There are now just 50 days to go until we get our 2023 LV= Insurance County Championship season underway!

Somerset will begin the campaign for that elusive first ever title with a home fixture against 2021 champions Warwickshire.

The 2023 LV= Insurance County Championship format is unchanged from 2022. Across Division One and Division Two, each county will play 14 home and away fixtures with two teams relegated and two teams promoted.

The LV= Insurance County Championship resumes on April 6th, with the first round of matches running over the Easter weekend. All 18 First Class Counties are in action in the opening round.

The opening seven rounds are played from Thursday-Sunday on successive weeks. Each county has a week off for rest and recovery during the first five rounds of the season.

A round of fixtures will be played in the week before the first LV= Insurance Men’s Ashes Test. Five rounds of fixtures will be played in June and July, with the final round of fixtures beginning on September 26th.
