A Closer Look: Royal London Cup

Take a look at the Royal London Cup schedule for 2020 as Hampshire look to reach a third successive List A final

Following last week's 2020 fixture announcement, we're delving deeper into what each competition holds next season, this time focusing on the Royal London Cup.

In a re-shuffle of the domestic schedule, Hampshire will begin their 2020 Royal London Cup campaign in the height of the summer with next year's competition getting underway in July.

With counties' opposition no longer organised by region from next season, Worcestershire will be Hampshire's opponents in the curtain raiser at the Ageas Bowl on Sunday 19th July.

A trip to Radlett to face Middlesex on Friday 24th July followed by a clash against Kent Spitfires at Tunbridge Wells rounds off the opening three matches.

Hampshire's fourth and fifth group games mark a return to the Ageas Bowl as Essex Eagles head to the south coast on Wednesday 29th July before an 'el clasicoast' clash encounter against Sussex Sharks on Friday 31st July.

Gloucestershire will be the opponents to begin August as Hampshire visit Bristol on Sunday 2nd August before the final away game of the group stage sees the side head to Durham to contest a limited-overs match there for the first time since 2013.

Hampshire's final group-stage fixture marks a return to the Isle of Wight, following this year’s successful visit to Newclose for a four-day fixture against Nottinghamshire – a match which marked the first first-class fixture to be played on the Isle of Wight since 1962. Lancashire will be the opponents at Newclose next summer with the match to take place on Sunday 9th August.

The Royal London Cup's knockout stages swiftly follow the group-stage in 2020 with both quarter-finals and semi-finals taking place on Thursday 13th August and Sunday 16th August respectively.

The competition final, which moves to Trent Bridge for the first time next year, returns to it's previous slot in September with the 2020 curtain-closer set for Saturday 19th September.
