Full Fixtures

The month-long title-deciding phase of the LV= Insurance County Championship begins later this month with four additional rounds of matches to be staged to confirm the champions across three divisions.

Hampshire will begin their Division One campaign on Monday 30th August, hosting Yorkshire at The Ageas Bowl. A trip to Edgbaston the following week sees James Vince's side take on Warwickshire before returning home to face Nottinghamshire at The Ageas Bowl on Sunday 12th September. Lancashire are the opponents for the Division One curtain-closer on Tuesday 21st September with Liverpool CC the venue.

Hampshire will begin ‘Super September’ in fourth place after carrying 8 points over from the Group Stage.

The format of the LV= Insurance County Championship was remodelled for this season to incorporate two phases following a vote of the first-class county chairs in October 2020, to help mitigate against the impact of Covid-19.

After 10 Group Stage matches the 18 first-class counties have progressed to three divisions based on points accrued. The top team in Division One after the completion of the Division Stage will be crowned as county champions.

The top two teams in Division One will also progress to a showpiece five-day Bob Willis Trophy final at Lord’s from Tuesday 28 September.

Ticketing information for Hampshire's two home Division One fixtures will be announced in due course.
