.
Tickets can be bought online via the Ageas Bowl Ticketing website, over the phone on 0844 847 1863 (24 hours a day) or in person at The Ageas Bowl ticket office (find us) during normal office hours.
