Countdown to the 2019 fixtures announcement

Well, it's October already, so here we go:


The 2018 fixtures were released on November 29#
The 2017 fixtures were released on November 25+
The 2016 fixtures were released on December 2*
The 2015 fixtures were released on November 28
The 2014 fixtures were released on November 26
The 2013 fixtures were released on November 26
The 2012 fixtures were released on November 29
The 2011 fixtures were released on December 14
The 2010 fixtures were released on November 19
The 2009 fixtures were released on December 18
The 2008 fixtures were released on November 14
The 2007 fixtures were released on November 16
The 2006 fixtures were released on November 10
The 2005 fixtures were released on November 12
The 2004 fixtures were released on December 3
The 2003 fixtures were released on November 14
The 2002 fixtures were released on November 21
The 2001 fixtures were released on November 2
The 2000 fixtures were released on November 18

* The first matches in each competition were announced on December 1.
+ T20 Blast fixtures were released on November 24.
# The T20 Blast fixtures were released on November 28

With no points deduction/relegation controversies, with international dates known and next season's framework decided, there's no reason why we shouldn't see prompt publication. However, while the fixtures came out in mid-November several times in the first decade of the 2000s, the pattern of the last 7 years has settled firmly on a date at around the last days of November.

What do we know?

Saturday 25 May: Royal London One-Day Cup Final 11am, Lord’s
Saturday 21 September: Vitality Blast Finals Day 11am, Edgbaston

What else?

As you can see from the above date, the Royal London Cup will be done and dusted on 25 May. As the group stage takes 3 weeks, plus time for the quarters and semis with time inbetween to arrange those, it remains to be seen when the County Championship will start - there certainly won't be much Championship cricket in the opening two months, but there will be a lot during the World Cup, 30 May - 14 July (enough time to play 7 fixtures).

If the 2019 season were to start on the corresponding weekend to this year, the first MCC University matches would begin on Sunday 31 March. But that's a guess, as we don't know how it's all going to tie together with the re-jigged schedule. One would also guess that the week after Blast Finals Day will be needed to finish the Championship, which would suggest a 27 September finish.

Otherwise, it's time to set to work on the hibernation den.

I haven't even fully unpacked my bag from last week yet, never mind filed the season's scorecard collection. Getting a nice collection of cricket and music biogs together for the winter months.

In a strange anarchic way, I'll be very interested to see how next season's fixture list pans out. On one hand, it's yet another load of tinkering; on the other, it does look like we finally have the B&H Cup back in everything but the gold and red branding.

Still on a high from last week - and with Kent in Div One - I've not looked forward to the fixtures publication quite so much in a long while.

i always look to see what outgrounds have gone or old ones back on the rota as far as fixtures are concerned. counties should be made to play at least one 50 over match away from headquarters, to spread the game around the county. southend, basingstoke, oakham, uxbridge, bath, kidderminster,etc. i know money and a decent wicket is why they do not, but it would be nice if they did.

Indeed! Basingstoke didnt even get a Second XI game last summer so i'm hoping for some sort of return next year.

As far as I can tell, the Div One outgrounds for Championship cricket will be Beckenham or Tunbridge Wells, Guildford and Scarborough.

Div Two should offer Arundel, Cheltenham, Chesterfield, Colwyn Bay, Southport and Swansea.

Just nine outground locations. When I started watching county cricket, there were more than thirty each year.

Rumours of more within Lancashire because of OT being used for other matches ... And no doubt concerts.

Apparently not going to be any day-night Championship matches in 2019, which will please many. Indeed, if you've attended any day-night Championship cricket, you may be able to hold claim to having seen a short-lived novelty.

Went to both years at the Rose Bowl. I enjoyed being able to go and watch after work (i managed to catch the last 2 sessions each time) without needing to take any time off but attendances weren't great so i'm not surprised.

yes day night first class cricket is a fizzer.

i went to the first ever day night first class match at the waca in nov. 1994 between w.a and queensland.
w.a included veletta, langer, martyn, moody, murray goodwin, gilchrist and bruce reid.

qld included hayden, love, law, maher, symonds, rackemann and allan border in his last first class season.

over 4 days the total attendance was just 6689 people.

it was cold and there was a little bit of rain on one day , play finishing at 9.30pm. the main complaints were the quality of the ball (a yellow one)

if people do not go to games with that quality of player, then there is no hope for it

there is no day night shield cricket this season.

Essex's day-night CC game last season was soulless. Champion county, decent weather but the smallest crowd I've ever seen at Chelmsford.

However, the previous year's pink ball game did underline a benefit to the formula - the weather was so gloomy that, without the constant use of full-on floodlights, I doubt we'd have completed as much as half of the match.

Woo hoo!

Have read that Hampshire could be going to the Isle of Wight and back to Basingstoke next season whilst the Egregious Bowl is being used for the World Cup. Most exciting news!

Isn't this suggested every year?

Indeed. Something a little more concrete this time though:

The World Cup has sort of left them having to find alternative arrangements.
