Frequently Asked Questions
Where are the Herts Falcons NBL home games taking place?
When do the games take place?
There are four Falcons home regular season game days (dates and times may be subject to change due to weather or other reasons):
- 1pm, Saturday, 22 April 2023, vs London Mets
- 1pm, Sunday, 14 May 2023, vs Sheffield Bruins
- 1pm, Sunday, 28 May 2023, vs Essex Arrows
- 12pm, Sunday, 16 July 2023, vs East London Latin Boys
How long does the game day last?
Most NBL game days are doubleheaders which means that the teams play two 7-inning games on that day. The average NBL baseball game lasts around two and a half hours, though there is no time limit as it is not dictated by a clock. Teams alternate between batting and fielding across seven innings. If the game is tied after seven innings, the game will continue until a winner emerges. There is a break of around 30 minutes after the first game and then the second game begins.
Is baseball a family friendly event?
Yes. Herts Falcons NBL home games are an inclusive event for all ages. Tickets for children under 16 (on the day of the game) are available at very affordable prices. Any ticket holder under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 years of age or over.
When do tickets go on sale?
Season tickets and Single Game Day Tickets will go on sale shortly after the NBL schedule is published.
Are there home and away team-specific seating sections?
Unlike American MLB ballparks, Herts will adopt the British tradition of providing separate spectator areas for home and away fans. Home fans will be on the third base side which can accommodate a greater number of people, while away fans will be on the first base side.
How do I purchase tickets?
We advise fans to buy their ticket online before the day of the event at hertsbaseball.com/tickets
Tickets may also be available to buy in person at the ballpark but, to avoid potential long queues or the risk of tickets to some or all parts of the ballpark being sold out, we recommend you buy your ticket online as early as possible.
How much will the tickets cost?
Tickets vary in price depending on their category. Single tickets start from £1 for children and £2 for adults. These are tickets at ultra low prices for fans who would like to bring their own seats.
Tickets with seats on the first and third base line are priced £5 for adults and £2 for children.
There is a limited number of premium seats which are located behind home plate and they will give those fans an up-close view of the pitcher-versus-batter duel. If demand for premium tickets is high, the club can look to add more in future seasons.
