Membership Cards and Match Arrangements

Members are able to gain admission to matches included within their membership via their membership cards without any requirement to pre-book.

If you were not a Member in 2023, you should by now have received a new membership card or otherwise had communication from the club requesting a photograph.

If you were a Member in 2023, you should continue to use the card already issued to you unless you have been sent a new card.

If you have any query regarding your membership card, please visit the Club Reception on your first visit.

Membership Area

Members will continue to have access to part of The Grace Room for all County Championship and One Day Cup fixtures and will be able to make use of the bar.

The Members-only viewing area will be on The Hammond Roof and Terrace (subject to availability during County Championship matches and One-Day Cup fixtures).

After the recent Members’ Working Group (MWG) meeting, the group confirmed access rights to Members’ facilities at both Bristol and Cheltenham during the coming season.

At Bristol, the Club will allow all guests of Gloucestershire Members, Members of the opposition Club and Members of Clubs with whom we have a reciprocal arrangement (Worcestershire, Hampshire and Essex) to use the Members’ facilities.

In order to assist the stewards and to allow easy re-entry into the Members’ area, the Club will ask all guests of Members without a Members’ Guest Pass, to visit Club Reception on arrival at the ground to collect a wristband confirming their status as a ‘Members’ Guest’. Your host Member should be present when requesting a wristband.  

At Cheltenham, spectators with a ‘Members’ Guest Pass’ will be allowed to use the Members’ facilities on the date for which the ticket is valid at no extra charge. Guests of Members without such a ticket will be asked to pay a surcharge of £5. Members of the opposition club will also be welcome to use the Members’ area.


Guest Tickets

We are pleased to confirm that Full Members will be able to make use of 4 free County Championship tickets and 2 free One Day Cup tickets for friends and family.

One Day Members will be able to take advantage of 2 One Day Cup tickets.

These should be booked for specific matches via your online account alongside any additional tickets you may wish to purchase. Once you have logged in to your account, you should be able to see the 'Member's Guest Pass' option under each of the relevant matches.

Tickets will be e-mailed to you within two weeks of the match.


International Matches & Complimentary Games

Tickets are still available for the two mouth-watering International matches taking place this summer – the Women’s Ashes match between England and New Zealand  on Wednesday 03 July and the Men’s ODI between England and Australia on Sunday 29 September.

We are also thrilled to confirm that the England U19s will be playing India in a four-day Test match at the Towergate Cheltenham Cricket Festival. This fixture will be free to attend for Members who can simply turn-up on the day.

All Gloucestershire Members will also continue to gain free access to all Western Storm matches held in Bristol and at Cheltenham.


Reciprocal Arrangements

Reciprocal arrangements continue in 2024 with Worcestershire, Hampshire and Essex all allowing admission to Full Members of Gloucestershire to County Championship matches.

We recommend Members contact the respective reciprocal county ahead of their first visit to confirm admission/ticketing arrangements.

At a recent Members Working Group meeting, it was agreed that reciprocal arrangements would not apply to the Vitality County Championship match at the Towergate Cheltenham Cricket Festival.



The Club Shop is open at the Seat Unique Stadium and Towergate Cheltenham Cricket Festival on first XI match days. Members benefit from a 10% discount on production of their Membership Card. Otherwise, you can browse our range and purchase items 24 hours per day via the 'Shop' link on our website.

A discount code for Members to use on the online Club Shop will also be sent in due course.

Any additional upgrades are charged at £15. These can only be booked on the day. You should report to the Membership & Ticketing office with your guest to obtain a Premier Club guest pass and make payment (if applicable).
