Sports lovers from Hampshire may be keen to catch Wightlink
Ferries to see the first game of first-class level played by the county on the island for 50 years.
The club is to play to Twenty-twenty matches against a Professional Cricketers Association side at the Newclose ground in Ventnor on June 11th.
Hampshire's team is likely to include Ventnor-born bowler Danny Briggs, who is the first player from the island to represent England at any level, as well as David Griffiths from Shanklin.
He said: "The facilities at Newclose are excellent and I know we’re all looking forward to playing in front of the Club’s considerable following there."
Fans on the island may like to use ferry services themselves to see matches on the mainland at Hampshire's Rose Bowl ground.
Major fixtures this summer include England's one-day internationals against the West Indies on June 16th and South Africa on August 28th.
