COVID-19 UPDATE - 3rd June 2020

Dear Members & Stakeholders,

Due to the ongoing restrictions on cricket as a result of Covid-19 Coronavirus, and in the interests of safety of all our stakeholders, all Matches that are scheduled to take place at Arundel Castle in July 2020 have been cancelled.

This decision is in line with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), as both domestic professional cricket and recreational cricket in England and Wales remains suspended.

The Club hopes to begin hosting Matches in August, however we will be guided by the ECB and the Government as to when it is safe for matches to take place. Our first scheduled match of the season is now Sunday 2nd August – Duke of Norfolk’s XI v Arundel Town Cricket Club.

Best wishes, James.                                                                                         Chief Operating Officer


Welcome to the Friends of Arundel Castle Cricket Club (FACCC) website, which represents something very special. I have no doubt that it will capture your imagination and provide a small glimpse into the outstanding Cricketing and Educational environment we provide.

As a Club, we host the most fabulous and varied fixture list, which includes a Sussex CCC festival, ECB development matches, MCC, Oxford & Cambridge Universities and visits from many established overseas teams. We also host Women’s matches including England and Sussex fixtures.

Members of the Club enjoy free entry to matches along with other membership benefits including exclusive lunches, why not join us?

As well as having one of the most beautiful grounds in the world, we are fortunate to have an excellent Indoor Cricket School, which hosts a variety of courses and educational projects. We also offer opportunities to attend Lunches and Cricketing talks throughout the year.

We work in partnership with the Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation, a charity which, under the leadership of Tim Shutt, continues to grow and achieve the most wonderful outcomes, benefiting thousands of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and children with special needs.  It is the most brilliant scene.

Another real strength is our link with the Sussex Martlets who hold seven of their home matches at the Arundel Castle ground each year.

FACCC with its magnificent ground in the heart of the West Sussex countryside, provides the most outstanding all-round cricketing programme.  I would encourage you to come and see for yourself – you won’t be disappointed!
